Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout, out of the lineup since Aug. 2 with right wrist inflammation, was placed on the 10-day disabled list by the club Friday -- through the club announced the move is retroactive to Monday.

The two-time AL MVP suffered the injury Aug. 1 against the Tampa Bay Rays while sliding feet first into third base. An MRI exam revealed inflammation but no ligament or bone damage. He also reportedly received a cortisone injection Monday.

The only time Trout has been out longer in his career was last season, when he missed 39 games after tearing ligaments in his left thumb on a head-first slide.

The team started out 1-3 in his absence but has won three straight, sweeping Detroit. Trout, 27, is hitting .309 with 30 home runs, 60 RBIs and 21 steals in 109 games this season.
