Mike Trout is on the worst streak of his entire career

And the Angels are really struggling without his productivity

Right now, the Los Angeles Angels have lost three straight games and their bats aren't really going hot at this moment, with their main sluggers having hit really poorly in recent games.

But something that is really, really rare to see is Mike Trout having a tough time on the plate, as he is currently on the worst hitting streak of his entire career, as he hasn't recorded a single hit on his last 19 at-bats.

 

His last hit was on May 11, and his batting average dropped to under .300 for the first time in the season, as it currently stands at .290.

The super slugger had his say after  Thursday's 7-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays and spoke with Maria Guardado of MLB.com:

It's just timing, I'm just late right now. Obviously, my results aren't there, but my last at-bat felt better, so work off that.

 

So, it is no coincidence that with Trout's current woes, the Angels are finding it hard to fight back this bad streak, as his best player is not delivering right now as everybody expects him to do it. However, they're not too far from the AL West divisional leaders, the Houston Astros, as they're only behind them by 2.5 games.
