Mike Trout to resume hitting off tee

Mike Trout is expected to resume hitting off a tee in the coming days.

Fantasy Impact

Trout continues to make progress in his return from his thumb injury. He says that he wants to be back before the All-Star break. While that may not be realistic, it does seem that he could beat his timeline and be back in July.

Mike Trout to resume swinging bat

Mike Trout will begin taking dry swings on Tuesday. He's recovering from a fractured thumb.

Fantasy Impact

Trout continues making progress, though he still has a lengthy road ahead of him. He's said that he hopes to return sooner than expected, potentially prior to the All-Star break (July 11). That would be a boon for fantasy owners, though there should be some concern since this is a thumb injury that could impact Trout at the plate, at least initially.

Mike Trout (thumb) hopes to return before the All-Star break

Mike Trout said on Tuesday that he hopes to return from a torn left thumb ligament before the July 11 All-Star game, according to Angels beat writer Pedro Moura. “Before the All-Star break, right at the All-Star break, depending on how it goes,” Trout said. “I don't want to push it. I want to make sure it’s right. I don’t want it to be lingering the rest of the season.”

Fantasy Impact

Trout is the consensus best player in baseball and easily one of the most valuable fantasy contributors, so owners would obviously be thrilled to get him back on the short side of his initial 6-to-8 week recovery timeline. It is no guarantee that he will actually be able to return that early, but Trout's optimism is an indication that he feels good about his recovery so far.

Mike Trout undergoes successful surgery

Mike Trout underwent successful surgery on Wednesday to repair a torn ligament in his thumb. He's expected to miss 6-to-8 weeks due to the injury.

Fantasy Impact

Trout was clearly the best player in baseball when he went down, and his status atop the fantasy baseball world shouldn't change in upcoming seasons. However, the injury could have him look a bit different when he returns considering its to his hand and will likely impact his batting in the short term. Owners will have to wait it out and hope he returns to form when he's activated.

Mike Trout (thumb) opts for surgery, will miss 6-to-8 weeks

Mike Trout is planning to undergo surgery on Wednesday to repair the torn UCL in his left thumb and will miss 6-to-8 weeks. Trout was placed on the 10-day disabled list with the thumb injury on Monday after leaving Sunday's game early.

Fantasy Impact

Trout opting for surgery means a longer timetable for his return. When he first landed on the disabled list, the hope was that he might be able to return in a few weeks. Trout and the Angels, however, decided that having surgery was the safest plan that would allow for Trout to make a full recovery. This timeline puts Trout on track to return around middle-to-late July at the earliest.
