Mike Trout day-to-day with calf tightness after early exit
Mike Trout briefly caused Los Angeles Angels fans to panic Sunday when he left the team’s game against the Seattle Mariners.
Trout left the game at the start of the third inning, with the Angels ultimately announcing that he was suffering from right calf tightness and is considered day-to-day.
Mike Trout was removed with right calf tightness. He’s day to day, as we all are. Exhale.

In other words, the Angels and their fans can breathe easy. It’s not ideal, but Trout’s injury does not appear serious.
Trout is hitting .306 with 30 home runs in what is, in many ways, the best offensive season of his career to date. The Angels, who are still on the fringes of the AL wild card race, could hardly afford to lose him for very long.
