Luckily for Shohei Ohtani, when he decided to bring his two-way prowe s to Major League Baseball he signed with an Angels team that has arguably the best player in the world, Mike Trout, to help share some of the pre sure and spotlight.And not only has Trout helped the Japanese phenom adapt to life as one of the more hyped players in baseball, but as a member of a big-league clubhouse, as well.According to ESPN.com, Trout effortle sly made it a point to ingratiate Ohtani with the team early in spring training, as illustrated by an afternoon golf cart ride with outfielders Justin Upton Hanley Ramirez Jersey and Kole Calhoun.Mike Trout showing the new kid, Shohei Ohtani around camp in a golf cart. pic.twitter.com/1dsbknG4oR Baseball4Life (@Baseballlifers) February 22, 2018"I think that kind of symbolizes the type of friendship they have," Grace McNamee, the Angels' Japanese media liaison, told ESPN.com. "Mike has done a really great job breaking the ice for Shohei, and he's such a great role model. Here's somebody who's such a great player and super succe sful in the major leagues, and he's so humble and kind and fun. You can see a connection between the two."Trout said: "We see him when he comes in, and he wants to work. He wants to get better at pitching and hitting. As a team, we're a big family here, so we want to make him feel comfortable."Ohtani has certainly Joe Kelly Jersey appeared comfortable against top competition with a 4-1 record and 3.18 ERA on the mound, while batting .289 with six home runs and 20 RBIs. As for his English, that's still a work in progre s."Everything I say, he just laughs," Trout said. "I don't know if he even knows what I'm saying. But he's a good dude."According to McNamee, Ohtani has picked up on a few questionable phrases."I think he knows how to say 'weak sauce,'" she told ESPN.com. "I don't know if Mike is the one who taught him."Regardle s of whether or not we Johnny Pesky Jersey can blame Trout for that one, the two-time AL MVP seems to have been a great resource for Ohtani on and off the field.

MLB trade rumors: Justin Verlander could still be option for contenders such as Astros, Yankees

Acquiring the Tigers' Justin Verlander at the trade deadline isn't going to be easy for a couple of reasons. For one, the Tigers aren't itching to trade their ace, and also the Tigers want a big return for a player that hasn't been at his best and has a big contract to Billy Hamilton Jersey be paid out in coming seasons.Teams aren't jumping on the bandwagon to trade for that kind of baggage, but the po sibility of adding an ace at the deadline is always an option for teams and considering the fact Verlander is a former Cy Young winner and the 2016 runner-up for the award, teams are going to inquire if he's available.Right now the consensusis Verlander will not move, but several pitching-hungry teams, including the Yankees, Astros, Diamondbacks, Rockies, Dodgers and Nationals,are looking for help on the mound. And the Tigers knowthat. That's why they reportedly have not shut down discu sions on their ace, according to MLB.com.Source says Tigers aren't actively shopping Adam Duvall Jersey Justin Verlander, but the perception is Detroit "could be talked into moving him" by July 31. Mark Feinsand (@Feinsand) July 12, 2017Any of the aformentioned teamscould useVerlander considering his track record as a starter, plus his playoff experience. But only a few of those teams have the depth in their minor leagues to make it happen.The Rockies, Diamondbacks and Nationals are probably out of the discu sion just based on the fact they can't give a ton back for Verlander. But the Astros, Yankees and Dodgers all have five or more Top 100 prospects according to MLB.com as well as great organizational depth.They can make a trade and not hamstring themselves for years to come. Maybe they can make a deal happen for Verlander, maybe not. But a pitcher will be traded at this https://www.redsedges.com/cincinnati-reds/ken-griffey-jersey deadline and probably for too much. Verlander may be just that guy.
