Mike Trout has been something of a phenomenon this season. While he leads all rookies in most offensive stat columns, he also finds himself in first place for batting average, stolen bases and runs amongst all MLB players. Trout is a definite shoo-in for AL Rookie of the Year, but is the AL batting title certain to be his?
Since his average hit .345 on August 23, Trout has gone 15-for-67, hitting just .224. Another statistic going against him, Trout has batted .302 against the Angels' remaining opponents. Of course, .302 is a good batting average, but it will not be enough to hold off the rest of the field.
A nine-point gap does not sound so bad for Mauer anymore. He can do this.
