Mike Trout does not seem concerned about groin injury
Mike Trout was forced to leave Tuesday night’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers in the second inning after he suffered a groin injury, but it does not sound like he is expected to miss significant time.
Trout, who injured his groin running to second on a fielder’s choice, left the game in the fourth and the Angels announced he should be considered day-to-day. After the Los Angeles won 11-8, Trout downplayed the severity of the ailment.
Trout downplayed the severity of this injury also. He didn’t need an MRI. Sounds like tomorrow and the off-day Thursday will be all he needs.

Considering Trout remained in the game for another inning and looked to be in good spirits after he was removed, it’s no surprise he isn’t concerned about the groin tweak. The star outfielder is off to a hot start with a .406 batting averaging and .938 slugging percentage, so the Angels will want him back in the lineup as quickly as possible.
