Found August 20, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Los Angeles Angels' outfielder Mike Trout was scratched from Monday night's lineup against the Cleveland Indians, a day after he left a game with tightness in his right hamstring. As reported by Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com, Trout injured his hamstring while running out a double in the third inning of Sunday's 7-5 loss to the Astros. He scored later in the inning on a single by Mark Trumbo.  Trout remained in the game to fly out in the fifth and then was replaced in the field by Kole Calhoun in the sixth.  .Trout did not appear to be too concerned about the injury after the game. "It's still a little sore," Trout said. "I'm just going to take it easy today. We'll see how I feel tomorrow. I wanted to play, but I don't need to push it. No grabbing today. It was grabbing a little bit yesterday, but today nothing." Trout has been very durable all season, having missed only one game back on June 30.  Trout, the American League Rookie of the Year last season with 30 home runs and 83 runs batted in, is batting .333 with 21 home runs and 78 runs batted in this season.

And so it begins, Angels fall to Astros 7-5

At least the Angels were able to avoid an all too likely sweep by the Astros this weekend, instead of the usual rolling over act. The bullpen came in and blew a not so great start by Jason Vargas, who left the Angels in a position to win the game despite a shaky afternoon. It's hard to imagine the Angels could make us feel any worse than another pathetic series loss against the...
