Trout is the current MVP of the American League and one of baseball’s biggest stars | Quinn Harris / .
One of the most dominant figures in baseball in recent years is three-time MVP winner Mike Trout, who is one of the most prolific hitters of the most recent decade. The 28-year-old player highlighted in an interview what he considers to be the most intimidating pitcher he has ever faced: Max Scherzer.

Of course, this is not surprising, with both of them probably being the best players in their positions. In total, both have been seen in 16 innings, where the figure of the Angels has only connected three hits (one home run) and has taken 10 strikeouts.

Another peculiarity to denote their confrontations is that Scherzer has never yielded a base on a ball to Trout, who for several seasons has been the leader of the Major Leagues in this section.
“He was happy when he went to the National League and no longer had to face it like when he was in Detroit,” was stated by Trout, who since Scherzer’s move to the Nationals in 2015 has only faced him in one turn.
