“He is one-of-one when he gets in the cage,” DeRosa told Brian Kenny on a recent episode of “MLB Now.” “These guys pay homage to him. The ball comes off the bat different than the rest of them. I’ll take Mike Trout in my lineup. He’s 40 (home runs) and 100 (RBIs) in Fenway next year.”

The three-time American League MVP has struggled to stay on the field, playing in over 100 games just twice since 2019. Trout is also owed nearly $250 million over the remaining seven years of his contract.
