Albert Pujols was initially going to get a night off Tuesday against the visiting Twins, but the Angels didn’t want to play a game against a contending team with a combined 57 home runs sitting on the bench.
Trout, 23, is batting .307/.400/.614 with 28 homers and 57 RBI in 92 games this season for the Halos, who have won five straight games and 15 of their last 18. Trout is second in fWAR behind only Bryce Harper.
Daniel Robertson will start in center field and bat ninth on Tuesday night vs. Minnesota’s Kyle Gibson.
