A video of Los Angeles Angels centerfielder Mike Trout watching a montage of highlights will open the TV coverage of Monday night’s MLB draft.
Coverage of the draft will begin on MLB Network at 7 p.m. ET. The video features Trout’s 3-year-old nephew watching Trout’s old highlights and also shows Trout himself doing the same.
The defending American League MVP is off to a strong start this season. Through 57 games, Trout is batting .283 with 16 home runs, 33 RBIs and a .934 OPS.
The Angels drafted Trout 25th in the 2009 MLB draft out of Millville Senior High School in Millville, N.J. Trout made his major-league debut on July 8, 2011 against the Seattle Mariners.
