Mike Trout has been a superstar ever since he came up to the big leagues in July of 2011.
The Los Angeles Angels‘ slugger has been at it for some time now, having won three American League MVP Awards, a Rookie of the Year Award, and eight Silver Sluggers.
In addition to that, he’s been an All-Star 10 times.
But beyond his ability to hit some tape-measure home runs, he’s an on-base machine, and has been for the vast majority of his career.
After 5,000 career MLB at-bats, Trout has quite an unbelievable OPS.
According to MLB insider Jeremy Frank, that OPS sits right at 1.000.
Mike Trout has a career OPS of 1.000000 after 5,000 career at bats.

Mike Trout: On-Base Machine
This is quite impressive.
Trout has been in the league since 2011 and has put up some pretty amazing numbers.
For a while, he was arguably the best player in all of baseball.
He’s still fully capable of putting up MVP-type numbers.
But the fact that his OPS is so high after 5,000 at-bats is nothing short of amazing.
12 years into his Major League career, he’s still getting on base and slugging home runs.
This season, he’s hit 30 homers and has an OPS of .968.
There’s really nothing a guy like Trout can’t do at the plate.
But even through some injury struggles, Trout has been an elite baseball player who has put up some Hall of Fame-worthy numbers.
The injuries haven’t slowed him down and he has continued to be one of the best players in all of baseball.
Trout can do it all and is a perfect piece for the Angels to try and build around in the future.
His power and his ability to get on base truly set him apart from other players in MLB.
