Justin Verlander
Note: given a league-wide OPS of ~.750, the closer the line gets to a player, the more ownage. Min of 5 PA in a season to qualify.

With a lowly career OPS of just 0.539, Trout has thoroughly and consistently been dominated by Verlander. It doesn't happen often with Trout (especially for such an extended period). Chalk it up to having a guy's number (and keeping it).
