Angels outfielder Mike Trout, absent for the last five days due to a groin injury, will rejoin the team ahead of a three-game series with the Rangers in Texas beginning on Monday, ESPN reports. Trout underwent an ultrasound, which the Angels said “showed further improvement.”
Trout exited last Tuesday’s game against the Brewers in the fourth inning with the injury. He appeared to sustain the injury running the bases in the second inning after an infield single.
It’s not clear yet if Trout will actually participate in Monday’s game, but he appears to have avoided a stint on the 10-day injured list. Trout was off to a torrid start prior to the groin injury, batting .406/.592/1.529 with five home runs, 12 RBI, eight runs scored, a stolen base, and 13 walks in 49 plate appearances.
