Isn't 250 the rookie cutoff?
Quote from: MLB Rules and Regulations
Determining rookie status:
A player shall be considered a rookie unless, during a previous season or seasons, he has (a) exceeded 130 at-bats or 50 innings pitched in the Major Leagues; or (b) accumulated more than 45 days on the active roster of a Major League club or clubs during the period of 25-player limit (excluding time in the military service and time on the disabled list).
So, nope.  Note that Trout is not a rookie by these criteria :P
