Angels spring training 2013: Mike Trout reports at 240 pounds
- Updated: February 15, 2013
Now a reported 240 pounds, Trout was listed at 210 last season according to the Angels’ official website, but sources close to the situation believe he played at close to 220 pounds and looked like an NFL running back. At Angels’ camp this season, he is said to resemble an NFL fullback.
The 21-year-old is known for his outstanding athleticism and routinely made outstanding catches in the outfield throughout last season in addition to showcasing outstanding speed. How the added weight affects his mobility and power, whether in a negative or positive way, remains to be seen.
As the 2012 American League MVP runner up and Rookie of the Year, Trout ha a sensational first full season. He finished with a .326 batting average with 30 home runs, 83 RBIs and a league-leading 49 stolen bases. He was the primary reason for their resurgence after a poor start, despite the team narrowly missing the postseason.
