Question of the Day: 4/20 …

“When will Mike Trout be called up?!” — @SeWwEwW

I’m of the belief that in order for him to be up before August, things would have to get drastic. He’s obviously tearing it up in Triple-A (he came into today with a .383/.426/.550 slash line through his first 15 games), but too much needs to happen on this roster in order for him to be in an everyday role right now (and that’s the only reason he should be up so early).

Think about it. It’s not just Bobby Abreu who would need to be traded/released for the roster spot to come open. If he has an everyday job in the outfield, that would mean Torii Hunter, Vernon Wells or Peter Bourjos are relegated to the bench — and thus it’s even harder for Mark Trumbo to get at-bats. I’m not saying that may not eventually be the best option for the Angels; I’m just saying the Angels need to be sure that it’s what they need and that Trout will be a clear upgrade in the big leagues the rest of the way (Are we sure about that already?) if they’re going to make a drastic move like that in the first few months.

FWIW, here‘s what Jerry Dipoto said about Trout yesterday.

Hopefully this will make sense as we go on.
