Trout is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.
He'll check out of the starting nine for the first time since July 17, when he was tending to a right calf strain. Trout's absence this time around looks to be little more than a matter of maintenance amid the Angels' heavy schedule of 15 games in 14 days. Brian Goodwin will spell Trout in center field and serve as the Halos' leadoff man.
Trout went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 7-2 loss to the White Sox.
The center fielder's 422-foot blast off White Sox starter Lucas Giolito in the fifth inning cut the score to 3-2, but the Angels never scraped together a tying run. Trout's 41st homer of the year matches his previous career high from 2015 and keeps him tied with the Dodgers' Cody Bellinger, who also went yard Friday, for the major-league lead. Trout also has a .298/.444/.668 slash line with 94 RBI and 98 runs scored in 117 games this season.
Trout went 4-for-4 with a home run, three more runs scored and a walk in Thursday's 8-7 win over the White Sox.
After hitting an infield single and scoring in the first inning, Trout launched a 419-foot solo homer off Reynaldo Lopez in the third. The All-Star outfielder ended up reaching in all five plate appearances en route to his 40th long ball of the season, netting the 40-homer mark for the second time in his career. Trout is now tied with Cody Bellinger for the major league lead in home runs this season and remains just one shy of tying his career-best of 41 set in 2015.
Trout went 1-for-3 with a home run, three RBI and two runs in a 12-4 victory over the Red Sox on Saturday.
The 28-year-old may be putting together his best statistical season, which is really saying something. Trout is just two homers shy of his previous career best and could easily reach 50 this season. He should also accumulate 100 runs and 100 RBI with ease before the end of August. Trout is batting .299 with a .673 slugging percentage, 39 home runs, 92 RBI, 91 runs and nine steals in 391 at-bats this season.
Trout went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a stolen base and a walk Monday night against the Reds.
Trout cranked a solo homer to left field in the sixth inning, but it wasn't enough offense to lift his team to victory. He has now left the yard in three of his last five matchups, putting him two homers behind Christian Yelich, who leads the majors with 39 home runs.
