Mike Trout to miss All-Star Game because of injured thumb

ANAHEIM, Calif. — AL MVP Mike Trout will miss the All-Star Game while rehabilitating his left thumb.

The Los Angeles Angels star outfielder tore the ulnar collateral ligament in the thumb on May 28 during a headfirst slide and had surgery three days later to repair the ligament and dorsal capsule. The team said Monday he will work out Tuesday at Class A Inland Empire.

Angels general manager Bill Eppler said in a statement Monday “based on the timeline established for Mike to return from his thumb injury, he will be rehabilitating into the All-Star break and will therefore not be able participate in the All-Star festivities.”

Trout is batting .337 with 16 homers, 36 RBIs and 10 steals. He was the AL MVP in 2014 and 2016, and was the All-Star Game MVP in 2014 and 2015. He was elected by fans to the starting outfield, his fifth election and sixth All-Star team.
