The Angels' season began on a brilliant April evening, with a shutout of Kansas City and rousing ovations for Albert Pujols at Angel Stadium. The same night, Mike Trout collected two hits for the Salt Lake Bees in an 8-7 loss in front of some 4,000 fans in Tacoma, Wash.
Trout spent nearly all of that month traveling to Pacific Coast League outposts like Reno and Tucson, while the Angels sank in the American League West and Pujols waited in agony for his first home run. Finally, mired in last place on April 28, the Angels summoned one of the most ballyhooed prospects in recent baseball history.
When Trout arrived in the clubhouse that day, some of the Angels veterans sarcastically called him "Jesus." A 20-year-old was supposed to save their season.
Thursday was the two-month anniversary of Trout's call-up. He has appeared in only 54 of the Angels' 76 games. But that has been enough time for Trout to lay claim to a first-half award rarely associated with the O...
BEST OF MAXIM
A few weeks ago, I did this hard-hitting investigative report that proves Mike Trout is the last son of Krypton, Superman. In case that didn't convince you, and how could it not, Trout provided us with even more evidence today with this jaw-dropping catch:
That's levitation, homes. It might also be the best catch of the season and the best catch...
Mike Trout has transitioned from talented rookie to unbelievable talent in one smooth leap. He used to be a phenom, but it's quite possible that the right word hasn't yet been invented yet to describe the things he does.
So how about "Troutacular"?
Really, there's no other way to describe the Angels' 20-year-old outfielder, who takes his game to new levels...
The Angels have been pretty pleased with the play of their 20-year-old rookie, Mike Trout… to put it lightly. On Wednesday night Trout again flashed his glove and robbed a would be home run. I’d say this young man will be in the big leagues for quite a while.

Mike Trout made an amazing catch on Wednesday night to rob JJ Hardy of a home run. In what will likely go down as one of the best catches of the 2012 season, Trout leaped high in the air and then crashed into the wall after making the catch.
Closer examination of the play reveals just how high the 20 year old top prospect jumped to make the play. A graphic displayed on MLB network...
The big stir is all about the Washington Nationals rookie Bryce Harper this year, but Mike Trout is having one of the best rookie seasons ever for the Angels. He robbed the Orioles of a home run last night in the Angels 13-1 victory and added four hits. He is also currently leading the American League in batting average. I would say this is a little bit better than his counter...
It was the Catch of the Day. Los Angeles Angels rookie Mike Trout added another breath-taking moment to his growing highlight reel Wednesday night, going high over the center field wall at Camden Yards to steal a home run from Baltimore's J.J. Hardy in the first inning of a game the Angels eventually won 13-1 over the Orioles. "There's no doubt it was as good a catch...
Eventually we’ll find out something Los Angeles Angels sensation Mike Trout can’t do on the baseball field. Coming into tonight’s game against the Baltimore Orioles he led the American League in batting with a .335 average so we know he can hit. Despite not playing his first Major League game this season [...]
Mike Trout pulled a Torii Hunter on Wednesday afternoon in Baltimore, and fittingly, Torii Hunter was the first one to congratulate him for it. Trout robbed Baltimore's J.J. Hardy of a home run by leaping well over the right-center fence at Camden Yards, right in front of the Southwest Airlines sign. Talk about flight. Check out the catch of the year below.

Which is the best highlight from last night?
And guys, please don’t have a bias point of view. I know some of you HATE the Phillies like I do, but Utley’s homerun was incredibly dramatic. Also, to see a guy overcome an injury like he had is always nice to see. Any baseball fan has to appreciate it. The Chapman flip is hilariously awesome...
TORONTO (AP) -- Rookie Mike Trout and Mark Trumbo each hit two-run homer, Alberto Callaspo added a solo blast and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Toronto Blue Jays 9-7 on Thursday night for their 14th victory in 18 games.
Trout went 2 for 5 to raise his American League-leading average to .345 as the Angels, who have won 25 of 33 overall, improved to 14-1 in their past 15 road contests...
The only thing that saved Dave Haren from a loss Thursday night in Toronto was the Angels' offense.
If not for Mike Trout, Mark Trumbo, Albert Pujols and everyone else who contributed in an 9-7 win over the Blue Jays, Haren would be sitting on his eighth loss of the season.
He won only because the Angels kept pounding out hits to put him in front. Every time he gave up a lead...

All of the talk last night (and this morning) was about Mike Trout's amazing catch against the Orioles. But Darnell McDonald of the Boston Red Sox had a pretty awesome catch of his own in Boston's 10-4 win over the Blue Jays during the day. Kelly Johnson hit a deep fly ball to right center that McDonald tracked down, leaped high...
