Segura and Trout Continue to Break Out

While the Halospshere suffered the poison of the Wells today, the two prospects in the Angels organization to whom Baseball Prospectus has given the vaunted five star rating continue to impress.

After a week or more of rain delays in Arkansas, the Travs finally split a double-header today with Tulsa, the top of which saw a Garrett Richards victory and Mike Trout slamming two doubles and a triple in a single game.

Meanwhile, Jean Segura persists in simply dominating Cal League pitching, and launched his first two HRs Wednesday night with the 66ers in a 17 hit onslaught against the Mavericks in High Desert. This was coupled with two stolen bases to give him eight bags on the young season. Segura, who turned 21 in March, has made the transition to shortstop effortlessly, with only a single error in the first 18 games.

Slash-lines after today:

Mike Trout: .305/.379/.627 
Jean Segura: .364/.417/.545

The Trout numbers are even more impressive given he's hitting better in nearly every category at home, in difficult Dickey-Stephens park.

Any bets as to when Jean Segura makes the jump to the next level and settle behind the golden fish at the top of the Travs lineup?
