Los Angeles Angels: Prize Trout
isports web - almost 2 years
Trout is hitting a solid .289 on the young 2015 season, but his bat was not even needed last night. It would be cliché for me to tell you that the Los Angeles Angels have an angel in their outfield. But if you watched the reigning American League MVP, Mike Trout play last night, then you might reconsider the whole cliché ordeal. May 13, 2015 was Trout’s most recent example of flight. The Rockies Shortstop, Troy Tulowitzki, hit a would-be go-ahead home run in the top of the 10th. That was until Mike Trout raced to the wall where he made a remarkable jump to steal the ball from the clutches of a Rockies lead. Later in the 11th, he gunned Carlos Gonzalez at home plate to end the inning. The play was originally scored as a Rockies run, but upon review there was no denying Trout’s most valuable arm. Angels broadcaster, Victor Rojas would later say, “That is what MVP’s do.” At the bottom of the inning, right fielder, Kole Calhoun, would tattoo the ball off the right field wall, put ...

10 Major League Baseball Players Who Underwent the Knife Last Season: An Update for 2015
Huffington Post Sports - almost 2 years
As the 2015 Major League Baseball season begins, I looked back at 10 athletes with notable season-ending injuries from last year -- each requiring corrective surgery. While elbow injuries are prevalent in baseball (due to the biomechanical forces in throwing), common injuries also include herniated discs, shoulder and knee injuries. Let's take a look at where these 10 athletes are now as the 2015 MLB season begins. Prince Fielder - First Baseman - Texas Rangers The Injury: Fielder had to have season-ending neck surgery in May 2014. Fielder had a herniated disc in his neck, and his symptoms were getting worse, causing weakness in his left arm. He underwent a cervical fusion of the C5-C6 vertebrae. 2015 Update: Fielder was cleared for spring training in February 2015 after recovering from surgery, and it appears that he will play in the 2015 season.

Giants missed a few power picks in past drafts
San Francisco Chronicle - over 3 years
The Giants must feel like that lonely single man at a fancy wedding, leaning against a tree while attractive couples engage in witty conversation and dance the night away. All around baseball, home-run hitters craft lasting imprints with their three-run blasts and tape-measure shots - while the Giants pray for that 38-hop single with a guy on third. If home runs meant everything, the Mariners and Cubs would be playoff-bound and the Dodgers would be trying to explain their futility. For the Giants - second-to-last in baseball with just 73 homers in 121 games through Saturday - lack of power has become a full-blown crisis. There's no question the Giants have drafted magnificently in recent years, assembling championship teams with homegrown talent that the Dodgers, Yankees, Angels and Tigers couldn't hope to match. Did some of today's top sluggers fail to catch their eye in the annual amateur draft? Perhaps, but in the realm of major, inexcusable mistakes, Brian Sabean and his staf ...
