Angels star Mike Trout (knee) undergoes surgery

Mike Trout

Los Angeles Angels star center fielder Mike Trout underwent surgery Friday to repair the torn meniscus in his left knee.

Angels general manager Perry Minasian said there was no immediate timetable for Trout’s return.

However, a meniscus repair typically can sideline a player from anywhere between four and eight weeks.

The Angels said Trout, 32, would remain in Anaheim for the beginning of his rehab process.

Los Angeles manager Ron Washington said everything went well in the surgical room.

“When they went in, it was exactly what we said it was and nothing else,” Washington said before the team’s Friday game in Cleveland. “So we’re all good.”

Trout led the majors with 10 homers before he was sidelined. The three-time MVP last played in a game on Monday and said he was unsure how he hurt the knee.

Trout, an 11-time All-Star was batting .220 with 14 RBIs and six steals in 29 games.

“He was in a good place, a really good place before he got hurt,” Washington said. “He went through a little bit of struggle, but I would rather have it now because once he finds it, he can go for three months.”

Trout has been derailed by injuries in recent seasons. A calf injury limited him to 36 games in 2021, a back injury helped hold him to 119 games in 2022 and a broken hand last season limited him to one game after July 3 and 82 contests for the season.

Trout is a career .299 hitter with 378 career home runs with 954 RBIs over 1,518 games over 14 seasons, all with the Angels after he was a first-round draft pick (25th overall) in 2009.
