Trout fine after being struck in helmet

March 11th, 2018

TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Angels suffered another injury scare on Sunday, as star center fielder was hit on the helmet by a pitch from reliever in the sixth inning of a 4-3 win over the Rangers at Tempe Diablo Stadium.

Trout seemed to be OK, immediately putting his helmet back on and jogging to first base before being lifted for a pinch-runner. The Angels did not call for a trainer to examine him before he left the game.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Trout is fine and was making his final plate appearance for the day. Trout finished 0-for-2 and is now 4-for-19 (.211) this spring.
