MLB wrap: Mike Trout pulling away in MVP race despite DJ LeMahieu’s heroics

first_img MLB trade rumors: Mets will ‘have no issues’ sending Zack Wheeler to Yankees In fact, LeMahieu leads Trout significantly on those fronts, as he finished the Yankees’ 5-1 win over the Mets with a .342 average and 110 hits on the season.But here’s the kicker, despite leading Trout by nearly 50 points in average, Trout is beating LeMahieu by 65 points in on-base percentage. Related News DJ LeMahieu has been absolutely incredible for the Yankees this season, but Mike Trout is the front-runner for the MVP in the American League.Trout went 2 for 5 with two home runs and four RBIs on Wednesday in the Angels’ 6-2 win over the Rangers. He now leads LeMahieu in every category offensively save two — batting average and hits. He’s also topping him in slugging, OPS, OPS+, WAR, home runs, runs scored, stolen bases and walks. He has walked 51 more times than LeMahieu, which makes his numbers even more impressive.Absolutely no one wants to pitch to him and he’s still smoking the ball at-bat after at-bat.And, for those out there who say a player who plays for a losing team can’t win an MVP, go talk to Giancarlo Stanton, whose Marlins went 77-85 in 2017 when he won the award. He did so because his numbers far trumped anything any other player did in the National League that year.If the season ended today, Trout’s numbers absolutely demolish those of LeMahieu. And yes, the Yankees infielder has been a huge bright spot in a lineup that sustained a lot of injuries.But, Mike Trout didn’t have Shohei Ohtani or Andrelton Simmons for a month and Justin Upton was out for two months. Kole Calhoun is also batting .229 and Albert Pujols is hitting .234.Trout has willed a mediocre and injured Angels team over .500. That’s the definition of MVP worthy.LeMahieu has been fantastic, but he is not leading the MVP race.Studs of the NightStephen Strasburg tossed 7 1/3 innings of scoreless baseball against the Marlins with 14 strikeouts.
