Angels superstar explains why he chose not to play through knee injury

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout is done for the season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee, but he actually had the chance to keep playing.

    Trout said he had the option of putting off surgery until the offseason and trying to play through the knee problem. However, he would have been limited to DH duties, was already in a lot of pain and risked making the injury worse.

    “It was an option they put out there,” Trout said, via Rhett Bollinger of “It would have been just maintaining the pain level of it. The day I got the MRI and it showed that, I was in a lot of pain, so it would have been a tough road for the rest of the year to bear that. I felt the best option for me was to get it right and be fully healthy to come back soon.”

    To be blunt, the Angels probably are not contenders this year. With that in mind – and combined with the pain he was in – Trout’s decision to simply undergo the surgery now makes total sense. It also means he will have a better chance of being fully healed and ready to go for the start of the 2025 season.

    Trout’s reveal means some recent comments by one ESPN personality look even sillier now.
