Trout, 28, left Friday's game against the Chicago White Sox in the fifth inning, and did not start Saturday or Sunday. He did appear as a pinch hitter Saturday, but was replaced after being intentionally walked.
"He has what's called a neuroma in his right foot," Angels manager Brad Ausmus told reporters. "I'm not in the medical field, but it's a buildup of tissue around the nerve that causes pain. Today, he had a cryoablation that deadens the tissue, deadens the nerve area. So he'll miss a couple days but we don't expect him to miss more than a couple days. But that's why he's not in the lineup (Monday night)."
According to the Mayo Clinic, in a cryoablation a needle is used to freeze and ultimately destroy tissue.
The two-time American League MVP is hitting .291 and leads the majors in walks (110) and on-base percentage (.438), and is tied for the league lead with 45 home runs.
