The MLB season is nearly two months old, and already reigning MVP Mike Trout has done some spectacular things at the plate, in the outfield and on the basepaths. He's on his way to another All-Star Game selection, too. Here are five of his top moments early on in 2015 — Jill Painter Lopez
Youngest to 100-100
Mike Trout hit career home runs No. 100 and 101 in Houston on April 17, becoming the youngest player in MLB history at 23 years, 253 days, to reach 100 homer and 100 stolen bases. Through Thursday, he's batting .297 with 11 homers and 25 RBI in 2015.

Trout, with a headfirst slide, used his right hand to go around Boston third baseman Brock Holt and evade the tag on May 22. As his momentum carried him forward, his left foot touched and stayed on the bag. It was a jaw-dropping, athletic play and after review, Trout was ruled safe.
Trout made a spectacular, game-saving, leaping, over-the-shoulder catch at the track at Oakland on April 30. The Angels had a one-run lead in the bottom of the ninth, but the A's had loaded the bases. Trout saved the game — and the day — for the Angels.

All in a day's work: Big HR & diving catch
Trout did it all in the Angels' 4-3 win over Seattle on May 6. He made a diving catch to rob Chris Taylor in right-center field and also hit a 441-foot home run. His offensive and defensive highlight-reel plays set the stage for Johnny Giavotella's walk-off hit.
Still a fan favorite
On Tuesday, MLB released its early fan ballot results for the All-Star Game in Cincinnati and Trout is second in votes for AL outfielders with 1,297,085 votes. Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain is the only outfielder with more at 1,376,217. Trout is the reigning All-Star Game MVP.
