UPDATE: This story has been updated to reflect the fact that Trout's injury was to his elbow, not his wrist.
Angels outfielder Mike Trout has quickly put an illness-plagued spring training behind him with an excellent start to the 2012 regular season, but now he's facing another problem. Trout left Sunday's game after being hit by a pitch on his left elbow.
Trout had already tripled earlier in the game, raising his averages to .400/.463/.600. He has six steals in seven attempts. Trout remained in the game after the plunking, but was later removed. Trout later Tweeted that he's OK and expects to be in the lineup on Monday.
Before the injury, Trout was doing everything he could to top his 2011 season, which was good enough to earn the Baseball America Minor League Player of the Year award. Trout had reached base safely in all 18 games this year and had picked up at least one hit in 17 of his 18 games played.
