Fans not buying Mike Trout

Due to injuries and setbacks, the three-time American League MVP has witnessed a decline in performance in recent years. Due to a broken hand bone, he missed the most of the 2023 season with a career-low.263 batting average and.858 OPS.

On social media, some fans believe that Trout’s recent on-field struggles shouldn’t carry the same weight as those of other players who have consistently performed well.

“What brings Trout here? Haha.” – One fan was posted.

Fans of Mike Trout expressed their displeasure on social media right away, citing what they saw as an incorrect depiction of his present abilities. Many videogame enthusiasts argue that athletes who are at the peak of their ability should only be granted a 99 rating, citing Trout’s final few seasons as evidence for this claim.


Mike Trout is aware of his recent drop in performance.

Even the outfielder for the Los Angeles Angels has acknowledged his difficulties from the previous season. The 32-year-old superstar acknowledged in a recent news conference that his issues have been mechanical—specifically, a bad propensity to “slide.”

Even though he has one of the league’s fastest bat speeds, Trout thinks that resolving this issue will enable him to improve as a player in 2024.

“It’s 2018, and Trout shouldn’t be a 99 overall.” added user

Fans are getting more excited and scandalous about the impending MLB season and current spring training as they wait for the debut of MLB The Show 2024 on March 19. This is due in part to the recent debate about player ratings.

Whether Trout can silence his detractors and reclaim his spot among baseball’s elite players is a matter of time.
