Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper isn’t the only youngster drawing attention this weekend.
Mike Trout, who was brought up by the Angels in 2011 but appeared in only 40 games, made his 2012 major league debut in the Angels’ 2-1 win over the Indians on Saturday afternoon in Cleveland.
Trout finished 0-for-4 with a strikeout, but the Halos rode a superb outing by right-hander Dan Haren and an RBI apiece from Kendrys Morales and Torii Hunter to their first first victory in six games.
Anaheim now stands 7-14 on the year, 8 1/2 games behind the American League West-leading Rangers.
Trout was batting .403/.467/.623 in 93 plate appearances at Triple-A Salt Lake before his late-Friday promotion.
