Trout has done it for 89 games, Miguel Cabrera has done it for 10 years.
Also....Trout hasn't missed 1/3 of the season.
He was called up on April 28th. He probably missed 15 to 20 games total.
Kid is a special talent, but it doesn't negate the fact that Miguel Cabrera is having an awesome year as well.
No one is comparing a career. Cabrera is one of the best , NL or AL as he has proven. We are speaking of this year. Trout missed a month of games. We started around the 1st and I don't believe he started the first few games as Bourjos, Trumbo and Hunter were in the outfield.
