Just a week after the Milwaukee Brewers lost reigning NL MVP Christian Yelich for the season due to a fractured knee cap, the Angels have lost reigning AL MVP Mike Trout for the season to foot surgery. Trout finishes the season with a .291/.438/.645 slash line, 110 runs scored, 104 RBI and a career-high 45 HR. In addition to winning last season’s MVP awards, Trout and Yelich are also frontrunners this year. In spite of his injury, Trout will likely still win the AL award, while Yelich’s chances could be fading.
