Trout is feeling lingering soreness in his right calf, and manager Joe Maddon conceded Monday the outfielder could be shut down for the season, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Trout being shut down has always been a possibility given the lingering injury and the fact the team is essentially out of playoff contention, but this is the first public indication from the Angels that route is actually being considered. The 30-year-old still hopes to retake the field in 2021, but time is running out as he continues to experience calf soreness. Brandon Marsh will continue to start in center field in the meantime.
