Angels change plans, promote Mike Trout 

July, 8, 2011
The Los Angeles Angels have purchased the contract of 19-year-old outfielder Mike Trout, one of the top prospects in baseball. Trout, called up from Double-A Arkansas, is expected to arrive in time Friday to play in Anaheim against the Seattle Mariners.

Peter Bourjos, the Halos' soon-to-be Gold Glove center fielder, strained his right hamstring in Thursday's game against Seattle. He is expected to be out at least through the All-Star break.
