Trout Expected To Be Top Fantasy Player

Feb 4, 2013 8:16 AM

Mike Trout, who wasn't even in the Major Leagues when the 2012 season started, is expected to be one of the top fantasy players heading into this year.

He was the American League Rookie of the Year and runner-up to Miguel Cabrera in MVP voting.

Trout led the Majors in runs scored, with 129, and steals, with 49. He batted .326 with 30 homers and 83 RBIs, solidifying himself as a true five-category stud.

He was also the recipient of some luck, as his .383 batting average on balls in play was the third highest in the Major Leagues.

The Dodgers did background work on Josh Hamilton, but they never seriously considered signing the slugger, according to sources.

The two sides spoke on the final day of the winter meetings, and were in contact as recently as a few days ago, but an offer was never made.
