One of the greatest individual seasons we've seen in the last decade has ended prematurely thanks to a foot injury.
Los Angeles Angels superstar and 2019 AL MVP favorite Mike Trout was ruled out for the remainder of the season after surgery to remove a Morton's neuroma in his foot.
Trout put together another historically great season on a lousy Angels team. Trout hit .291 with an AL-best 45 home runs and 104 RBI. Trout led the league in on-base percentage (.438), slugging percentage (.645) and OPS+ (184), while adding an 8.3 WAR.
Rather than risk a foot injury in what has become another lost season due to a lack of quality pitching, LA decided to give Trout some more time to heal and let him get ready for what should be a better 2020 campaign.
While this is curtains for Trout, the indication is that this is a simple procedure and he'll be back to his old self next season.
