ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Angels star outfielder Mike Trout is day-to-day after straining his right groin during Tuesday night’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Following his team’s 11-8 victory, Trout said he first felt discomfort after completing a workout earlier in the day and it flared up as he was running to second base in the second inning. He was removed for Peter Bourjos in the fourth.

“I went in the outfield (during the third inning) and it felt worse,” Trout said. “I didn’t want to push it. It is better to take time out than blow it out.”

Angels manager Brad Ausmus said it was more than likely he would keep Trout out of the lineup for Wednesday’s series finale. The Angels have Thursday off before beginning a three-game series Friday in Chicago against the Cubs. Considering the chilly forecast for the weekend, Trout could remain out if he’s not 100 percent.

Trout said he was feeling better, but considering how early it is in the season, he’s also aware of taking things slow.

“After talking to doctors, it was a pretty good thing I came out. I just have to get it right and when it is 100 percent I will play,” he said.

Trout, who signed a record $426.5 million, 12-year contract near the end of spring training, is second in the American League with a .406 batting average. The two-time MVP is tied for third in home runs (five) and tied for fourth in RBIs (12). He has reached base safely in all 12 games.
