An MRI and X-ray on the left wrist of Los Angeles Angels centerfielder Mike Trout came back negative and showed no structural damage
Trout was injured when he attempted to make a diving catch in the fourth inning of a 13-7 victory over the Texas Rangers on Sunday. Trout stayed in the game and hit a grand slam two innings later.
The team considers Trout day-to-day, and he did not play in Tuesday's loss to the Houston Astros.
He was replaced in the lineup by Daniel Robertson, who went 1 for 4 on Tuesday. Angels manager Mike Scioscia says Trout could be back in the lineup against Houston on Wednesday.
"It was bothering me pretty bad," Trout said, according to MLB.com. "The MRI was probably the best it could be. I have to take the positives away from that.
"It felt good, even when I got home [after Sunday's game]," Trout added. "I iced it. When I woke up the next morning, it was a little sore. I came in and got treatment yesterday and today. It was a little sore. Nothing too crazy. When I started swinging, that's when it was aching a little bit."
While Trout says the soreness is gone from the wrist, he will test out the injury when he attempts to swing a bat.
Trout, the reigning American League Most Valuable Player, leads the majors with 31 home runs and 75 runs scored. He is hitting .315 and has driven in 64 runs for the Angels, who are tied for the AL West lead with the Astros.
