Angels phenom Mike Trout was at it again Saturday night in Anaheim, leading off a 6-1 victory over the Tigers with a home run then ending the game by robbing Prince Fielder at the center field wall.

The big fly was Trout’s 26th of the 2012 season and the home run-robbing grab was his fourth. The 21-year-old is now batting .329/.394/.568 with 111 runs scored, 44 stolen bases and 76 RBI in 536 plate appearances.

The Reds have signed outfielder Ben Revere to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports. Revere is expected to take home a salary between $1 million and $1.5 million if he makes the major league roster, Heyman adds.

Revere, 29, spent last season with the Angels. He batted a light .275/.308/.344 in 308 plate appearances. Revere does have some speed as he stole 21 bases last year.

Revere will try to earn a spot on the roster as a backup outfielder. The Reds’ starting spots are spoken for with Adam Duvall, Billy Hamilton, and Scott Schebler.
