Add Los Angeles Angels phenom Mike Trout to the list of ballplayers who think there should be stricter penalties for those who get caught using performance-enhancing drugs.

"To me, personally I think you should be out of the game if you get caught. It takes away from the guys that are working hard every day and doing it all-natural," Trout told Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton on WFAN in New York on Monday. "It's tough as a guy that goes out there and plays hard every day and puts 110 percent effort every time and then you wake up the next day and 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."

Several MLB players have voiced their support for tougher penalties for PED-users after the league suspended 13 last week, including Alex Rodriguez.

12 players accepted 50-game bans while A-Rod is appealing a 211-game suspension for their connections to Biogenesis, a clinic in Florida accused of peddling PEDs.
