While the Los Angeles Angels struggled through much of the early portion of this season, so too did Mike Trout. Last year’s rookie sensation was hitting just .261 a month into this season — not terrible, but nowhere near the eye-popping totals he put in 2012. He has rebounded, though, and enters this weekend’s series with the Red Sox as the team leader in on-base percentage (.389), hits (107) and RBIs (55). NESN’s Jamie Erdahl caught up with Trout prior to Friday’s series opener. Check out what he had to say in the video above.

Angels Free Agent Spotlight: Mascots

To say the Angels' season has been a rollercoaster ride thus far would be an understatement.   Indeed, there are few other ways to describe an eight game win streak snapped by a Houston Astros sweep.
