Superstar center fielder Mike Trout has suffered a minor strain in his right calf, and will be evaluated on a day-to-day basis, the team announced on Monday.
The news comes after the All-Star left the game on Sunday against the Seattle Mariners after feeling tightness in the muscle. The injury didn’t appear to occur on any particular play, so it’s unclear exactly how he was hurt.
Trout’s injury comes at a time when he is finding his stride after a moderate start to the season.
In 90 games and 402 plate appearances, Trout is hitting .305 /455 /.666/1.121. With 30 home runs and 75 RBI. He’s in the conversation for his third career American League MVP Award as well as his seventh Silver Slugger.
The Angels enter Monday night tilt with a 48-46 record, 11 games back of the Houston Astros.
