Angels Mike Trout Wins AL Rookie Of The Month, Again

In an announcement that surprised no one, Angels outfielder Mike Trout was named AL Rookie of the Month for the fourth consecutive month, according to MLB Public Relations.

While no MLB rookie has ever earned the honor in four consecutive months (let alone three), Trout becomes the first rookie to be named AL Rookie of the Month four times in one season since Ichiro Suzuki did so in 2001. Suzuki earned the honor five times that season, and barring a serious meltdown in September it appears that Trout will match that mark.

In 28 games in August, Trout hit .284 with seven home runs, 19 RBI, 11 stolen bases and posted an .866 OPS.

Trout is the clear-cut favorite for AL Rookie of the Year, and should garner quite a few AL MVP votes as well.
