Probably not. Closest guys I can think of are Kemp and Larry Walker. They were both probably in the mid-220s. I'm guessing there have been quite a few guys in that 210-220 type range who were big time power speed guys (Mondesi, Canseco, Bichette). I doubt Trout finishes Spring Training at anything over 230.
Yeah he could/should trim some in the next month and a half...
Hanley mighta been 230ish a few years ago..
I just think it's discouraging to have yet another significant variable regarding Trout. I know he was amazing last year but I can't help but think you're rolling the dice a bit with him.
