Millville native Mike Trout did not start for the Los Angeles Angels against Cleveland on Monday night because of a tight hamstring.
Trout left Sunday’s game against the Houston Astros after the fifth inning because he said he felt tightness in his right hamstring.
The Angels’ outfielder and 2012 American League Rookie of the Year only had missed one game this season, June 30, also because of a hamstring injury.
In 122 games through Sunday, Trout was hitting .333 (156-for-469) with 21 home runs, 78 RBIs and 88 runs. He had hit 34 doubles and eight triples. He had 77 walks and 95 strikeouts. His on-base percentage was .430, his slugging percentage .574 and his OPS 1.004.
Heading into Monday, Trout had reached base in 40 consecutive games, the longest current streak in the majors. He also had collected a hit in eight consecutive games.
The Angels will host Cleveland and starter Zach McAllister (5-7, 3.74 ERA) today at 10:05 p.m.
