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.
Angels superstar Mike Trout continues to be excellent at baseball, but the shape of his greatness appears to be changing. He hit .281/.390/.603 with 17 long balls over 241 PAs in 2020, but fantasy managers may have wanted more than one steal and a higher average. His Statcast Sprint Speed declined slightly (28.9 ft./sec vs. 29.3 in 2019), and Trout's defensive metrics have indicated some loss of athleticism for two years now. As such, his days of 30+ steals are probably over. Trout's 23.2 K% was a career-worst, but his 17.4% chase rate was a career-best while his 6.4 SwStr% matched 2019. In short, Trout appears poised for favorable batting average regression. Trout is also adapting by becoming even more of a power hitter. His career FB% is 41.2, but he crushed that mark in both 2019 (49.2%) and 2020 (50.3%). His Statcast contact quality metrics are excellent (96.1 mph average airborne exit velocity, 15% Brls/BBE in 2020), so more fly balls are generally good for his fantasy performance. Trout may not be the five-category threat he once was, but the combination of a strong average with elite OBP, HR, and counting stats should still have the 29-year-old in the conversation for the first overall pick. His current ADP of 6.03 is a steal.
