Trout says thumb is 'fine'
DENVER -- A day after an errant fastball, clocked at 97 mph, clipped him on the thumb in the top of the ninth inning, Mike Trout said he was feeling "fine."

"It just hit the the tip of my finger," said Trout, who had a small bandage wrap on his left thumb. "I'm happy I got out of the way."

After a brief injury delay, Trout took his base, advanced to third on a hit by Torii Hunter and then scored on an Albert Pujols double. It was one of Trout's three runs scored in the Angels 7-2 win over the Rockies. Trout, a rookie, also notched three hits and stole two bases.

Since May 1, Trout is hitting .360, tops among American League hitters. He's compiled a .500 batting average in June heading into play on Saturday. Overall, Trout is hitting. 340 with five home runs and 22 RBIs, with 11 stolen bases.

"He's been a catalyst," said Angels manager Mike Scioscia. "You have to step back and realize this is a 20-year-old kid. He gives you a lot of confidence moving forward about having a player who's going to be an impact player in your lineup for a while."

Trout went 3-for-5 with two RBIs, three runs scored and two stolen bases on Saturday.
