Angels phenom Mike Trout doesn't play the game like a rookie, but he still is one.

On Thursday night, Trout (21 years, 16 days) became the youngest player since at least 1901 to record 40 steals and 20 homers in a season.

Trout swiped his 40th base in the third inning of a 14-13 win over the Red Sox at Fenway Park. Cesar Cedeno accomplished the feat in 1972 at 21 years, six months and one day.

The center fielder also leads the American League with a .345 average, 99 runs and 1.011 OPS.

"All those stats don't matter unless you reach the playoffs," Trout said. "But it's been pretty surreal."

Trout is in the midst of a rookie campaign for the ages. He leads all rookies this year with 24 homers, 72 RBIs and 45 walks.
