We’ll see where it goes.”Trout said he has no idea what caused this issue, but he’s been feeling it off and on for about a month.“It’s like a nerve thing, so it’s like a shooting pain in my foot, toe area,” he said. “I’ve played through some soreness, but when it gets flared up – once it flares up, it don’t go away. It calms down at night, but once you do baseball activity it flares up again. It’s just tough. I obviously want to be out there. This procedure today, they say it helps it so we’ll see how it goes.” Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
