Trout recently decided to shut himself down for the season despite the fact that recent scans have shown that his right calf strain has healed, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

Trout indicated that the decision to shut it down for the season was his own, though the writing had been on the wall for some time that the superstar outfielder would not be able to return by the end of the campaign. On a positive note, Trout stated that he's essentially 100 percent healed and that he expects to have a normal offseason. The 30-year-old will finish the campaign having played in only 36 games and registering a .333/.466/.624 slash line along with eight home runs, 18 RBI and two stolen bases. Despite his injury-shortened 2021, Trout will likely be a first-round fantasy pick in 2022 drafts given his prognosis for a return to full health next season.
