AL MVP: Mike Trout, Los Angeles Angels

Mike Trout is the best player in baseball.

There’s nobody more exciting to watch, which is why his legend grows daily. His numbers are a mere technicality of his awesomeness that he brings to the diamond on an everyday basis.

Trout’s batting average is currently .303 to go along with 21 homers, 44 RBI, 57 runs scored and nine-stolen bases.  If you turn on the television and go over to the MLB Network, you can see his defensive plays practically on a loop. Good luck to the others that think they have a shot.

Second half players to watch: Albert Pujols, Josh Donaldson, Miguel Cabrera
