  • Angels' Mike Trout: Progresses to tee work

    Interim manager Phil Nevin said Trout (ribs) "feels really good" after hitting off a tee Monday, Sonja Chen of reports.

    The 31-year-old began taking dry swings over the weekend, and he quickly progressed to hitting off a tee with no apparent issues. The next step for Trout is batting practice, and from there he'll advance to facing live pitching. The start center fielder remains without a clear return timeline, but an activation in mid-to-late August could be possible if he avoids any setbacks.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Takes dry swings

    Trout (rib cage) took dry swings Saturday and had no issues, Rhett Bollinger of reports.

    Trout has been out since before the All-Star break due to a rare back condition that caused left rib cage inflammation. The Angels have little incentive to rush him back, as they sit 11.5 games back of a playoff spot, but the star outfielder has indicated that he intends to return this season. Exactly when he's likely to return remains unclear, as he still has several steps to go in his recovery, but it's nonetheless a positive to see him able to swing without issues.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Begins rotational excercises

    Trout (rib cage) started rotational work Wednesday with the goal of building back up to the point that he's able to swing a bat, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    According to Angels head athletic trainer Mike Frostad, Trout didn't experience any issues during the workout, per Rhett Bollinger of Still, it's unclear when the superstar outfielder may be able to resume taking swings. Trout hasn't played in a game since July 16 but has said that he expects to play again this season, though the organization has no reason to rush him along, given that the Angels are currently 11 games out of a wild-card spot.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Could start swinging again soon

    Trout (rib cage) is scheduled to resume rotational exercises Wednesday and could be cleared to start swinging a bat again soon thereafter, Rhett Bollinger of reports.

    After receiving positive feedback from Dr. Robert Watkins on Thursday, Trout looks poised to take a small step forward in his recovery from left rib cage inflammation, an injury that resulted in him being placed on the injured list during the All-Star break. A few days earlier, Angels trainer Mike Frostad relayed that Trout's rib issue is related to a rare back condition called costovertebral dysfunction, which could be something that the perennial All-Star has to manage for the remainder of his career. The condition doesn't sound like anything that will force Trout to seriously consider an early retirement or even keep him out for the remainder of the season, as he reiterated Sunday that he's optimistic about a return to action in the not-too-distant future, per Sam Blum of The Athletic. A more precise timeline for Trout's potential return likely won't come forth until he's not only swinging a bat again, but also incorporating more baseball activities into his rehab program.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Expects to play again in 2022

    Trout (ribs) expects to play again in 2022, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    Trout has been diagnosed with a rare back condition due to costovertebral dysfunction, and the Angels' head athletic trainer said Wednesday that the issue will likely be something that the outfielder deals with for the remainder of the season and the rest of his career. However, Trout said after Wednesday's win over the Royals that he expects to play again in 2022. "I've got to stay on top of the routine I do on a daily basis to prevent it from coming back. I feel good where I'm at right now. Every day it's improving. And I feel really good. I felt really good today," Trout said Wednesday. The 30-year-old didn't give a timetable for his return, but he'll meet with team doctors Sunday to help determine his status.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Facing unknown return timeline

    Angels head athletic trainer Mike Frostad said Wednesday that Trout's ongoing absence due to left rib cage inflammation is related to a "rare back condition" called costovertebral dysfunction, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports. "This is a pretty rare condition that he has right now in his back," Frostad said. "Long-term we do have to look at this as something that -- he has to manage it, not just through the rest of this season, but also through the rest of his career probably."

