MRI Results Regarding Mike Trout’s Hamstring Coined As ‘Clean’

Updated: May 8, 2017

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim received some relieving news today regarding 5-time All-Star Mike Trout. The Angels superstar had a MRI exam in order to further investigate the left hamstring tightness he’s been dealing with. In a recent post by ESPN the results are apparently “clean” according to what team GM Billy Eppler revealed.

Although Trout is feeling fine all in all, his status for tonight’s series opener in Oakland is questionable. In spite of that uncertainty, Trout said he expects to play tomorrow night no matter what. Thank heavens.

The Halos’ talented outfielder has missed three of the last four games due to this very issue. In his already storied career, he has only missed three consecutive games once. It comes to show just how durable Mike is and how well he takes care of his body. Thus, it is always surprising when he is sitting in the dugout instead of tracking down baseballs out in centerfield.

Eppler further explained to the media why he wanted the MRI to be executed in the first place. He told reporters that he essentially wanted the Angels to “have a thumbprint moving forward.” Nothing more, nothing less.

The reigning AL MVP is having yet another stellar campaign as the leader of the Angels. He has basically been responsible for keeping them relevant. He is currently tied for the AL lead in terms of his overall batting average at .355. Moreover, Trout has driven eight balls out of the yard already to go along with his 22 RBIs. The ballplayer also has five stolen bases up to this point in time.
