  • Mike Trout Takes "Dry Swings" On Saturday

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (back) took dry swings Saturday and had no issues. The 30-year-old superstar had been sidelined since the All-Star break due to a rare back called costovertebral dysfunction. He will increase activity, and the Angels will see how he feels afterward. "Everything went well" today, said head athletic trainer Mike Frostad. Trout slashed .270/.368/.599 with a .967 OPS, 24 home runs, 51 RBI, 55 runs scored, and one stolen base in 282 at-bats before landing on the injured list. Trout is trending in the right direction in his recovery, but it remains unclear if he returns to action this season.

  • Mike Trout Starts Rotational Exercises

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (back, ribs) started rotational work on Wednesday, which is intended to build him up to the point where he's able to swing, according to head athletic trainer Mike Frostad. However, there is no specific timetable on when he'll resume swinging a bat. The good news is that Trout is progressing as expected. Alarm bells sounded when it was reported that the 30-year-old superstar might be dealing with a chronic back injury, but Trout downplayed the seriousness of his injury and expects to return in 2022. He's been out since July 16, though, and fantasy managers need to remain patient with one of the best players in the game. Before his injury, Trout was slashing .270/.368/.599 with a .967 OPS, 24 home runs, 51 RBI, 55 runs scored and one stolen base in 282 at-bats. Keep him stashed everywhere.

  • Mike Trout Expects To Play Again In 2022

    Los Angeles Angels star outfielder Mike Trout (back, ribs) expects to play again in 2022. He continues to battle a condition called costovertebral dysfunction. The 30-year-old said he would play again this year. "I got to stay on top of the routine I do on a daily basis to prevent it from coming back. I feel good where it's at right now. Every day it's improving. I felt really good today," said Trout. The star outfielder is not concerned about his career. Trout has been on the injured list since July 18. The Angels are out of the playoff race and won't rush their star player back. Trout doesn't have a timetable for a return, but fantasy managers should continue to stash him in all leagues for now.

  • Mike Trout Battling Rare Back Condition

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (back, ribs) might need at least one more week for his cortisone shot to take effect before he can ramp up his baseball activity. But there remains long-term uncertainty about when he can return while he battles a rare condition called costovertebral dysfunction. Trout is feeling better, but there's no timeline for his return as he deals with rib-cage inflammation that's creating back pain. Head athletic trainer Mike Frostad said it's something that Trout could have to manage "through the rest of his career probably." The 30-year-old went on the injured list on July 18, and with the Angels now well out of playoff contention, there will be no rush to bring him back prematurely. It's definitely not good news for one of the best players in the game.

  • Mike Trout Remains Day-To-Day While On Injured List

    Los Angeles Angels skipper Phil Nevin provided an update on outfielder Mike Trout (ribs) on Tuesday, saying, "Progressing like we think. Basically, it's a lot of rest right now as we manage our way through his IL days. It's just more with these back things ... it's more of a day-to-day thing. I meet with the trainers, I'll meet again later on today." Trout received a cortisone shot last Friday and remains on the injured list without a firm date for a return to action. The struggling Angels would like him back more than anything, but they won't rush one of the best players in baseball. There's still hope that he can return later this week. Brandon Marsh has started each of the team's last four games in center field with Trout sidelined.

  • Mike Trout Receives Cortisone Shot, Won't Return Monday

    Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (back) will not be ready to return by Monday, the day he is eligible to return from the IL. Trout received a cortisone shot in his back a few days ago and won't be up to speed at the start of the new week. His timeline after that is unknown right now, but he should hopefully be ready to return later in the week. Trout has managed to stay healthier this season than he has the past few, but has started to deal with the injury bug again recently. Fantasy managers need Trout to stay healthy, as there is simply no replacement for his .270/.368/.599 slash line.
