Angels Call Up 19 Year Old Mike Trout
It isn't often that a teenager gets a call up from a big league club, but the Angels decided to make the move with 19 year old outfielder Mike Trout just before the All-Star break.
Regarded as one of the top prospects in baseball, Trout will be in Anaheim wearing No. 27 when the Angels take on the Mariners tonight.
Trout was batting .324 with 32 extra-base hits, a .415 on-base percentage and a Texas League-leading 28 stolen bases for Arkansas. He recently played in the Texas League All-Star Game and was scheduled to play in the All-Star Futures Game in Phoenix on Sunday.
