ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Angels star Mike Trout exited Monday night’s game against Cleveland after the first inning because of a strained right calf.
The outfielder was limping after running to third on an inning-ending popup. Los Angeles manager Joe Maddon said after his team’s 7-4 victory that Trout was undergoing further evaluation, including an MRI, and the Angels will know more on Tuesday.
“I saw nothing. I looked up and he was limping to the third base bag,” Maddon said. “It was kind of innocuous and I had no idea why. It was hurting him pretty good.”
The three-time MVP entered the day sixth in the American League with a .333 batting average, but was 1 for 17 in his past six games. He snapped a five-game hitless streak Sunday at Boston, which was one game shy of the longest of his career.
