Trout out of lineup with hamstring injury

UPDATE, 4:55 PM PT: Trout said he’s feeling “a lot better” but the hamstring is still “a little sore.”

Trout did not get an MRI.

“I wanted to play, but I don’t need to push it. No grabbing today. It was grabbing a little bit yesterday, but today nothing.”

——-

Not surprisingly, Angels outfielder Mike Trout was out of the Angels lineup for Monday’s series opener against the Indians, one day after exiting with tightness in his right hamstring.

Trout suffered the injury while legging out a double in the third inning of Sunday’s 7-5 loss to the Astros. He later scored on a single from Mark Trumbo, then flied out in the bottom of the fifth and was replaced by Kole Calhoun to start the sixth. Afterwards, Trout didn’t deem the injury serious.

“I just didn’t want it to get worse,” he said. “Didn’t want to push it too much.”

The only other time Trout missed a game this season was on June 30. That was also a tight right hamstring — and also against the Astros, in Houston — but Trout said Sunday that the two are unrelated.

Here’s the full lineup …

J.B. Shuck, DH
Erick Aybar, SS
Josh Hamilton, LF
Mark Trumbo, 1B
Hank Conger, C
Chris Nelson, 3B
Kole Calhoun, RF
Grant Green, 2B
Peter Bourjos, CF

SP: RH Jered Weaver

You’re missing the starting RF

We’ve been missing a decent starter in RF all year. Maybe Gonzo is editorializing?
