Things keep going from bad to worse for the Los Angeles Angels.
Aside from losing 13 consecutive games and being forced to fire their manager, slugger Mike Trout had to exit last night’s game against the Boston Red Sox after doubling off of Garrett Whitlock in the bottom of the third.
It was later revealed that it was a groin issue.
However, Trout himself doesn’t seem too concerned about this, as Angels beat writer Sam Blum reports on Twitter.
Mike Trout on his injury: “This isn’t nothing crazy.” He said he’s just trying to be smart about it and might do testing tomorrow based on how he feels when he wakes up.

This is a little good news in the wake of all the unfortunate events taking place for the Angels right now.
It’s not good that Trout had to exit the game, but it’s good that he doesn’t believe that it’s serious.
Perhaps that could be a little breath of fresh air for the Angels and their fans.
But it doesn’t change the fact that their losing skid has continued and that they are now at a point where they have lost 13 consecutive games.
Trout said he would do some testing depending on how he felt today.
No news has been reported about that yet, so there’s no telling if Trout will end up being in the lineup tonight against the Red Sox for the third game of their four-game set.
Trout has had some injury troubles in recent years.
Any time without him would be a huge blow to the Angels, who desperately need to try and get going again.
Losing Trout would only make it harder to end the losing skid.
