Really, really bad news for the Angels on Monday.
Star outfielder Mike Trout will miss time after being diagnosed with a torn ligament in his left thumb, Angels general manager Billy Eppler said before the team took on the Braves.
If Trout decides for surgery, he could miss five-to-eight weeks. He injured his thumb on a headfirst slide to second base vs. Miami on Sunday.

Trout has never been on the disabled list in his entire seven-year MLB career. He was added to the 10-day OL on Monday.
On the season, Trout is batting .337 with 16 home runs and 36 RBI.
