Although he was away for a long time due to injury, he vomited the spirit of hitting 40 homers. He’s expected to hit more arches if he plays full-time without getting sick. Expectations are rising for Los Angeles Angels Mike Trout (32).
On the 4th (Korean time), MLB.com, the official homepage of the Major League Baseball, selected the players who are expected to perform best for each position in the 2023 season. Out of a total of 10 players selected, Trout took first place in the center fielder category.
The media said, ‘Last year, Seattle Mariners Julio Rodriguez played a great role, but he will not be able to break Trout. In the 2022 season, Trout didn’t play many games due to injury, but if he plays full-time in 2023, he will see some really amazing numbers,’ he predicted Trout’s performance.
Trout had such an overwhelming season. Although he was absent for a long time due to injury, he did his part by hitting a home run after his return. Trout recorded 124 hits in 438 at-bats, 40 homers, a batting average of 0.283, an on-base percentage of 0.369, and an OPS of 0.999. He ranked second in the American League home run category behind Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees, who hit 62 homers. 스포츠토토
Trout could have hit more home runs had it not been for his injuries. He was also able to surpass the record of 45 in 2019, which was a career high in the home run category.
If Trout is healthy, the Angels could look even higher. This is because the Angels also fell helplessly with his injury last year. The Angels, with their thin depth, couldn’t stand the bad news of the superstar’s injury.
Trout boasts a brilliant award-winning history throughout his career. He ranks first in stolen bases (2012), first in RBI (2014), and first in runs scored (2012-2014, 2016), but has yet to hold the home run title. Can he add a new record to his career this year?
