Mike Trout Expected To Miss 6-8 Weeks With Thumb Injury

Mike Trout Expected To Miss 6-8 Weeks With Thumb Injury

An MRI revealed the injury Monday. He had surgery and was out slightly over five weeks. Trout was once again off to a fantastic start, hitting.337/.461/.742, with 16 home runs, over 206 plate appearances.

The Angels confirmed centre fielder Trout is headed to the disabled list for the first time in his Major League Baseball career following an MRI on Monday. The 31-year-old is on pace to strike out more than 250 times, which is unacceptable. An operation likely would sideline him five to eight weeks, Angeles general manager Bill Eppler said. "You either go to first base or you go after him and I chose to go after him".

"I felt pretty good tonight", Teheran said. Trout, a two-time American League MVP, was enjoying another incredible season in 2017.

In a corresponding move, the Dodgers selected the contract of right-hander Brandon Morrow from Triple-A Oklahoma City. Nolasco has not won since April 27. Overall, Morrow is 0-5 with six saves and a 5.71 ERA.

Cespedes has been on the DL since April 28 with a strained left hamstring.

Drew, 34, suffered the injury while running out a ground ball on April 11 against the St. Louis Cardinals after his cleat caught in the dirt near the batter's box. "But as a whole, one through nine, we're going to have to". The home runs will be there at the end of the season, but if Davis is going to hit for a low average and not drive in a ton of runs, it doesn't matter how many home runs he hits, he is not helping fantasy owners.

Willie Stargell split the 1979 NL MVP award with Keith Hernandez after batting.281 with a.904 OPS (39 percent above league average) in just 126 games played, and the minimum playing time for an AL MVP victor since the expansion of 1969 was George Brett, who flirted with a.400 average (.390) over 117 games played.

He is, not surprisingly, already leading baseball with a 3.6 fWAR.

Ban second base, in other words. The rookie allowed five runs on six hits and left after two singles to lead off the bottom of the sixth inning.

Trainers came out to take a look at Trout, but he stayed in the game at first.

Now, sadly, the baseball world will need to wait to determine whether Trout was simply playing the best baseball of his life for those two months or whether he's now playing the best baseball of anyone's life.
