The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim played the series closer against the Houston Astros today. The team is already suffering from a lot of various injuries, and Mike Trout sat out for this game. Jeff Flecther from the OC Register was able to get a quote from Trout about the situation.
“On Sunday, Trout was out of the lineup for the second day in a row, and third time in the last four games, resting a tight left hamstring.”
“‘Have to be smart about it,’ Trout said. ‘I figure we take today and yesterday and see how it feels in Oakland (on Monday)… I’m going to come to the field tomorrow ready to play and see how it feels.’”
“Trout sat out Thursday’s game and played on Friday. He was in the lineup on Saturday, but scratched at the last minute because it tightened up on him during pregame warmups. The decision to rest Trout was made before he even arrived at the ballpark on Sunday morning.”
