ANAHEIM, Calif. – Mike Trout has landed on the 10-day disabled list with an inflamed right wrist, something the Los Angeles Angels had hoped to avoid.
The move announced Friday is retroactive to Monday, when Trout received a cortisone injection in his wrist. The two-time A.L. MVP has missed seven consecutive games, the second-longest injury absence of his big league career.
Trout hasn’t played since Aug. 1, when he hurt his wrist during a feet-first slide into third base in Tampa Bay.
Trout was out for 39 games last season after tearing a ligament in his left thumb in a headfirst slide.
Manager Mike Scioscia initially thought Trout would avoid the DL.
