The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim will be without their superstar outfielder Mike Trout at least for several weeks. Trout was injured in Sunday’s game against the Miami Marlins.
He has been diagnosed with a ulnar collateral ligament tear in his left thumb. He injured the thumb as he was sliding into second base on a head-first slide.
Trout may have to undergo surgery. At this moment, he’s expected to miss five-to-eight weeks, which will be after the Mid-Summer Classic when he’s able to return.
It’s believed, if he doesn’t undergo surgery, that he could return sooner. This is the first-time in his seven-year career that he’s landed on the disabled list.
The Angels may move Cameron Maybin to center field while Trout is out. Ben Revere may receive the majority of the time with Maybin moving over a position.
