Mike Trout leaves game with lingering back injury

Jun 3, 2014, 9:20 PM EST

Angels outfielder Mike Trout sat out Saturday and Sunday in Oakland because of stiffness in his back. He tried to return for Tuesday’s series-opener in Houston, but that stiffness hasn’t gone away …

Trout struck out in his only at-bat and did not have a ball hit to him in his one inning in center field. It’s probably a good bet that he won’t play Wednesday, but there’s been no talk yet of a disabled stint.

Trout is batting .293/.379/.546 with 11 homers, 38 RBI, and five steals in 54 games this year.

The Angels got Josh Hamilton back from a two-month absence on Tuesday night.

    It’s hard to carry a team on your back.

    When are the Angels gonna realize their strength coach is a clown?

    Probably as soon as a random internet poster realizes injuries happen regardless
