Mike Trout sprains thumb diving into second, leaves game at Miami

Sunday May 28th, 2017

MIAMI (AP) — Los Angeles Angels star Mike Trout sprained his left thumb stealing a base and left Sunday's game against the Marlins.

There was no immediate word on whether Trout would miss more time. X-rays were negative Sunday.

Trout yelled in pain as he rose after sliding headfirst in the fifth inning against the Miami Marlins. He was examined by a trainer, stayed in the game and took the field in the bottom of the inning, but was replaced in the sixth.

Trout, the reigning American League MVP, was 0 for 2 when he departed. He finished 2 for 9 in the series to drop his average to .337. He has 16 home runs, tied for the major league lead with Aaron Judge of the Yankees.
