Mike Trout, who has been bothered by a soreness on the bottom of his right foot for about a month, on Monday got some answers and some treatment.
Trout has a neuroma, a condition in which tissue builds up around a nerve and causes pain. He was treated with a cryoblation, in which extreme cold fluid is injected to deaden the tissue in the area.
All of that sounds worse than it is. The Angels and Trout both said they expect him to be able to play in a few days.
“It feels good,” Trout said. “Just taking today (off). See how it feels tomorrow.”
Manager Brad Ausmus said Trout could play by the Wednesday, and he said he’d be “shocked” if Trout wasn’t playing by the end of the week.
