BREAKING: LA Angels Superstar Mike Trout Suffers Fracture, Injury Timeline Revealed

Absolutely brutal news for the Los Angeles Angels who are trying to stay in the AL playoff hunt. Superstar outfielder Mike Trout has suffered a broken hamate bone in his left wrist and is expected to be out until sometime in August. 

According to Angels beat writer Jeff Fletcher, most players who've suffered this injury have a return timeline of six-to-eight weeks. Jose Ramirez made it back in four weeks in 2019, but that's very optimistic.  

Trout suffered the injury on a swing in the eighth inning of Monday night's loss to the San Diego Padres. 

Trout hasn't been off to the greatest of starts this season, by his standards, hitting .263 with an .862 OPS along with 18 HR and 44 RBIs (yes, most players in baseball would take that). But his loss is certainly a massive blow to the Angels' playoff hopes. 

They're currently 6.0 games back of the Texas Rangers in the AL West, and 3.0 out of a Wild Card spot. 

Jo Adell has been called up to replace him in the outfield. He has a minor league-leading 23 HRs with a .956 OPS at Triple-A.
