CF - LAA - IL60
Los Angeles outfielder Mike Trout (calf) was “feeling something in the calf area,” but that it wasn't necessarily serious. The star outfielder will be re-evaluated on Monday.
Trout has been unable to run the bases the last three days after feeling something in his calf area. He will undergo additional tests on Monday, but the Angels believe the issue isn’t severe. Trout was close to beginning a rehab assignment but remains without a timeline until the results of Monday’s tests come in. Stay tuned.
Mike Trout ran at 90 percent on Monday, though he still doesn't know when he'll begin a rehab assignment.
This sounds like good news, but realistically, Trout isn't particularly close to returning. He'll still need to work up to running at full speed, then begin a lengthy rehab assignment given how much time he's missed. Still, Trout described himself as "excited," so as long as he continues to progress, fantasy managers shouldn't complain.
Angels OF Mike Trout (calf) hit off a pitching machine on the field on Monday.
This is the first time Trout has done so since mid-May. The All-World outfielder is still multiple weeks from returning to the big leagues.
The Angels transferred Mike Trout to the 60-day IL on Monday.
This is really just a procedural move, as Trout was almost certainly not going to return before the All-Star break under even the most optimistic timeline at this point. He has progressed to swinging a bat in the cages at Angel Stadium, however, which is at least a modicum of good news. He'll be eligible to return on July 17, shortly after the break, but whether he will actually be able to do so is an open question.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout, who's dealing with Grade 2 calf strain, is likely to remain out for "probably another month," according to manager Joe Maddon.
Trout suffered the injury back in mid-May and the original timetable for his absence was 6-8 weeks. Maddon didn't rule out that he could return to the team sooner than a month but said it would "be a stretch" for Trout to make it back for the All-Star game. The team would be wise not to rush back their superstar outfielder at this point and should provide another update later on this week.
