Hit King Wonders Why Mike Trout Strikes Out So Much

Pete Rose has a question about Mike Trout‘s offense:

Here’s a look at Trout’s strikeout totals:

Year Age Tm G PA H HR RBI BB SO BA OBP SLG OPS
2011 19 LAA 40 135 27 5 16 9 30 .220 .281 .390 .672
2012 ★ 20 LAA 139 639 182 30 83 67 139 .326 .399 .564 .963
2013 ★ 21 LAA 157 716 190 27 97 110 136 .323 .432 .557 .988
2014 ★ 22 LAA 157 705 173 36 111 83 184 .287 .377 .561 .939
4 Yrs 493 2195 572 98 307 269 489 .305 .395 .549 .945
162 Game Avg. 162 721 188 32 101 88 161 .305 .395 .549 .945

I don’t think Rose was being rude by the question. Absent watching Trout play a lot, he probably genuinely wondered why he struck out so much.

Just for fun, here’s a look at Rose’s totals for his first four seasons:
