Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout was scratched from the lineup Monday night due to a sudden illness. Of course, having the three-time American League MVP out on the field is crucial for the team's success. The good news is that Trout could be back in the lineup as soon as Tuesday.
Trout told reporters following the Angels' 6-2 win over the Miami Marlins that he was already feeling better. The biggest thing will be how he feels waking up and going about his routine prior to LA's Tuesday night contest. That'll be the determining factor in whether or not he is able to play.
A quick return would be a breath of fresh air considering how Trout's 2021 season was marred by various injuries. The nine-time All-Star played in only 36 games as the Angels failed to make the playoffs for the seventh year in a row. Trout's certainly hoping he can help change that fact.
It's not hard to understand why Trout is regarded as one of the best players in the majors. The 30-year-old owns a career slash line of .305/.419/.583 and has led the league in runs scored four different times. Trout has also smacked 311 home runs across 12 seasons with the Angels.
Keep an eye out for any updates regarding Trout's status as a lineup card should come out a few hours prior to first pitch at 7:07 p.m. EST tonight. The Angels will aim to get back to the .500 mark with a win against Miami.
