He’s out for the season

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – Los Angeles Angels star Mike Trout is officially closed for the season.

The three-time AL-MVP suffered a calf strain on May 17th and has not returned to the line-up since then. The original prognosis was six to eight weeks of rehabilitation, but the injury was worse than originally thought.

Trout tried to come back this season but recently made the decision that he is done this year.

The 30-year-old outfielder said he was healthy and should have a normal New Jersey offseason.

“It was tough for me, but when I look back now and learn from everything, it was the biggest injury of my career,” said Trout.

“It all came down to the last month and a half having tried everything to get out. My calf and body weren’t working together. It was frustrating. I took a week, 2 1/2 weeks off, and I’m feeling almost 100 %. “

Trout hit .3333 with eight homers, 18 RBIs and 1,090 OPS in 36 games that season.
