Tim_240 Former Angels greats Tim Salmon and Chuck Finley joined camp as guest instructors Monday.

Salmon, the former star outfielder and 1993 American League rookie of the year, was looking forward to meeting Angels minor leaguer Mike Trout, the 19-year-old center fielder who is widely regarded as the top prospect in baseball.

“I’m Fish,” Salmon said, invoking his nickname as a player, “so who is he?”

Among some of the suggestions for Trout’s nickname, as submitted by fans on Twitter: “Lil’ Fish” and “Caviar.”
