ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Angels star Mike Trout was removed from a game against Boston with left groin tightness, but he isn’t concerned about possibly being sidelined. The three-time MVP grimaced in the third inning while running to first base after hitting a double off Red Sox starter Garrett Whitlock. Trout easily reached second but not at full speed. He tried to stretch out the leg once he got there but came out of the game after talking with trainers. Trout was injured hours after the Angels fired manager Joe Maddon with the club mired in a disastrous slump.
