Angels' Mike Trout: Hits off tee
Trout (wrist) hit off a tee Friday, per MLB.com.
Trout is accompanying the Angels on their current road trip and had been taking dry swings for about two weeks before progressing to hitting off a tee Friday. Neither Trout nor the team has closed the door on him returning to game action before the end of the campaign, though he's played in only one game since July 3 and wouldn't have time for a rehab assignment. Trout's return could provide the Angels with an end-of-season morale boost, but it wouldn't serve much of a purpose in the standings since the team has already been eliminated from postseason contention....

Angels' Mike Trout: Joining team for road trip
Trout (wrist) will join the Angels' for their six-game road trip this week and will start swinging the bat soon, Erica Weston of Bally Sports West reports.
Angels manager Phil Nevin said earlier this month that Trout had resumed holding the bat and taking dry swings, and with the 11-time All-Star apparently having suffered no setbacks while doing so, he's poised to take the next step forward in his rehab by hitting off a tee and eventually taking batting practice. Trout doesn't look like he'll have enough time to head out on a rehab assignment before the minor-league season comes to a close, but he should still have the opportunity to test the health of his fractured left wrist by facing off against a pitching machine or playing in simulated games. Even though the Angels are out of playoff contention, the club is still keeping the door open for Trout to return from the 10-day injured list before the season ends.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mike Trout: Showing improvement
Trout (wrist) has been holding a bat and taking dry swings without feeling much soreness for about a week, Sarah Valenzuela of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Trout is recovering from a hamate bone fracture in his left wrist that originally landed him on the injured list in early July. His attempt to return Aug. 22 was probably ill-advised, as he ended up going back on the IL with lingering soreness the following day. Trout has indicated that he wants to return to action this season, though the Angels may opt to shut him down at some point given that they've fallen out of postseason contention.... See More ...

Angels' Mike Trout: Intends to play again this season
Trout had additional tests on his injured left wrist Sunday that revealed no structural damage, and he indicated that he still plans to return this season, MLB.com reports.
Trout missed 38 games due to a fractured left hamate bone before he was activated from the injured list Aug. 22. He was able to play in only one contest before going back on the IL, and he's since acknowledged that he returned too soon, as pain was still affecting his swing. Despite the fact that the Angels have fallen out of playoff contention, Trout indicated that he expects to return before the end of the campaign, though the organization will also have a say in that matter. Since testing Sunday revealed no structural damage, pain tolerance will be the main factor determining when Trout can start swinging a bat again.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mike Trout: Officially back on IL
Trout (wrist) was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a left hamate fracture.
Trout lasted just one game on the Angels' active roster before returning to the IL due to continued soreness in his surgically repaired left wrist. He will be shut down for 10 days and the hope is that he can make it back at some point before the end of the season. That's no guarantee, though, especially with the Angels all but out of the playoff picture at this point. Mickey Moniak will be the club's primary center fielder while Trout is out.... See More ...

