THE OTHER PHENOM
The 20-year-old Angels outfielder leads the American League in hitting (.357) and stolen bases (31) and is starting to steal some of the limelight from fellow rookie Bryce Harper.
Toughest pitcher you've faced?
MIKE TROUT: Hmm. [Long pause.] That's hard.
Is hitting that easy for you that you don't have one?
MT: When I first faced [Yu] Darvish, he had some pretty good stuff. He had 12 pitches, none of them were straight.
Have you asked your idol, Derek Jeter, for an autograph yet?
MT: Yeah, I got a couple from him.
When did you approach him?
