Mike Trout could have even more pressure on him to carry the Angels' lineup to start the season.
Justin Upton underwent an MRI on his left big toe Tuesday, and manager Brad Ausmus doesn't seem optimistic.
"We're waiting for multiple opinions," Ausmus told reporters, via the LA Times. "We should know more tomorrow. He's not moving real good right now."

Upton left Sunday's spring training game after sustaining the injury to his toe. He led Los Angeles with 85 RBIs in 2018.
Los Angeles will be without designated hitter Shohei Ohtani for at least the first month of the season and possibly longer as he is recovering from Tommy John surgery on his right elbow.
