Off the Record (OTR)

Trout out 6-8 weeks

Even the best player in the entire world can get derailed by injury. And that’s exactly what happened to the ever-durable Los Angeles Angel of Anaheim (or whatever) outfielder on Monday night.

Trout slid into second base and his hand didn’t land correctly. Apparently, it screwed his thumb up pretty good and he’s going to miss significant time.

“#Angels CF Mike Trout will undergo surgery to repair torn ligament in left thumb on Wednesday. Out 6-8 weeks,” tweets Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times.

It’s a huge blow to the Angels because it seems like you have Trout and then everyone else. If it wasn’t for Trout, they might have the worst lineup in all of baseball and that includes the woeful Philadelphia Phillies.
