In the eighth inning, Trout fouled off a pitch and grabbed at his wrist. He briefly returned to the batter’s box before backing away and signaling to the dugout that he needed assistance. After discussions with team staffers, he took off his batting glove and then walked back to the dugout.
Mickey Moniak finished the at-bat, a strikeout that was charged to Trout.
Trout underwent postgame tests on the wrist, according to manager Phil Nevin. The 11-time All-Star admitted that he was in pain while awaiting the test results.
On Thursday, Trout was selected as an All-Star starter for the 10th time in his career. By his own lofty standards, Trout is in the midst of a down year, as he is hitting .263 with a .369 on-base percentage, a .493 slugging percentage, 18 homers and 44 RBIs in 81 games.
Trout, 31, is a three-time American League Most Valuable Player, two-time All-Star MVP and nine-time Silver Slugger winner. In 1,488 career games over 13 seasons, all with the Angels, he has a .301/.412/.582 hitting line with 368 homers and 940 RBIs
