Angels center fielder Mike Trout went 4-for-4 with two homers and five RBI in Sunday’s series finale against the Rangers, but he also suffered a left wrist injury in that game when he tried to make a diving catch and he is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday’s series opener versus the Astros.
Trout will undergo a precautionary MRI, according to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times. For now, the 23-year-old stands as day-to-day.
Daniel Robertson is starting in center field and hitting ninth against Astros righty Collin McHugh.
Trout is on pace for 51 home runs. He is the runaway favorite for American League MVP, but you already knew that.
