The July 29th, 2014 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels including Trout excels on balls out of the zone, Angels sign Dominican prospect LHP Franklin Salomon and much more…
The Story: Mike Trout is excelling on balls out of the zone.
The Monkey Says: I knew he was good, but not that good. We’ve seen a few times already this year that for a pitch to be too low for Trout to crush that, it has to be subterranean. It is actually pretty remarkable that he can do that given how disciplined he is as well.
The Story: The Angels signed 19-year old Domincan prospect LHP Franklin Salomon.
The Monkey Says: I know nothing about him, but it is a really slow news day, so it gets a mention.
The Story: Hector Santiago is making a difference through his Little League program.
The Monkey Says: Let me know when he starts making a difference in the Major Leagues.
The Story: A look at Matt Shoemaker’s ability to sustain his strong start.
The Monkey Says: Nominally, this is a fantasy baseball post, but it provides good insight into how Shoemaker is having success.
