Mike Trout News
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (calf) was "pleased" with his workout on Monday. The former MVP also reported that he "intends to begin jogging soon," a good sign as he continues to work his way back from a Grade 2 calf strain. The slugger has been on the shelf since mid-May and is expected to return sometime in July, although fantasy managers will likely continue to hope he can return sooner.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (calf) is without a timetable for his return, according to manager Joe Maddon. The superstar outfielder has been on the injured list since the middle of May. He suffered a Grade 2 calf strain, so the Angels aren't going to rush him back onto the field. Hopefully, Trout will be back on the field after the All-Star break. Until then, fantasy managers should continue stashing Trout on their roster and being hopeful that he'll return within the next month or so.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (calf) is moving in the right direction. The former MVP is no longer wearing a walking boot, a good sign as he continues to work his way back from a Grade 2 calf strain. The slugger has been out since Mid-May but isn't expected back until July. Nonetheless, fantasy managers obviously should continue to make room for him on the roster at all costs.
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.
