No. 1 positive sign we’d like to see by the end of the 2021 season for the LA Angels: A Mike Trout return
LA Angels Manager Joe Maddon has nothing new on the status of Mike Trout.
His calf injury is healing very slowly, and I have literally no idea what’s going on.
I would think that we’d have a new update now that we’re in the middle of August. He was supposed to be back by the end of this month at the latest. Now with Anthony Rendon suddenly being ruled out for the year, I can only wonder if Trout will receive the same fate.
There’s no way to just assume that, but I really don’t want to see Trout shut down. Not only do I think we can contend for the playoffs if he comes back soon, but I don’t want to see him end this season like this.
He was having one of the best years of his career up until he got injured, and we deserve to see him and this version of Ohtani together.
Angels fans deserve better than what they’ve got this season, but it’s not too late to see some positives happen down the stretch here.
