Mike Trout placed on 10-day DL with wrist injury
The Los Angeles Angels have placed Mike Trout on the disabled list due to his wrist injury.
Trout has not played since Aug. 1 due to his wrist and had a cortisone injection on Monday. Angels manager Mike Scioscia said during the week that Trout was improving and could be back in the lineup by Friday, but obviously that changed.
The Angels said that Trout is being placed on the DL retroactive to the 6th.
Mike Trout was placed on the 10-day DL (retro to 8/6) with right wrist inflammation.

The Angels were reluctant to place him on the DL initially for good reason — you don’t want to miss any more games of him than you have to. Eric Young Jr. has been playing center field for the .500 Angels.
