Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim’s Mike Trout has been ruled out of the All-Star Game due to a fracture injury.
Trout was removed from the lineup during the Angels’ 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) game against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park in San Diego, California, on April 4 (ET). After fouling off a pitch in the eighth inning, Trout waved his left arm in pain and did not finish the at-bat.
A medical examination revealed the worst: a fracture. “The Angels were dealt a major blow when superstar Trout was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured left metacarpal,” MLB.com reported on Friday.스포츠토토
“Trout is expected to miss four to eight weeks. That means he won’t be back until at least early August or September.”
“I’ve reached out to people who’ve had surgery or been injured before,” Trout told MLB.com, “and some have been back in four weeks, some have taken longer. We’ll see how it goes.”
The injury denied Trout his 11th career All-Star Game appearance. “It’s tough,” said Trout, who was voted to the All-Star team by the fans. I was really looking forward to this All-Star Game. It’s frustrating,” he said. The All-Star Game will be held on June 12 in Seattle.
After Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw was placed on the disabled list with shoulder soreness on the fourth of this month, Trout’s absence from the All-Star Game has been a disappointment for fans who have been waiting for the game.
Trout had been leading the Angels’ batting order alongside Shohei Ohtani. In 81 games this season, he hit .263 with 18 home runs, 44 RBIs, and an OPS of .862. In his last 15 games, he has been on fire, batting .333 with four home runs, seven RBIs, nine walks and a 1.086 OPS.
