110 RBIs in the leadoff spot is an extremely difficult feat to achieve. That requires the majority of our 7-8-9 hitters to get on base, and seeing that none of them last year had an average > .250 or high OBP, it makes it hard for Trout to bring them home no matter how well he is hitting.
I think a realistic statline for Trout would be:
And though he is typically thought of a prototype leadoff hitter, I think he would excel much greater offensively in the 2nd spot of the lineup ahead of Albert. His runs scored could possibly decrease, but his RBI totals would increase (assuming we can get a stable leadoff hitter in that lead role).
