Angels superstar center fielder Mike Trout was removed from Tuesday’s game against the Astros due to lingering stiffness in the middle of his back and he is not in Anaheim’s starting lineup on Wednesday night. But the situation is looking up.
MLB.com’s Alden Gonzalez reports that Trout underwent an MRI on Wednesday which showed only inflammation and no structural damage. “It’s definitely good news,” Trout told Gonzalez. “I’ll see how I feel tomorrow. Maybe I’ll go tomorrow.”
Josh Hamilton will start in center field Wednesday in his second game back from the disabled list.
Trout is batting .293/.379/.546 with 11 homers, 38 RBI, and five steals in 54 games this year.
