I picked him up in a deep league, see what he can do.
he has the talent to put up good numbers, but I think the question is how long will he be up? right now I would have to assume he is only up for now because Bourjous is hurt. once Bourjous is healthy I imagine he goes back to playing CF? it's not like Bourjos is struggling and he would be the one to go down. I imagine the rest of the OF/DH will continue to be Wells/Hunter/Abrea. so unless they trade one of those(unlikely) then Trout is only up until Bourjos is healthy, and that may be right after the all star break.

Angels Go Fishing...Catch a Trout !!

The angels call up their top prospect...a kid not even 20. I would have bet big bucks he would never see the Show this year. 8-o


EDIT: I was late posting this. I didn't see the earlier post.

The decision to promote Mike Trout was based solely on Peter Bourjos' hamstring injury.
In other words, it's completely unclear if Trout will remain in the majors following Bourjos' return. The Angels are unsure if Bourjos will require a stint on the disabled list. Regardless, Trout should get the start in center field for all three of Los Angeles' games against the Mariners this weekend, and if he starts out with a bang, it's hard to envision him being sent back to Double-A by a team in a dogfight for the American League West.


I would be more excited if Bourjous was to go on the DL and give Trout a decent amount of time to see what he can do.
the Angles have 3 games at home and then the all star break. if Bourjos is set to return playing after the all star break and Trout gets sent back down to the minors after playing 3 games, it's going to be a big disappointment through fantasy baseball.
could one look at this as if Bourjos must be going on the DL? because if they really felt Bourjos was going to be able to play after the all star break then why would they call up their top prospect for just 3 games?

Haha - so did I.

Let's just hope the Brass don't jerk him around like some other prospects in the past. :-o
