From Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register comes word that Angels outfielder Mike Trout had to make an early exit from Wednesday afternoon’s game against the A’s because of a stomach bug.
Trout was 1-for-2 with a stolen base and a run scored before the Angels had Grant Green pinch-hit for him in the top of the fifth inning. In the bottom of that frame, Tony Campana took over in center field.
The Angels have a scheduled team off day on Thursday, which should give Trout ample rest leading into the final weekend of the regular season.
The likely 2014 American League MVP is batting .290/.380/.563 with 35 home runs, 110 RBI, 16 stolen bases, and 114 runs scored through 154 games played this season for the American League West champions.
