Mike Trout to DL with right wrist inflammation – MLB.com

ANAHEIM — The Angels will have to carry on without Mike Trout for longer than they had hoped. Trout was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Friday with right wrist inflammation, retroactive to Aug. 6.

Trout has not played since Aug. 1 after jamming his wrist on an awkward feet-first slide into third base during a game against the Rays. Trout received a cortisone injection on Monday, and the Angels were initially optimistic that the 27-year-old center fielder would be able to avoid the disabled list and return to action for this weekend’s series against the A’s.

Friday’s transaction means Trout won’t be eligible to return until Aug. 16. It is only Trout’s second career stint on the disabled list. He missed nearly seven weeks last season after tearing a thumb ligament on a head-first slide into second base on a stolen-base attempt.

The Angels have gone 4-3 in their first seven games without Trout in their lineup. He is batting .309 with an MLB-high 1.083 OPS, 30 home runs and 60 RBIs in 109 games this season.
