OC Register: Mike Trout undergoes evaluation, but Angels still believe injury isn’t serious

6 posts in this topic

CHICAGO — While the Angels were at Wrigley Field to open a series against the Chicago Cubs, Mike Trout remained in Southern California to have his sore right groin evaluated.

Manager Brad Ausmus said the Angels still don’t believe Trout’s injury is serious enough to land him on the injured list. He added that Trout could even join the Angels in Chicago as soon as Saturday to play. Or he may just sit out the weekend in chilly Chicago and join the Angels on Monday in Texas.

“He’s going to get looked at again today and then we’ll make a decision as to whether he comes here tonight or whether he meets us in Texas,” Ausmus said Friday morning. “At this point we don’t expect it to be an injury where he’s required to go on the IL. It’s just a matter of how he feels and what the doctors think.”

Trout came out of Tuesday’s game with tightness in his right groin. He did not play on Wednesday, but he said he felt better.

“It didn’t get worse,” Ausmus said. “The plan all along was to have him see the doctor on Friday.”

The temperature in Chicago for Friday and Saturday is expected to be in the 50s, and even colder with a chance of rain or snow on Sunday. Cold weather is an issue for muscle injuries.

The Angels continue this trip on Monday in Texas, where the temperature is expected to be in the 70s.

Trout said on Wednesday that it made no sense to take any chances with this injury at this time of the year. He didn’t want to risk playing at less than 100 percent and suffering an injury that could have him out for months.

In Angels speak, that translates to June 1 at the earliest.
