Mike Trout Think First-Time PED Users Should Be Banned for Life

"To me, personally, I think you should be out of the game if you get caught," Trout told WFAN. "It takes away from the guys that are working hard every day and doing it all-natural."

On Monday, the Angels opened up a series against the New York Yankees. Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez has been at the center of the Biogenesis controversy and he's appealing his 211-game suspension. He's still allowed to play for the team.

"Some people just are trying to find that extra edge," Trout added. "It's tough as a guy that goes out there and plays hard every day and puts [in] 110 percent effort ... to wake up, see there's a list of guys that are on the list. It's good that MLB caught them and they're moving in the right direction with suspensions and stuff."

Trout was the American League runner-up for the MVP Award in his rookie season. This year he's been just as good, batting .330 with 20 home runs and 73 RBIs.
