Mike Trout News
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (calf) is unlikely to return to the field this year, according to Angels manager Joe Maddon. Speaking to the media on Wednesday, Maddon said that he would be "very surprised" if Trout made it back this year. The update isn't very surprising to hear, but it's the most clarity we've received on Trout in quite some time. The three-time MVP has been out since May 18 with a right calf strain. He played in just 36 games this year and slashed .333/.466/.624 with eight home runs, 18 RBI and 23 runs. His 1.090 OPS on the year was a career-high mark, just slightly higher than his previous career-high of 1.088 in 2018. Expect for him to be one of the first players off the board in all fantasy drafts once again next spring.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (calf) continues to deal with lingering soreness, according to manager Joe Maddon. The Angels manager added that the organization is getting closer to a final decision on Trout's status. He has been sidelined since mid-May due to a calf issue. Trout is pushing to play, but we'll see if the Angels actually allow it. Fantasy managers should continue to hold him, but the chances of him returning decrease every day.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (calf) remains without a timetable to return, according to head coach Joe Maddon. He has been able to do some daily workouts, but the organization has not scheduled a rehab assignment. Trout has been sidelined since mid-May due to a Grade 2 right calf strain. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect him back in the lineup until at least early September at the earliest.
Calling Mike Trout great is boring at this point, and his stellar 2021 season should do nothing to change that: .333/.466/.624 with eight homers and a pair of steals in just 146 PAs. However, his detractors may find something to hold against the 30-year-old for the first time in his career. A right calf strain cost Trout roughly three-quarters of the season, though reports indicate that Trout could've come back if the Angels were still in the race and he was expected to have a healthy offseason. A big jump in SwStr% (6.4 in 2020, 10.2 last year) and K% (23.2 to 28.1) may cause more concern, especially since a .456 BABIP masked the impact of those strikeouts on his batting average. Still, Trout also improved his contact quality by adding a tick and a half to his average airborne exit velocity (from 96.1 to 97.8 mph) and boosting his rate of Brls/BBE from 15% to 18.4%. The net result was a .300 xBA, .571 xSLG, and a .423 xwOBA that ranked fourth in MLB among players with at least 50 batted ball events. It seems likely that Trout adjusted his approach to do more damage, and it's working. Locked into the heart of a lineup that also includes defending AL MVP Shohei Ohtani and Anthony Rendon, Trout is an easy first-round talent that often finds himself going in the second with a 15.44 ADP. That's absurd and gives fantasy managers substantial profit potential.
