Quote: “It’s starting to develop,” manager Mike Scioscia said of Trout’s power in a story on the Angels’ website. “I don’t think we need to make too much of it. I think you’re seeing a guy who has the potential to drive the ball like he does. He’s just been doing it with frequency that he thought he eventually would get to. But this guy, I mean, he’s a hitter with power. And I think his (opposite-field) power is a difference-maker.”
