MRI shows Mike Trout has small calf strain
Mike Trout has been diagnosed with a small calf strain and is day-to-day, the Los Angeles Angels announced on Monday.
Trout underwent an MRI earlier in the day for a calf strain that caused him to leave Sunday’s game. Trout said at the time that the injury was not serious, but the team still removed him and had him undergo testing as a precaution.
The testing showed pretty much with the Angels and Trout thought: the injury is minor.
Trout was not in the starting lineup for Monday night’s game against the Houston Astros. The leading AL MVP candidate is batting .305 with 30 home runs, 75 RBIs and a 1.121 OPS. He is in the middle of his best offensive season ever.
