After missing a weekend series at Chicago against the Cubs, Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout is expected to be with the team Monday at Texas for the start of a three-game series.
Trout's availability for Monday's game versus the Rangers still is not known, but his most recent examination for a right groin strain was positive. According to mlb.com, ultrasound images revealed that Trout's injury is progressing in a positive direction.
The two-time MVP was injured on the bases in Tuesday's victory over the Milwaukee Brewers. He did not play in Wednesday's series finale against Milwaukee and was absent for the series at Wrigley Field (Sunday's game was postponed because of weather).
Trout was batting .406 over his first 12 games with five home runs and 12 RBIs.
