Mike Trout News
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (wrist) hit off a tee on Friday, and there's still a chance he returns at some point during the final week of the season, although time is running out. Trout returned from the injured list on Aug. 22 after missing 38 games with a fractured left-hamate bone, but he played in just one game before going back on the injured list on Aug. 25. He said he returned too soon and the pain was affecting the way he was swinging the bat, but he said he still expects to return in 2023. Further testing on his hand on Sept. 4 showed no structural damage. In yet another season that will end with no trip to the postseason for the 32-year-old, Trout is hitting .263/.367/.490 with 18 home runs, 44 RBI and 54 runs scored in 308 at-bats.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (wrist) is traveling with the team on their current road trip and will starting swinging a bat soon. The 11-time All-Star didn't have any setbacks while taking dry swings earlier this month, so he's now ready to take the next step with an eye on returning to close out the 2023 campaign in yet another season that will end without a playoff appearance for the superstar outfielder. Trout fractured his left hamate bone in early July and returned from the injured list on Aug. 22, but he played in just one game before experiencing soreness in his hand/wrist and going back on the IL. Even if the 32-year-old is able to return in the final weeks of the season, there won't be much time for him to make an impact in fantasy.
USA Today's Bob Nightengale hears that "the Los Angeles Angels, perhaps for the first time, are open to trading All-Star outfielder Mike Trout (wrist) if he indicates to them that he wants out". Nightengale also reports that "Trout wants to have a private conversation with the front office and ownership about their direction". While it remains to be see if the Angels can retain impending free agent Shohei Ohtani this winter, they may be willing to explore what the trade market has to offer for their oft-injured 32-year-old superstar. But as Nightengale also notes, Trout owns a full no-trade clause and wouldn't land the Angels the same compensation he may have once demanded since he will have missed 249 games in the last three years if he remains out for 2023. The three-time MVP still holds seven years left on his deal, so he may turn out to be a tough sell despite slashing .283/.382/.579 with 66 home runs, 59 doubles, 142 RBI, and 162 runs scored in 237 games since 2021.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout has plenty of elite fantasy upside heading into next season. The 31-year-old isn't stealing bases like he used to but still hit .283 last season with a .369 on-base percentage, 40 home runs, and stolen base in 499 plate appearances this past season. As per usual, Trout was elite in terms of most underlying metrics, finishing in the 96th percentile or better in hard-hit rate, xwOBA, barrel rate, and xSLG. Pair the ability to make elite contact with an improved Angels roster that should help with counting stats like RBI and runs scored, and you have a recipe for a potentially league-winning fantasy season. Anthony Rendon will return to the Angels lineup next season, which will also welcome offseason additions Hunter Renfroe and Gio Urshela, positioning Trout for yet another potentially elite fantasy season.
