Arkansas Travelers OF Mike Trout called up to Los Angeles Angels

LITTLE ROCK ( - Arkansas Travelers' outfielder Mike Trout was widely regarded as one of the most Major League-ready prospects in the minors this year. Trout was ranked No. 2 among prospects by Baseball America prior to the season and was seen as a future outfielder for the Los Angeles Angels.

Trout gets his shot Friday against Seattle after an Angels' centerfielder suffered a hamstring injury. He will be sharing the outfield with Pine Bluff native Torii Hunter.
