Mike Trout has a few career milestones within reach over the final seven games of the Angels’ homestand. Thanks to the Angels’ public relations staff for their tireless research:
• If he scores today, Trout will have 200 runs in his first 249 games, which will make him the fastest to 200 runs by any player in MLB since 1940 (Ted Williams, 225 games and Barney McCosky, 236 games).
• If Trout homers today or tomorrow, he’d be the first player ever with 48 home runs and 50 stolen bases in his first 250 games, and the fourth player since 1935 with 14 triples and 48 homers in his first 250 (DiMaggio, Williams, Mays). If he hits three more homers in his next nine games, Trout will be the fastest player ever to reach 50 home runs and 50 stolen bases.
