Angels Chatter: Trout Sizzling, Blash Rejoins Halos

Mike Trout has opened May on quite a torrid stretch, even by his own lofty standards.

Trout went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run in the Angels' 8-2 win over the Mariners on Sunday at Safeco Field, finishing the weekend with his third consecutive three-hit game. The 26-year-old star center fielder is now batting .545 (12-for-22) with three doubles, two triples, two home runs, six RBIs and eight walks over six games in May. He is hitting .336 with a 1.178 OPS on the season.

Seeking to give slumping Kole Calhoun a mental break, the Angels recalled outfielder Jabari Blash from Triple-A Salt Lake ahead of Sunday's series finale against the Mariners at Safeco Field. Right-handed reliever Eduardo Paredes was optioned to clear a roster spot for Blash, who made his Angels debut on Sunday starting in right field against Mariners ace Felix Hernandez.
