Trout was diagnosed was a costovertebral dysfunction in his back.
Reports yesterday indicated that this would affect his career, and fans all around the baseball world assumed the worst.
However, after the Halos’ 4-0 win over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday afternoon, Trout opened up a little about his condition and stated that the reports were blown out of proportion.
Sam Blum of the Athletic took a screenshot of the transcript of Trout’s interview and posted it on Twitter.
Mike Trout spoke postgame. His message was more optimistic than what was said earlier.
He said he'll play again this season & he's feeling better. He said this whole thing was overblown.

Trout Remains In Good Spirits
We can only hope that Trout is right about this.
It’s nice to see him in good spirits.
Trout seems confident that this won’t affect his career in any way, shape, or form, and that all it means is that he’ll have to adjust his routine a little bit and keep at that routine for the remaining days of his career.
It seems that the reports were overblown a bit.
Trout also seems to be confident that he’ll get a chance to play again this season.
While the Angels appear to be well out of postseason contention, Trout still wants a chance to go out and compete.
It’s clear that he isn’t going to let this condition bother him too much and that he’ll do what he can to get back out on the baseball field.
It’s nice to see that he’s not panicking over it and that he still seems to be in good spirits, despite what the reports had said.
Trout will have to make some adjustments, but it’s good that this doesn’t appear to be career threatening.
