The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim seem to have a future Hall of Fame player on their hands with Mike Trout.

The 22 year old outfielder from Vineland, New Jersey has been making some noise with his heavy bat and defense. Trout will be entering the third year of his young career as he is already close to cracking 70 home runs in his career.

By the way things are going with him in the batters box, he’ll more than likely reach that 100 home run milestone in just two seasons. Maybe sooner if he has a power surge and hits over 33 next season.

Now we all know how good of a hitter this kid is, but this season he was in a tight race with guys like Baltimore Orioles  Chris Davis, New York Yankees Robinson Cano, Detroit Tigers Miguel Cabrera, Baltimore’s J.J. Hardy, Detroit’s Torii Hunter, Baltimore’s Adam Jones and Boston Red Sox’s David Ortiz.

Trout hit .323/.423/.557 with 27 home runs and 97 RBI’s through 157 games played and 589 at bats. This is his second straight Silver Slugger award.
