Every year, there are players who don't just rise up prospect rankings lists -- they rocket up them. Los Angeles Angels outfield prospect Mike Trout is one of those players this season.

He didn't exactly come out of nowhere, and I did write about him twice last year. When the Angels took him 25th overall in last season's draft, I wrote that "more than one scout had Trout ranked as a 60 or higher on the 20-80 scale on their draft boards, which is a player who can make multiple All-Star teams."
