Trout sore but OK after fouling ball off calf
BALTIMORE -- Mike Trout walked around the clubhouse without a limp, even breaking into a light jog down the hallway.

He told manager Mike Scioscia in passing he is still sore after fouling a pitch off his left calf in the ninth inning of Saturday night's 6-2 loss to the Orioles, but it doesn't sound serious.

"He'll be available to do some things if we need him," Scioscia said.

Trout was not in the lineup Sunday, but that's hardly a surprise considering Orioles righty Alfredo Simon is pitching. Only 12 of Trout's 27 starts this year have come against righties, and he is hitting just .163 (8-for-49) against right-handed starters this season with a .226 on-base percentage.
