Rotowire: Mar 17 / 9:56p ET
News: Trout went 2-for-4 with two home runs and six RBI in the Cactus League matchup against the Rockies on Tuesday.
Impact: Not that you needed any added motivation to draft him, but Trout has been phenomenal this spring, tallying three homers and 10 RBI in just nine games. Trout swung at the first pitch for both his homers Tuesday, which he told Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register is part of an overall strategy to reduce his strikeouts and be more aggressive at the plate. If Trout can keep the power we saw in 2014 while cutting down on his league-leading strikeout total, he could be in-line for a huge season in 2015.

News: Trout is aiming to cut down on strikeouts and increase his stolen bases in 2015, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Impact: Trout cited "chasing the high pitch" as the main cause for his increase in strikeouts last season (from 136 in 2013 to 184 in 2014). His stolen bases saw a sharp decline, mostly because he didn't make many attempts, trying just 18 times in 2014 versus 40 times in 2013. If he can increase his stolen base total back to around the 30 mark this season, it would only further cement him as the top fantasy option.
