With the LA Angels season over, we haven't been hearing a ton from our favorite players these past couple of months.
However, Angels GM Perry Minasian gave us the scoop on how the great Mike Trout is doing these days:
It's great to hear that Trout is doing as well as he is, and it's important to hear that he's already working out. Remember, his target date is to come back for spring training. That looks pretty doable at this point.
And it's also great that Trout is recruiting for the Angels. He's the one that's been screwed over by this front office more than anyone, so having him help out however he can is important.
It's in Mike Trout's best interest to keep recruiting free agents to the LA Angels.
Mike Trout is doing what's best for his injury recovery (and hasn't experienced any new issues with his calf), and he's doing what's best for his career as a potential winner by recruiting guys to the LA Angels.
Don't think that Trout's recruiting is working? Think again. Minasian even gave reporters an example of it specifically working on arguably the best move of the offseason for the Angels:
Getting help from Trout when it came to re-signing Raisel Iglesias is yet another reason to love him. It's also interesting that Michael Lorenzen was already recruiting Iglesias as well, but not too surprising when remembering that Lorenzen and Iglesias were teammates in Cincinnati from 2015 to 2020.
Now with the MLB lockout going on, Trout will have even more time to help the front office prepare to land some major free agents. There are plenty still on the board, and a lot of players would love the chance to play with a guy like Trout.
Trout's got plenty to recruit players with. Playing for the Angels is a chance to play with the two best players in the game, and a chance to live in either beautiful Orange County or beautiful Los Angeles. If Trout sticks with it, we're going to have a successful offseason.
