Reveille 8/12/13

Good morning. 

Here are several links from the past week that will make your Monday a bit more bearable:

Trout is seeing fewer pitches in the zone this year (49 percent going into Tuesday’s game, down from 51.1 percent last year), which is likely contributing to the spike in his walk rate. But he has also been far more selective, chasing just 24.6 percent of the pitches he’s seen below the strike zone this year, well below his rate of 30.6 percent last year.

That’s it. Have a walk-off week!
