Trout (calf) has been feeling better but hasn't yet ramped up his running, per MLB.com.
Trout had begun to run the bases and participate in outfield drills over a week ago, but he subsequently pulled back after feeling discomfort while running. The superstar outfielder hasn't been able to ramp back up since then, though a recent MRI provided encouraging results. According to Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register, Trout has been given the green light to do more work when the discomfort subsides, but there isn't much clarity about how long that may take.
Trout (calf) received an MRI on Thursday and was encouraged with the results, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
Despite the encouraging results, Trout remains without a timetable for his return, and he has yet to begin running. He has now been sidelined for 10 weeks with the injury and continues to feel soreness or pain in his calf, which has prevented him from fully ramping up. The team will likely continue to be cautious, as it was also reported Thursday that Trout could return to a corner outfield position rather than center field to try to avoid an aggravation of the issue.
The Angels are considering moving Trout (calf) to a corner-outfield spot when he is able to return to action, J.P. Hoornstra of The Orange County Register reports.
Trout has missed 10 weeks after straining his right calf while running the bases, which has prompted the organization to consider having him shift to either right field or left field in order to reduce the amount of running he'd have to do on defense. Rookie Brandon Marsh has taken over primary center field duties of late, and the team appears to be considering keeping him in the lineup on a near-everyday basis even after Trout returns. While a decision has yet to be finalized, manager Joe Maddon indicated Thursday that the scenario has at least been discussed with the star slugger. "You would think giving him less ground to cover might be wise," Maddon said. "So we'll see how that plays out. I've already broached the subject with him. His thought was originally that he was going to be OK once his leg feels fine but we'll wait and see."
Angels manager Joe Maddon said Trout's evaluation Monday revealed no new injury or a serious setback, but outfielder continues to heal slower than expected from a right calf strain, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Maddon's announcement is positive news for Trout, who was sent in for the evaluation after feeling something in his calf while running over the weekend. A concrete timeline for the superstar outfielder's return from the 60-day injured list hasn't yet been established, but once he resumes full baseball activities, he'll require a minor-league rehab assignment before being activated.
Angels manager Joe Maddon said Trout has been "feeling something" in his strained right calf while running recently and will return to Los Angeles on Monday to be evaluated by a doctor, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
Maddon described the visit with a doctor as a routine checkup, but Trout hasn't run the past three days after recently ramping up his running program. The skipper also indicated whatever the outfielder is feeling isn't believed to be serious, though it's an obvious concern as he appeared to be closing in on his return from the injured list. Trout was expected to begin a rehab assignment in the near future, but those plans will be put on hold until after the results of Monday's examination are announced.
Trout (calf) has not yet received clearance to begin a rehab assignment, the Associated Press reports.
Trout has been ramping up his activity of late and has progressed to running the bases. However, he is not yet ready for game action, and manager Joe Maddon suggested that the organization is taking a cautious approach with the superstar outfielder. "You don't want to hurry something like this. You don't want to push it to the point where he ends up reinjuring it and it becomes chronic," Maddon said. A late-July return is still within reach for Trout, though it wouldn't be surprising if he is held out until early August.
Trout (calf) ran the bases, participated in outfield drills and took swings Thursday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Trout has ramped up his running within the past few days, and he's now progressed to some baseball activity. Though he continues to take steps toward a return, there's still no word on when he will begin a rehab assignment. He should be able to progress quickly through any game action in the minors, so a return in the final days of July could still be realistic.
Trout (calf) ran the bases Tuesday, although not at full speed, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
This was Trout's first time running the bases since landing on the shelf with a right calf strain in mid-May. While the superstar outfielder didn't run at a very high intensity, it still marks an important step toward beginning a rehab assignment. That said, the Angels will likely want to see the 29-year-old run at full speed before he returns to live game action.
Trout (calf) said he ran at 90 percent Monday but still doesn't know when he'll begin a rehab assignment, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Trout recently said he was feeling close to 100 percent, and his effort in running drills Monday echoes that assessment. The 29-year-old has yet to run the bases, and he'll need to do so before embarking on a rehab assignment. He appears to be nearing his return from the injured list, but he'll likely require at least a few rehab outings in the minors before being cleared for big-league action.
