Angles' Trout out indefinitely with thumb injury

They're going to have to get used to this in Anaheim.

An MRI on Monday revealed the extent of the damage and the Angels put the 25-year-old onto the disabled list for the first time in his career. He conceivably could be back in five to eight weeks, but that's getting way ahead of ourselves. The nine-year major league veteran started in left field, went 1-for-4 and stole two bases. He's also leading in home runs, walks, on-base percentage and slugging percentage. Other outfielders to consider: the Angels' Cameron Maybin, who already has 13 stolen bases; the Tampa Bay Rays' Steven Souza Jr.; and the Colorado Rockies' Gerardo Parra. Justin Smoak hit a three-run homer and Russell Martin added a two-run shot for Toronto.

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. With Julio Teheran set to face Ricky Nolasco in the pitching matchup, the over/under now sits at 8 runs.

"It looked like Ricky was trying to throw his way out of jams instead of pitching", Scioscia said.
