Adell is feeling good in his recovery from hamstring and ankle injuries and will begin a running program next week, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Adell has been battling a pair of injuries since early March. His initial timeline was estimated at 10-to-12 weeks, but the Angels are expected to be cautious with the highly-rated prospect.
Adell (ankle/hamstring) has been taking swings and feels great, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.
He strained his left hamstring and also sprained his right ankle during spring training. Per Torres, the Angels expected it would take 10-to-12 weeks for Adell to return to action in the minor leagues. While he hasn't taken batting practice against pitchers or played in games, the Angels are encouraged by the pace of his recovery.
Adell (hamstring, ankle) was reassigned to minor-league camp Friday.
Adell got to spend the first part of camp with the big-league club but wasn't under consideration to break camp with the team. For now, his focus is on returning from a strained hamstring and sprained ankle. He could get into game action at the minor-league level at some point in May and could push to make his debut later in the year.
Adell was diagnosed with a Grade 1 left hamstring strain and a Grade 2 right ankle sprain after undergoing an MRI on Sunday, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports. He's expected to miss 10-to-12 weeks as a result of the injuries.
Though Adell was unlikely to make an impact for the big club in 2019 as anything more than a late-season callup, the significant health setback now makes that possibility even more unlikely. Assuming Adell experiences a normal recovery from both injuries, he should retain his status as the Angels' No. 1 prospect and one of the top outfield prospects in all of baseball. The timeline provided by doctors suggests Adell won't be ready for game action until late May at the earliest.
Adell will undergo an MRI on his hamstring and ankle Sunday, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Adell hurt both his right ankle and left hamstring while running the bases Saturday. He was spotted on crutches following the game. The severity of his injuries should become clearer following the test.
