Mike Trout #27 Angels
Mike Trout, what a talent! This kid got called up to the big leagues in 2012 and did nothing short of dominate when he hit .326, 30 HR, 83 RBI, 129 Runs and 49 SB. Trout is the popular pick for the over all first player taken in fantasy baseball drafts. Mike Trout has a real shot at a Triple Crown in the Major Leagues on any given year which makes him a fantasy stud.

Here is a case for Mike Trout to hit for the Triple Crown:

Trout holds a .364 batting average on balls in play, but he strikes out in more that 20 percent of his at bats. He'll need to reduce his strikeouts to win the batting title and move down in the lineup to get more RBI opportunities. Trout is young, born in 1991 and the sky is the limit for this kid.

2012 Stats: .326 BA, 30 HR, 83 RBI, 49 SB
2012 AL Rookie of the Year

The case for a repeat 2012: Just think what he'll do with a full season of at-bats (he was called up in late April in 2012) and a bit of experience. Projecting growth from these stellar numbers might be a bit much to expect, but there should be much more to come from the 21-year old Trout.

The case against a repeat 2012: Baseball history is replete with rookies of the year whose career trajectories did not continue upward(Pat Listach and Bob Hamelin, anyone?). While Trout's young legs should have several more strong stolen base seasons in them, the Angles likely won't be overly reckless with such a precious commodity.

The verdict: Given the hype that Trout has generated with his performance, many would consider even a .285-25-80-40 a disappointment, yet that's where the smart money lies.
