Really, really bad news for the Angels on Monday.

Star outfielder Mike Trout will miss time after being diagnosed with a torn ligament in his left thumb, Angels general manager Billy Eppler said.

Later on Monday, the team announced Trout would undergo surgery on his UCL and miss 6-8 weeks.


Trout has never been on the disabled list in his entire seven-year MLB career before being added to the 10-day DL on Monday.

On the season, Trout is batting .337 with 16 home runs and 36 RBI.
