Mike Trout surgery

Los Angeles Angels’ all-star center fielder, Mike Trout, underwent surgery on his fractured left wrist on Wednesday, a result of an injury he sustained two days prior from fouling off a pitch.

Following the procedure, Angels’ manager, Phil Nevin, shared that Trout is feeling great. “We’ve just spoken with Mike, he’s fresh out of surgery. The operation was successful according to the doctor, and Mike seems to be doing well,” Nevin reported before the conclusion of the Angels’ series against the San Diego Padres.

In related news, two-way All-Star Shohei Ohtani featured in Wednesday’s lineup as a designated hitter, despite being removed from Tuesday’s game in the sixth inning due to a blister on his middle finger. Ohtani made it clear he doesn’t intend to pitch in the upcoming All-Star Game in Seattle next week, leaving his role as the American League’s designated hitter in question.

There is no set timeframe for Trout’s recovery, which typically spans several weeks.

“We’ll need to wait and see how Mike’s hand reacts once he starts his treatments and rehabilitation,” Nevin shared. “I know he’s eager to get started. He was relieved that he could have the surgery promptly to expedite his return to the team.”

Trout was leading off the eighth inning Monday night when he fouled off a 0-1 pitch from Nick Martinez, causing him to immediately shake his left arm. Nevin and a trainer swiftly attended to the slugger, who subsequently exited the game.

Three-time AL MVP, Trout, was recently chosen for his 11th All-Star team on Sunday, marking his 10th consecutive year as a starter. Currently, he boasts a .263 batting average, with 18 home runs and 44 RBIs to his name.
