XVAL™ Player of the Week – Mike Trout

Posted by
/

The Los Angeles Angels’ center fielder Mike Trout is at it again.  After skyrocketing to the top of the XVAL rankings in 2012, Trout’s performance last week significantly contributed to creating the same result with the 2013 XVAL rankings.  At the conclusion of last week, Trout was leading all MLB players in WAR at 6.45 for the season.  Trout’s amazing production combined with his salary of ‘just’ $510,000 has resulted in the amount of his XVAL (excess value produced) to pile up to over $19M thus far this season.  As you will see in the infographic below, Trout produced over $2.6M in XVAL just last week.
