ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Los Angeles Angels star Mike Trout missed Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays because of a bruised right wrist.
Trout got hurt while sliding during a stolen base attempt of third in the first inning of Wednesday night's 7-2 defeat to the Rays.
"When I slid into third base, I caught my hand," Trout said. "Kind of weird. Felt like I just jammed it pretty bad. We taped it and tried to do as much as we could during the game yesterday. But when I woke up it was pretty sore."
Trout had X-rays on Wednesday and an MRI was planned for Thursday.
"I didn't really feel it at the plate, but on deck warming up I could feel it with the weight of the bat," he said.
Angels manager Mike Scoiscia said Trout underwent treatment Thursday's game and was not available.
Los Angeles opens a three-game series Friday night at Cleveland.
"We'll take a look at it tomorrow and see what we have," Scioscia said.
A two-time AL MVP who turns 27 next week, Trout is hitting .309 with 30 homers, 60 RBIs and 21 stolen bases in 109 games.
