Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout has exited his side's game against the Houston Astros due to upper back spasms.

Trout was forced out in the fifth inning, having gone zero-for-two with two strikeouts.

The three-time American League MVP, who has been named as a starting outfielder for Friday's All-Star Game, has struggled during July, with only one home run and four RBIs in 10 games, batting at .167/.231/.250.

The Angels have slumped to a 38-49 record, after a run of eight losses in their past 10 games.

Across the season, Trout has 24 home runs and 51 RBIs from 79 games, but the Angels have missed infielder Matt Duffy and third baseman Anthony Rendon due to injuries more recently.
