Mike Trout not in starting lineup again due to calf strain
Mike Trout is not in the lineup for the Los Angeles Angels for the second day in a row due to his strained calf. He doesn’t seem too worried.
Trout exited Sunday’s game early with a calf strain and then missed Monday’s win over Houston due to the injury. An MRI revealed a small strain.
According to Angels reporter Jeff Fletcher, Trout says he is feeling better but sitting out due to a cautious approach by the team.
Mike Trout said he feels better today. He has hit the last two days. He said they are “just being cautious.” #Angels

The Angels have won four in a row. They swept the Seattle Mariners in their first series after the All-Star break and took Monday’s game against the Astros. They still trail Houston by 10 games for the AL West lead.
