Mike Trout is apparently feeling better

Mike Trout left Tuesday’s game with back discomfort and sat out on Wednesday, but he seems to be doing better.

Playing DH in last night’s game against the Astros Trout went 2 for 5 with a triple and an RBI double. On the season he’s hitting .295/.379/.557 with 39 RBI and five stolen bases. That’s a bit off from what he was doing last year — and he still leads the league in strikeouts – but the contending Angels will take a mild dropoff if it means he’s still in the lineup.
