Mike Trout (wrist) out of lineup for Angels

And especially when a team is struggling offensively, there's going to be some ways in which you're going to try to find some down. Unfortunately, he landed twice on his wrist pretty hard.

MARK GUBICZA: Yeah, the big thing is he was trying to time Glasnow there to see how many times he would look back toward second. You see him jam the wrist there initially. And then, again, when you put all that weight on that wrist, as he tries to stay close to the base just in case the tag was not applied.

There were a couple of at-bats later on in the game for Trout in which he popped up in the infield. He had some pretty good pitches to hit.
