Hermosillo (groin) is expected to begin participating in baseball activities in about two weeks, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Hermosillo missed all of spring training as he continues to recover from offseason surgery to address a sports hernia. The 24-year-old has no official timetable for his return, but seems likely to remain out at least through mid-May given his lack of work to this point.
The Angels placed Hermosillo (groin) on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports. Hermosillo was sidelined throughout the spring after he took more time than expected to recover from offseason surgery to address a sports hernia. It's still unclear when Hermosillo will be ready to return to action in simulated or minor-league rehab games.
Hermosillo (groin) isn't close to returning to game action, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Hermosillo is still dealing with scar-tissue buildup from offseason groin surgery. He lines up as the Angels' fourth outfielder, but Peter Bourjos could step into that role should Hermosillo require a trip to the injured list to start the year. With Justin Upton questionable for Opening Day as well due to knee tendinitis, Bourjos may even get some starts early in the year.
Hermosillo (groin) remains out of the lineup Thursday against the Brewers, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. He was the frontrunner to win the fourth outfielder job at the outset of camp, and should eventually slot into that role, but this lingering groin injury may force him to open the year on the injured list. If he can get healthy before Justin Upton (knee tendinitis), then he could get a short run as a semi-regular for the Angels.
Hermosillo (groin) remains sidelined Wednesday against the Padres. The Angels' No. 2 (Justin Upton) and No. 4 (Hermosillo) outfielders continue to miss time with injuries, leaving the Angels' Opening Day outfield alignment a little up in the air. If neither player can get up to speed in time, Peter Bourjos could make the team, or perhaps David Fletcher and Kaleb Cowart will shift to outfield duty, allowing Tommy La Stella and Taylor Ward to receive playing time in the infield initially.
