Mike Trout has stolen 30 bases in 2012, making him one of just six rookies in Angels history to reach 30 steals and the first since Chad Curtis, who posted 43 steals in 1992. It took Trout just 66 games to accomplish the feat, and he'll have a chance to break the club's rookie record for steals in a season, which was set in 1984 when Gary Pettis stole 48 bags. Mark Trumbo is batting .305 (53-for-174) with 19 home runs and 43 RBIs since May 25. Trumbo leads the Angels with 25 homers and 62 RBIs in 2012. He's just five home runs away from becoming the first Angels player to go yard 30 times in a season since Kendrys Morales hit the mark in 2009. In two plate appearances against Turner, Trumbo is 0-for-2 with a couple of strikeouts. The Angels optioned third baseman Andrew Romine to Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday night to make room for Richards.
Tigers: Cabrera approaching homer milestone
Miguel Cabrera is batting .358 (87-for-243) with 22 doubles, 13 home runs and 52 RBIs over his last 60 games, dating back to May 10. He has 297 career home runs, needing three more to join Andres Galarraga as the only Venezuelan-born players to hit 300 big flies.
Albert Pujols is batting .478 (22-for-46) with four home runs and eight RBIs in 14 career games against the Tigers. In 55 career games against the Angels, Jhonny Peralta has hit .322 (66-for-205) with nine home runs and 31 RBIs.
