    Trout (thumb) out; still awaiting MRI results

    ESPN.com news services Mike Trout will not play for the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night against the Atlanta Braves, but the team is still awaiting the results of Trout's MRI. The Angels are hoping he avoids a trip to the disabled list after the star center fielder sprained his left thumb in Sunday's loss to the Miami Marlins. X-rays taken on Trout's hand were negative for any fracture, according to the team. "A scary thing," Trout said after Anaheim's 9-2 loss in Miami.

    Series preview: Braves @ Angels (Simba’s revenge?)

    After a disappointing road trip that saw the Angels drop six out of 10 games to bring their record to 26-27, the Angels welcome the Braves to town. Atlanta is currently tied for second place in the NL East at 21-27, and they lost one of the game’s top players, Freddie Freeman, to an injury a couple of weeks ago. They’ve scored one more run than the Angels this year, which slots them at 17th in the majors in that category, and they are 24th in team ERA. The Braves are in the midst of a rebuilding process, which is why Andrelton Simmons is an Angel and the reason the Angels should have the advantage in this series. Question: Can the Angels find a way to win a series against a team they’re supposed
