Trout batted second as the designated hitter for the final game of the series and went 1-for-4 on the night.
However, as one Angels slugger returned, another departed on Thursday night as Albert Pujols left the game with left hamstring tightness. He is considered day-to-day.
Trout left Sunday’s 6-3 win over the Seattle Mariners after the second inning. An MRI performed Monday had revealed a small strain in Trout’s right calf.
Manager Brad Ausmus said Wednesday that Trout would be evaluated again before playing.
“Hopefully he’ll be able to go [Thursday] full bore,” Ausmus said.
The 27-year-old is batting .305/.455/.666, on a pace to compete for his third MVP trophy. He’s 12-for-32 with eight home runs in nine games this month.
