Mike Trout out for weeks; may need surgery

The Los Angeles Angels announced on Monday that MVP Mike Trout will be out for six to eight weeks following surgery. Assuming Maybin will see plenty of time in center, Revere will likely slide into the everyday left field role until Trout returns.

Pedroia, 33, is hitting.292 with two home runs and 21 RBIs in 45 games. The home runs will be there at the end of the season, but if Davis is going to hit for a low average and not drive in a ton of runs, it doesn't matter how many home runs he hits, he is not helping fantasy owners.

Trout's injury will mark the first time he's been put on the disabled list in his career with his career starting towards the end of the 2011 season. They have some history between them - in the 2014 NL Division Series, Harper hit two home runs off Strickland, and the All-Star outfielder glared at the reliever as he rounded the bases.

Royals manager Ned Yost said Monday: "He's going to be out for a while".

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Angels are -135 money line favorites to beat the Braves, who have odds of +115 to pull off the upset tonight in L.A.

Teheran allowed two earned runs and no homers in his previous four road starts.

"It's really hard to quantify (his loss)", Eppler said. His Braves are without first baseman Freddie Freeman because of a broken wrist.

Jim Johnson pitched a scoreless ninth to earn his 11th save. "Out 6-8 weeks", tweets Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times. "We've got a lot of talent in this room", he said. According to Elias, only one other pitcher since 1893 had that many strikeouts in his first 10 starts with a team: Randy Johnson in 1998 as a member of the Astros. The 26-year-old, who has never faced the Angels, is 3-9 with a 5.63 ERA in 15 interleague starts.
