Mike Trout’s Major League debut gave us a quick glimpse of the legend to come

The Angels took Trout 25th overall in the 2009 Draft, and he spent the next two years tearing up the Minor Leagues and becoming one of the most highly-touted prospects in baseball. On July 8, just a game back of the Rangers in the AL West, the team decided to call in the cavalry, starting the 19-year-old in center field and batting him ninth.

And people have been trying to trade him for prospects ever since.
