Angels call up top prospect

The Angels have called up 19 year old Mike Trout to the majors and put him in the starting lineup tonight.

Earlier this year Mike Trout was named the #1 prospect in baseball by ahead of Rays pitcher Jeremy Hellickson and Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper. It will likely be a short stay for him in the majors with the year Peter Bourjos is having but you never know.

The organization needs the energy in the worst way right now. It has been a while since a high profile prospect has come on and made a big impact on a regular basis. As an Angels fan I hope his career is more like Jered Weaver and less like Dallas McPherson and Brandon Wood.

I will neither confirm nor deny that I wrote this just so I could mention that Mike Trout will be roaming the same outfield that Tim Salmon did not so long ago.
