The Rise of Baseball's Most Exciting Player: Mike Trout

August 30, 2014
INDIANA SPORTS PAGE



Mike Trout has had one of the best starts to a career ever. And just to showcase this, I ran a few numbers. I gave Trout the same statistical increase (to project his future) that Ken Griffey (comparable player) had when entering his prime. 

Let me elaborate. 

Ken Griffey averaged 21-plus home runs in the first four years of his career, and during his prime, (excluding time on Disabled List) he averaged about 48.5 homers over the course of seven years. From his first four years to the beginning of his prime, the amount of jacks he hit more than doubled. After that, I gave that same percent increase to Trout, and then you have the amount of dingers the Millville Meteor would be projected to have when giving him Griffey’s increase through his first few years and his 7 or 8 year prime.