Trout (calf) is close to a full recovery, but the outfielder still doesn't have a rehab assignment scheduled, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
While the Angels still haven't determined when Trout could begin a rehab assignment, the fact that he's feeling close to 100 percent indicates the announcement could be coming any day now. Once he is able to start a rehab stint, the star outfielder will likely need to get at least a handful of games under his belt before he's activated. Trout should have a chance to return by the end of July, though it's possible he doesn't get reinstated until the beginning of August.
Manager Joe Maddon said the Angels have yet to decide when Trout (calf) will begin a rehab assignment, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
The Angels' skipper added that Trout will be re-evaluated after continuing his workouts through the All-Star break next week. Having been sidelined since May 17, the outfielder will likely require more than one or two games of rehab, so a late July activation appears to be the best-case scenario for Trout.
Trout (calf) participated in batting practice on the field Monday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Trout was taking swings off a tee last week but has now progressed to batting practice. He only recently resumed baseball activities, so it's a good sign to see him progressing toward live work. The 29-year-old is eligible to be activated off the 60-day injured list right after the All-Star break July 17, and he's expected to be ready to play by that point or soon after.
Trout (calf) took 50 swings off a tee, threw from 90 feet and jogged Tuesday, the Associated Press reports.
Trout isn't eligible to come off the 60-day IL until July 17 and only recently resumed baseball activities. That said, he appears to be headed in a positive direction in his recovery from the strained right calf that sidelined him in mid-May. As long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks, Trout should be ready to return to the Angels' lineup soon after the All-Star break.
Trout (calf) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
The move doesn't have much of an impact on Trout's recovery timeline. He won't be eligible to return until July 17, but that's approximately when he was expected to return anyway. He began swinging in the cage Monday, an important step in is rehab process, but he still has several more steps to go.
Trout (calf) hasn't yet resumed any baseball activities, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Trout was hoping he'd be able to resume running in early June, but general manager Perry Minasian said that the 29-year-old still doesn't have a clear recovery timetable due to his lack of activity. The Angels initially said that the center fielder could return to game action around the All-Star break, but his status should become clearer once he resumes baseball activities.
After another examination, the Angels believe Trout (calf) is about one month away from a return, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Trout still hasn't been cleared to jog, but he was examined Monday and the physician determined that he's recovering at a normal pace. If he stays on track, he should be ready to come off the injured list right after the All-Star break. More information on his timeline should surface as Trout clears more hurdles on the road to recovery.
Trout (calf) is expected to have a clearer return timeline once he's cleared to resume jogging in the coming days, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Trout said following last Monday's workout that he was hoping to get clearance to jog soon, though he's yet to reach that milestone in his recovery as of early Sunday afternoon. Once the superstar outfielder is able to run, a more concrete return timeline should come into focus. At this point, Trout is expected to be out through the All-Star break, though an earlier July return won't necessarily be ruled out if he progresses faster than expected in the coming weeks.
Trout (calf) was pleased with Monday's workout and intends to begin jogging soon, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Trout has yet to be cleared to resume baseball activities, but he continues to make progress from a right calf strain sustained in mid-May. At this point, he remains on track to return shortly after the All-Star break.
Manager Joe Maddon said Saturday that Trout (calf) is likely to remain out until after the All-Star break, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Trout has been on the injured list since suffering a calf strain May 17. Based on Maddon's update, a mid-to-late-July return to the Angels' lineup appears to be the most likely scenario at this point, though that could certainly change depending on how Trout progresses in upcoming weeks.
Trout (calf) is no longer wearing a protective walking boot on his right lower leg, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The 29-year-old has been sporting the walking boot since being diagnosed with a strained right calf about two weeks ago, and it's the first major step in his rehab progress. Trout is expected to be sidelined for at least another month, assuming he remains on his initial recovery timeline of 6-to-8 weeks.
