Trumbo feeling more comfortable at plate
ANAHEIM -- Angels slugger Mark Trumbo, relegated to the No. 8 spot due to his second-half slump, hasn't really seen the results yet, but he believes the last few games feel "more like my swing" at the plate.

These days, it's all about keeping things as simple as possible for Trumbo, who came into Wednesday with a .198/.250/.294 slash line over his last 51 games.

"If I'm anticipating a pitch, if I'm looking at a zone, I need to put that ball in play, and that's kind of my main focus right now," Trumbo said. "It's tough for a power hitter. You're expected to drive the ball, but sometimes you need to go all the way back and more or less start putting it in play a little more, and build back up to what you think you're capable of."