Angels' Mike Trout: Headed back to IL
The Angels intend to place Trout (wrist) back on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Greg Beacham of The Associated Press reports.
Trout initially landed on the IL in early July due to a hamate bone fracture in his left wrist and was activated Tuesday. The 32-year-old outfielder then sat out both games of Wednesday's doubleheader due to lingering soreness in his wrist and will now find himself back on the IL. General manager Perry Minasian said Trout will be completely shut down for the next 10 days, but Minasian is hopeful that Trout will be able to return before the end of the season. However, the Angels may not be in a rush to bring him back if they are eliminated from playoff contention while Trout is out.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mike Trout: Remains out for Game 2
Trout (wrist) isn't in the Angels' lineup for the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Reds, Erica Weston of Bally Sports West reports.
Trout was held out of Game 1 due to lingering wrist soreness, and he'll now officially sit out both halves of Wednesday's twin bill. Mickey Moniak will fill in for Trout in center field and bat sixth.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mike Trout: Sits with lingering wrist soreness
Trout (wrist) is not in the lineup for the first half of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Reds, Sarah Valenzuela of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Trout experienced lingering soreness in his surgically repaired left wrist after returning to the lineup Tuesday following a six-week stay on the injured list. He reportedly doesn't face any risk of a re-injury, but the 32-year-old superstar might have to play through some pain for a bit and could require regular days off as he rounds back into full strength. Randal Grichuk, Mickey Moniak and Hunter Renfroe are starting across the outfield for the Angels in the first half of Wednesday's twin bill. The Angels haven't ruled out Trout from starting during the nightcap.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mike Trout: Activated Tuesday
Trout (wrist) was activated from the 10-day injured and is batting second Tuesday against the Reds, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Trout says he is still dealing with soreness, but he felt the urgency to return with time running out on the season. It sounds like he'll be playing injured and playing regularly, but those plans could change if and when the Angels are officially eliminated from the AL Wild Card picture.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mike Trout: Could return Tuesday
Angels manager Phil Nevin said Trout (wrist) could be activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Tuesday's game against the Reds, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
Trout could have returned Monday, but he will have to wait at least one more day after the Angels' scheduled matchup with the Reds was postponed due to effects of Hurricane Hilary on the West Coast. Nevin didn't guarantee that Trout would be activated Tuesday, but fellow outfielder Jordyn Adams was optioned Sunday. With that in mind, if all checks out with Trout's wrist when he's re-evaluated Tuesday, it seems more likely than not that he will rejoin the roster ahead of the series opener with Cincinnati....

Angels' Mike Trout: Monday return likely
Trout (wrist) could be activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Monday's series opener against the Reds, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
The Angels optioned Jordyn Adams to Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday, and as Blum notes, the move seemingly paves the way for Trout to return to action. Trout already appeared to be close to returning after taking swings in an indoor batting cage over the weekend, and the Adams demotion is another strong sign that the star center fielder is ready to be activated. Fantasy managers in weekly lineup leagues should plan accordingly.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mike Trout: Moving closer to return
Trout (wrist) took swings in an indoor batting cage Saturday and is "very close to returning," per the Associated Press.
Trout progressed to facing live pitching Thursday and experienced some soreness afterward, but he went right back to swinging a bat Saturday. That bodes well for his chances of being activated from the injured list in the near future, perhaps as soon as Monday, when the Angels are slated to start a three-game home set versus Cincinnati. The team is taking a "wait-and-see" approach with Trout for the time being, per MLB.com, with manager Phil Nevin calling the slugger's status "a day-to-day thing."... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mike Trout: Advances to live BP
Trout (wrist) faced live pitching Thursday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
It was his first time doing so since he fractured the hamate bone in his left wrist in early July. Trout was still experiencing some lingering discomfort as of Tuesday, but Fletcher notes that the 32-year-old outfielder could be activated from the injured list "any day now" -- maybe after just a couple more live BP workouts....

Angels' Mike Trout: Could face live pitching soon
Trout (wrist) may begin facing live pitching this week, per MLB.com.
Trout has been hitting off a machine for about a week, and it now appears that he's on the verge of facing live pitching for the first time since suffering a hamate bone fracture in his left wrist in early July. The star outfielder recently said that he's still feeling pain in the wrist but expressed optimism in his progress and indicated that he believes he's getting closer to returning to the field. The Angels have been patient with Trout's recovery, though they could certainly use the boost that his return to the lineup would bring, as the team currently sits seven games out of a wild-card spot in the American League....

Angels' Mike Trout: Still no timeline for return
Trout still has some pain in his left wrist and remains without a timetable for a return, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Trout has made progress in his recovery from a hamate bone fracture over the first half of August, moving from dry swings to hitting soft toss before advancing to taking contact swings against a pitching machine. However, he indicated Monday that he's not yet hitting full-velocity pitches and that he's still experiencing some pain, though he added that he's experiencing daily improvement. The Angels currently sit seven games out of a wild-card spot in the American League and could certainly use Trout's bat in the lineup, but they are unlikely to rush him back into action. Jalyn Smoot of MLB.com reports that the superstar outfielder's return will depend on pain tolerance and that Trout feels that he's getting closer to getting back on the field. "I'm feeling better every day," Trout said. "I'm getting more confident with my swing. Once it gets to a point where the pain is bearable, I'll be out there."... See More ... See Less
