Meet the Angels infielder who has surprisingly out-homered Mike Trout

The 2019 season has provided plenty of surprises so far. None of them bigger than the unexpected power surge that’s taking place on the Los Angeles Angels infield.

Nearly one month into the season, it’s not Mike Trout who sits atop the Angels home run leaderboard. With his two-run home run during Thursday’s game against the New York Yankees, that distinction belongs to Tommy La Stella.

Yes, that Tommy La Stella.

Mind you, when your record is essentially the same as the Orioles, does that really mean anything?
