Jered Weaver is the ace of the staff for the Angels, but has had issues avoiding the disables list this season. When healthy Weaver is one of the best pitchers in the AL. He has won seven games for the Halos, while sporting a 2.87 ERA in 103.1 innings pitched. He has struck out 82 batters and has just walked 24 with a WHIP of 1.10. The right-hander is limiting the opposition to a .233 batting average on the season, with left-handed batters just managing a .231 average. He knows how to pitch when runners are in scoring position, as indicated by teams just having a .230 average in this situation.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have set high expectations coming into this season, and for the second straight off season they were able to sign a highly coveted free agent.

This season has gone from bad to worst with the team trailing the Texas Rangers by 14 games in the American League West division. One reason they have struggled is that they have allowed 546 runs this season, which is third most in the AL.

Mark Trumbo 2012 Highlights

 

Mark Trumbo is one of the best young power hitters in baseball. he gives the Angels another power threat in their lineup. He only has a .237 average on the season, but has hit 27 HRs to include 73 RBIs in 451 at-bats. He struggles somewhat with a .233 average when runners are in scoring position, but has 47 RBIs in this situation.

Thoughts Going Forward:

The Angels have the talent to be a great team, but they have not been able to put it together this season. There is always a chance that they play better next season. 

Mike Trout is one of the best young players in the game of baseball today. The outfielder plays great defense by using his tremendous speed to track down fly balls. He is also a great hitter that can hit for both power and a high average. Trout has a .330/.425/.996 triple-slash on the season in 446 at-bats with 20 HRs and 73 RBIs.  He has 60 extra-base hits and 225 Total Bases to include 147 hits overall. He is still a legitimate threat to steal bases with 26 on season already, and has only been caught four times. He can easily have another 30-30 season. He is a right-handed hitter, but handles southpaws with relative ease, as indicated by his .330 average against them. The young outfielder is a terror for opposing pitchers with runners in scoring position with a .303/.433/.937 triple-slash in 107 at-bats that includes 51 RBIs.
