Mike Trout, Outfielder, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
Even though he hasn’t been in the MLB long, the New Jersey native is already one of the greatest young players in the history of baseball. In his first four seasons in the bigs, Trout was been named AL MVP once and was runner-up the other three years. Even those difficult-to-please sabermetricians are in love with him; he led the majors in wins above replacement (WAR) in each of his first three seasons. But while he may be the next Mickey Mantle, he takes a lot better care of his body. Trout regularly completes 50-inch box jumps while holding weight plates, along with sprints and core work. During the offseason, he hits the gym 90 minutes a day, six days a week. And we all know he relies on a steady diet of Subway sandwiches, which can be pretty healthy provided you don’t load up your turkey foot-long with mayo. And oh yeah, Trout was so excited to start the 2017 season, he was spotted running was a huge barbell on his back to train.
