Mike Trout gets cortisone injection for problematic wrist
Mike Trout is taking another step this week to address his ailing right wrist.
The Los Angeles Angels released a statement on Monday saying that the star outfielder received a cortisone injection in the wrist as he is continuing to experience soreness after jamming it on a slide last week.
Today, the #Angels released the following medical update on centerfielder Mike Trout:
Mike Trout continues to experience soreness in his right wrist. He received a cortisone injection this morning and remains day to day.

The righty-hitting Trout, who is putting together yet another MVP-caliber season with a .309 batting average to go along with 30 home runs and 60 RBIs, has missed the team’s last four straight games with the injury.
We recently heard a somewhat concerning update about the wrist, so it’s worth wondering if a DL stint may be needed for the 26-year-old All-Star.
