Angels' Mike Trout says his hamstring injury is 'no big deal'

The Angels' Mike Trout says he expects to play Wednesday despite suffering a minor hamstring injury Tuesday

Mike Trout said the left-hamstring injury that forced the Angels center fielder to be lifted for a pinch runner in the fifth inning of Tuesday night’s 9-3 win over the Houston Astros is minor, and that he expects to play in Wednesday night’s series finale in Angel Stadium.

“It’s just a little soreness, it’s no big deal,” said Trout, who started at designated hitter and drove in three runs with a sacrifice fly and a pair of RBI singles. “I don’t feel it when I run. I just feel it a little after I run. I just know it’s there.”

Trout’s last hit Tuesday night was a bases-loaded chopper to third that he beat out for an infield single. The Angels took a 9-1 lead on the play, more than enough cushion for Manager Mike Scioscia to pull Trout from the game.

“It’s precautionary,” Trout said. “If it was a close game, I wouldn’t have come out, but I don’t want it to become a bigger issue.”
