Originally written May 23, 2013 on Players View:
On May 21st, Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout became the youngest American League player to hit for the cycle since 1930 at 21 years old. The second year phenom won AL rookie of the year in 2012 and he also finished second for the league’s MVP award, behind only Miguel Cabrera. But will Trout be able to dethrone the reigning MVP for the title in 2013? As of May 22nd, the Angel in the outfield is hitting .297 with 34 RBI. He has avoided the sophomore slump in nearly every facet as he continues to devour the MLB pitcher by pitcher. Please click here to read this story. The post Can Mike Trout snatch the MVP? appeared first on Players View.

  • With a subpar .300 batting ave. and 34 RBI's I don't Trout is even in the hunt for MVP.

    Miggy is batting .387 and 54 RBI's.. Several other players are having a better year than Trout thus far..

    It is early however..
  • I think when you look at his consideration it is heavily based on the fact that he is so young playing at a high level.
