Angels power hitter in search of a position Mark Trumbo tweeted that he is alright after taking a grounder to his face at 3B on a practice field in Tempe while transitioning to playing 3B.
THE TRUMBO TWEET: Thanks to everyone who was concerned today. Fortunately no break and shouldn't miss a beat. Can't wait to get back out there.
Numerous press reports had indicated that the injury (on a bad sharp hop off the lip of the infield grass) did not appear serious, but it is Spring and there is no other news so, hey, it's serious! At least he is excited to get back out on the field instead of crabbing about billboards or playing time.
