Mike Trout Returns to Angels Lineup After Injury Break, Sits Out Doubleheader Game Next Day

Angels' Star Player Makes Comeback, Showing Initial Performance, but Sits Out Following Doubleheader

Mike Trout made his eagerly awaited return to the Los Angeles Angels’ lineup on Tuesday, notching a 1-for-4 record in his first game since July 3. The baseball star’s absence of around seven weeks had been due to a fractured hamate bone. Remarkably, Trout managed to make his comeback without undergoing any rehabilitation assignments.

However, a swift turn of events ensued. On Wednesday, following a postponed game from Hurricane Hilary’s repercussions, the Angels and the Reds were set for a doubleheader. Curiously, in the opening match of this dual encounter, Trout was notably absent from the lineup.

Reportedly, Trout experienced soreness after his reappearance on the field following seven weeks of hiatus – an outcome that aligns logically with his circumstances. On a more positive note, Angels’ manager Phil Nevin reassured that this soreness was not a cause for concern. Given the extended period of inactivity, some degree of discomfort was expected. The bigger question loomed: would Trout participate in the second game of the doubleheader? Anticipation remained high for his potential involvement in the series finale.

The slated start time for the aforementioned game was 6:38 p.m. PT, and all eyes were on whether Trout would rejoin the lineup for this crucial match.
