What Will Harper and Trout Do for an Encore?
Neither Trout nor Harper appeared on an Opening Day roster last year. In fact, they made their season debuts on the same Saturday in late April. But now they must prepare for something they’ve never experienced before — a full season in the major leagues. Certainly, they have the talent to avoid sophomore jinxes. But it’s never that simple. Both will be pitched differently this year — particularly Trout, who won’t have Torii Hunter hitting behind him anymore.
