08:14 AM ET 02.15 | Mike Trout heads into the 2013 season not only with a new position, but also in a new weight class. On Thursday, shortly after getting his physical exam, the 21-year-old leadoff hitter, and new left fielder, came in about 10 pounds heavier, at 240. It was a stark difference from last spring, when a nasty virus prompted Trout to lose more than 10 pounds. "You know, my weight fluctuates," Trout said. "During the course of Spring Training, I'll lose probably five to 10 pounds. So, where I need to be to start the year, I felt like coming in heavier and then getting down my weight to start the year. I know where I need to be." Asked if he expected it to alter his all-out, aggressive playing style, Trout said: "Nah. I feel great."

10 pounds on somebody that already weighs 230 is a "stark difference"????? How stupid.

The reporter must not remember when he was a young man and could shed 10 to 15 pounds during the summer months with little effort.

Let the PED talk begin.

they don't say in the article whether of not it's good weight (muscle) or bad weight (fat). Even if it is fat, I'm sure he'll lose that by the end of March.

I suppose. I feel though that everyone is innocent until proven guilty. But baseball definitely has a stain on it. But don't all sports?
