Angels' Mike Trout to undergo season-ending foot surgery
Trout had not played since Sept. 7
Trout had been sidelined for the last week after undergoing a procedure for the Morton's neuroma -- a thickening of the tissue around a nerve -- in his right foot. As the Angels PR department notes, Trout still experienced pain in his right foot during on-field tests before Sunday's game against the Rays.
At the time of Sunday's announcement, the eight-time All Star leads the American League in OPS (1.083) and home runs (45), and leads the league in walks (110) and OBP (.438). Trout's 45 home runs this season are a career-high. Trout, 28, has taken home the AL MVP Award twice before (2014, 2016) and he's been the runner-up four times. Astros' Alex Bregman is Trout's Along with Bregman, here are four other players who could make a late push.
The Angels have been. Entering Sunday, the club is in fourth place in the American League West with a 67-82 record.
