Mike Trout 240 lbs??

Postby Padsin05 » Thu Feb 14, 2013 5:45 pm

Mike Trout reported to Angels' camp at 240 pounds.
Trout, who was listed at 210 pounds last season, gained 10-15 pounds over the winter. In the words of Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times, while the 21-year-old outfielder looked like an NFL running back last season, he now resembles a fullback. Still, we wouldn't hesitate grabbing him as one of the first players off the board in fantasy drafts this spring.

jeez thats a lot of weight to put on in one off-season

Not sure a 240 pound player has ever stolen 40 bases in a season

This can't be good news for fantasy owners. If I wasn't already, I'm taking Braun and MCab over this guy now for sure
Why don't they just get a house that's already painted?

I guess he's trying to go for the long all more this year as opposed to defense and base running. He actually is starting to look like Miggy a bit too, haha.

As long as his head doesn't start blowing up like Barry Bonds I think he'll be fine.

I wish there was a stat site that cross referenced steals for a player by season relative to his playing weight for that season. Off to google...