    Though Frostad noted that Trout is starting to feel the benefits of the cortisone shot he received in his rib cage last Thursday, the 30-year-old won't be cleared to resume baseball activities until at least next weekend, as the Angels want to give him a full two weeks off for the injection to take effect. While Trout's placement on the 10-day injured list July 18 was characterized as a rib issue, the injury has created back pain that puts the superstar outfielder at risk of a longer absence than had been expected. Trout's upcoming re-evaluation next week should shed more light on both his rest-of-season and long-term outlook, but fantasy managers should at least stay prepared for the possibility that he doesn't play again in 2022.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Return at least one week away

    Angels athletic trainer Mike Frostad said Wednesday that Trout (rib) won't be able to resume baseball activities until at least Aug. 5, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    According to Frostad, Trout will need a full two weeks off for the cortisone shot he received last Thursday to take full effect, so the superstar outfield will remain in somewhat of a holding pattern for at least eight more days. Because the left rib cage inflammation has kept Trout out of the lineup since July 12, he'll likely need a few days' worth of workouts and potentially a brief rehab assignment to get ramped back up. As such, fantasy managers probably shouldn't count on him playing until at least the second week of August, even if the cortisone shot fully alleviates the pain Trout has been experiencing. Trout's ongoing absence should continue to open up a full-time role in the outfield for Jo Adell, who is day-to-day with a bruised arm but shouldn't be in line for a trip to the injured list.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Receives cortisone shot

    Trout (ribs) received a cortisone shot recently and won't return when first eligible Monday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    The Angels initially hoped that Trout would be able to be activated early next week, but he'll spend more than the minimum of 10 days on the injured list. The 30-year-old will continue to receive treatment and will be monitored on a daily basis, so it's still possible that he returns at some point next week.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Could return early next week

    Trout (ribs) is feeling better, and the Angels hope he'll be able to return early next week, per

    Trout is eligible to be activated from his stint on the 10-day IL on Monday, but it's far from certain that he'll be able to return on that day. Nonetheless, per Rhett Bollinger of, manager Phil Nevin expressed optimism that the superstar outfielder is getting better. "He feels good today. It's a situation where we had to put him on the IL and hopefully it's not much longer than that. It's something we need to address and access every day. He's getting treatment but he's not there," Nevin said Friday. Trout is slashing .270/.368/.599 with 24 homers and 51 RBI across 326 plate appearances this season, but he had been struggling prior to landing on the IL, batting .167 (6-for-36) with 18 strikeouts and just two walks through 11 games in July.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Heads to IL with rib injury

    The Angels placed Trout on the 10-day injured list Monday with left rib cage inflammation.

    The team had previously described the injury that kept Trout out of the lineup for the final four games before the All-Star break as upper-back spasms, but a new diagnosis was provided Monday upon his placement on the IL. Because he hasn't played since July 12 and the Angels will be on break until Friday, Trout may only miss one more contest, as he'll be eligible to return from the IL as soon as the team's second game of the second half Saturday versus Atlanta, per Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register. Whether Trout is on track for a weekend return isn't yet certain, and the Angels may not provide another update on where the superstar outfielder stands in his recovery from the injury until the team resumes workouts Thursday.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Missing out on All-Star Game

    Trout (back) won't be available for Tuesday's MLB All-Star Game, reports.

    On Sunday, the American League officially added Seattle's Ty France to its Midsummer Classic roster as a replacement for Trout, who won't be available for the exhibition after missing the Angels' final four games of the All-Star break with upper-back spasms. Minnesota's Byron Buxton is slated to start in center field in place of Trout, who still hopes to avoid a stint on the injured list. With the Angels getting Sunday off, he'll have five full days to heal up before the Halos open their second-half schedule Friday in Atlanta.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Scratched from lineup

    Trout has been scratched from the lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers due to upper-back spasms.

    Trout was expected to make his return from a three-game absence, but it would seem his back didn't respond well to pregame activity. Brandon Marsh enters the lineup to face lefty Julio Urias. The Angels are off Sunday, so Trout's status may not be updated until the MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday. Trout has yet to announce whether he plans on playing in the exhibition as a result of the back issue.

  • Angels' Mike Trout: Returns as expected

    Trout (back) will bat second and play center field Tuesday against the Dodgers, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    Trout has been out of action since he left Tuesday's game against the Astros with back spasms, but he indicated Friday that he'd be ready to return for Saturday's first-half finale, a prediction which proved accurate. He's in a bit of a slump in July, hitting .167/.231/.250 through 10 games, though that's only brought his OPS on the season down to .967.
