Mike Trout

Mike Trout

Mike is an angel – a Los Angeles Angel, that is. Mike was drafted by the Arizona Angels in the 2009 amateur draft and he played for various minor league teams until 2011, when he was picked up by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. His breakout season as an outfielder for the Angels was in 2012; that year, Mike won the Jackie Robinson Rookie of the Year Award and the Silver Slugger Award and was the first runner-up for the American League Most Valuable Player Award. He may not have wings, but this Angel is a home run.
