The Los Angeles Angels were on the receiving end of some bad luck Monday, as Shohei Ohtani and Andrelton Simmons were injured on back-to-back plays in the eighth inning.
Angels superstar Mike Trout wants his teammates to stay positive amid the injuries.
"We can't say it's going (to) derail a season," Trout said following the Angels' 3-1 loss to the Minnesota Twins on Monday, according to The Athletic's Fabian Ardaya. "We've got a lot of guys in the minor leagues that can come up and fill in, guys that have been up here before. We'll go from there."
Ohtani was hit on his right ring finger by a 94-mph Taylor Rogers fastball. The 24-year-old, noticeably in pain, was looked at by a team trainer.
