Angels slugger Mike Trout is back in tonight’s lineup against the Astros after missing two games with left wrist inflammation.

Trout injured his wrist while attempting to make a diving catch on Sunday, but an MRI revealed no structural damage. According to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register, the 23-year-old was cleared to return after he hit off a tee without any issues. He’s starting in center field tonight as the Angels attempt to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Astros. The team is currently one game back of Houston in the AL West.

Trout leads the majors with 31 home runs and owns a .315/.405/.632 batting line over 97 games.
