Mike Trout will miss his second straight game Friday as he nurses a groin injury.

The Angels superstar is not in the lineup for their matchup against the Cubs at Wrigley Field, with veteran Peter Bourjos
replacing him in center field. Trout first tweaked his groin while
running the bases in Tuesday’s 11-8 win over the Brewers and exited that
game in the fourth inning, though Los Angeles is hopeful he will return
to action soon. The weather in Chicago might also be a factor, with the
temperature expected to feel like the low 40s around first pitch. The
Angels are understandably being cautious with their cornerstone player.

“It's just day to day,” Trout said Wednesday. “There's no sense in going out there and trying to push it.”

Trout received the American League Player of the Week Award on Monday
-- his first time earning the honor since 2015 -- after one of his best
weeks as a Major Leaguer. He reached base in 13 of his 18 plate
appearances against Texas and finished the Angels’ four-game series with
a .545/.722/1.909 slash line -- giving him an eye-popping 2.631 OPS
that ranks as the third best for any player in a four-game series behind
Babe Ruth (3.111 vs. Detroit on June 11-14, 1921) and Mickey Mantle
(2.850 vs. Kansas City on July 2-4 in 1962), according to the Elias
Sports Bureau.
Trout is currently slashing .406/.592/.938 with five home
runs on the season.
