Ohtani Was ‘Inhibitor’ or ‘Baseball Genius’ Home Run Explodes… Look At 4th MVP

By pestfood.com

Mike Trout (33), the “baseball genius” of the Los Angeles Angels in the Major League Baseball, has been washing up his sluggishness over the past three years and his slugging power has exploded at the beginning of the season.

Trout was sluggish after suffering from injuries during his three active seasons, with Shohei Ohtani (LA Dodgers) playing for the Angels and winning MVP twice. When Ohtani left for the Dodgers, Trout regained his “baseball genius” appearance.

As of Thursday (Korea time), Trout has played in 19 games, recording a batting average of .662 with .8 homers, 11 RBIs, 13 runs scored, and five steals. He is tied for first in home runs in the Major League Baseball. His OPS is ninth.

Trout hit a come-from-behind winning home run in the eighth inning of the game against Tampa Bay on the 16th. He hit a 74-mile (119.1 kilometers) curveball against pitcher Phil Mateon in the top of the eighth inning with one out and second base when his team was losing 0-1. A large 420-foot (128-meter) home run. The Angels turned the game around by scoring five runs in the eighth inning and won 7-3.

Trout also hit a homerun in a game against Tampa Bay on Sunday. After one out in the first inning, he hit a 93-mile sinker off pitcher Zach Rittell for a solo homer over the fence. It was his eighth homer of this season. The number is the same as that of Marcell Osuna (eight homers) of the Atlanta Braves. Tyler O’Neill of the Boston Red Sox ranks second with seven homers.

Trout did not have a home run or a hit in the game against Tampa Bay on Wednesday, but he stole two bases. Trout came out as the leadoff hitter in the sixth inning when his team was losing 0-2, and walked to get on base. He then stole second and third bases in succession. It is the first time in five years and nine months that Trout has stolen two bases in a game since the game against the Chicago White Sox on July 23, 2018.

Trout is called a “baseball genius.” In 2012, he hit .326 with 30 home runs, 83 RBIs and 49 steals, 129 points, and OPS.963, winning the Rookie of the Year award in the American League and ranking second in the MVP vote. 퀸알바

Since then, he has won three American League MVP awards in 2014, 2016 and 2019. Until 2020, he had never ranked fifth in the voting for the American League MVP. He ranked second four times, and fourth and fifth respectively.

In 2021, however, he played in only 36 games due to injury. In 2022, he also hit .283 with 40 home runs and 80 RBIs, but played in only 119 games. Last year, he played in 81 games due to long-term injury, with only 18 home runs.
