The past two weeks have seen a glut of season-ending injuries to baseball’s best and brightest young stars, so it was only a matter of time before baseball’s wonder-boy, Mike Trout, was next.

Trout has not played since September 7, as he has been dealing with persistent pain in his right foot, but he remained hopeful that he would return to the Angels’ lineup before the end of the season. That hope disappeared today, according to this message from the team.
