Reigning American League MVP Mike Trout will miss the 2017 Major League Baseball all-star game with a thumb injury, the Los Angeles Angels announced Monday.

Trout has missed 33 games after having surgery to repair a torn ligament in the thumb.


“I couldn’t be more honored to be voted to play in the all-star game this season,” Trout said in a news release. 


“There are so many players in our game that deserve to be on the all-star team so to be elected again is truly humbling. 

“We play this game day in and day out for the fans so I am incredibly grateful that they see me as deserving of such honor.”

Trout, who was hitting .337 with 16 home runs and 36 RBIs before the injury, was elected as a starter for the American League for the fifth straight year.

The all-star game will take place July 11 in Miami.
