Angels’ Mike Trout has MRI exam of hamstring and the results are clean – Los Angeles Times

When the Angels traveled to the Bay Area on Sunday evening, Mike Trout stayed in Orange County at the team’s request to undergo an MRI examination on his tight left hamstring. After the results came back clean, he traveled north Monday to meet his teammates.

General manager Billy Eppler said the examination was arranged “in order to have a thumbprint moving forward,” so the team could compare images later.

“You never want to take an MRI. Hearing the news, though, relieves me a little bit,” Trout said. “It made me comfortable knowing. It just cleared my mind a little bit.”

For the fourth time in five days, Trout did not start the Angels’ game Monday night, and he said he was unavailable to enter the game as a reserve.
