Mike Trout injury update: Angels star hit on the wrist
Trainers checked out Trout and decided to remove him from the game. Thankfully, he is considered day-to-day.
Considering his injury record, the prospect of losing him to any long-term issue is a definite concern. Obviously, there’s nothing a team can do about a player getting hit by a pitch in the wrong spot but it would be a sign of pretty terrible luck if Trout has to miss any time over this one.
Trout played just 36 games last year as he battled injuries. This year he has hit two home runs but is battling just .250/.382/.536.
The team will update Trout’s status later on Sunday. For now, the only thing left to do is hope taking Trout out of the game was purely precautionary.
