Mike Trout is headed to the DL with a UCL tear in his thumb which may or may not require surgery. This is a significant injury because you need your thumb for many things including gripping a bat, and squeezing the ball. He’s expected to miss up to eight weeks depending on if surgery is performed. Tough break for the best player in the game.
