Los Angeles Angels star outfielder and likely AL MVP Mike Trout missed Sunday’s game due to a right foot injury.
There were no further updates regarding Trout’s status over the weekend. The Angels changed that on Monday by announcing that Trout has undergone a cryoablation procedure to fix neuroma in his right foot. He’s considered day-to-day.
For those of you who are confused by words that make no sense in the injury update, join the club.
A simple search seems to indicate that this is not as severe as what some might think. It’s really about managing Trout’s pain as the season comes to a conclusion.
Even then, there has to be concern. We’re talking about the game’s best player and the only draw Los Angeles has as it closes up shop on yet another lost season. He’s been dealing with the pain for some time, too.
One has to wonder if the Angels are simply going shut Trout down at some point here soon.
The all-everything outfielder is hitting .291 while leading the American League in homers (45), walks (110), OBP (.438), slugging percentage (.645) and OPS (1.083).
Did we mention that he’s a pretty good ball player?
