Mike Trout reaches 30 home runs for the fourth time in his career, which makes you wonder what his final total could have been without his DL stint. His 30 home runs in 109 games projects to 43 homers over 155 games. The injury also means Trout will likely finish out of the top two in the MVP voting for the first time in his career.
