Angels’ center fielder, Mike Trout, tore his left thumb while sliding headfirst into second base for a steal in the fifth inning against the Miami Marlins on May 27th. An MRI exam on Monday, May 29th, revealed the torn ulnar collateral ligament, according to the OC Register.

“The game did not go particularly well for the Angels as they lost 9-2 against the Miami Marlins, but more importantly, they lost arguably the best player in baseball. This disastrous development, showing just how narrow Angel’s playoff qualification is,” stated the LA Times.

After doctors noticed the degree of the severity of the injury, Trout opted for surgery. The surgery took place on May 31, which was performed by D. Steven Shin. Even though the procedure has accelerated recoveries dramatically, there is still an estimate 6-8 weeks until Trout can be fully recovered, reported MLB.

Angels’ manager, Mike Scioscia, stated after the loss to the Marlins, “It’s definitely the best course of action for him right now.” Scioscia added, “I think he’s comfortable with the decision. Hopefully, everything goes well Wednesday,” according to MLB.

“General manager Billy Eppler stated some very confident words regarding the Angels, “The team will require multiple people stepping up in his absence. The team will continue to fight, as it always does, but you know you’re losing the heart of your order and the heart of your defense and a leader in the dugout and on the bench. It’s something to absorb, there’s no doubt. But I know the guys in the clubhouse will do their darndest to absorb it,” stated MLB.
