Outfielder Mike Trout won’t participate in the 2017 All-Star Game, the Angels announced on Monday. That doesn’t exactly come as a surprise as he has been out since the end of May with a torn UCL in his left thumb.
Trout was voted in as a starter in the American League All-Star lineup. Prior to hitting the disabled list, he was hitting an absurd .337/.461/.742 with 16 home runs, 36 RBI, 36 runs scored, and 10 stolen bases in 206 plate appearances.
The Angels noted that Trout will report to Single-A Inland Empire for a rehab assignment. If he avoids any setbacks, Trout could be activated for the beginning of the second half.
