Trout (calf) was able to aggressively run the bases at Angel Stadium on Friday, per MLB.com.

This is a significant step in the superstar's path to a return this season, as Trout hadn't aggressively tested his injured right calf since experiencing discomfort July 22. He's expected to continue his running program and could begin a rehab assignment whenever he's completely pain-free. According to Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times, Trout will play center field if he is able to rejoin the big club this season despite some discussion of him shifting to a corner-outfield spot.
