Mon Sep 2611:32Mike Trout Has A Big Game Sunday
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a home run, an RBI, three runs scored and a walk in the 10-3 blowout win over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday. In the process he extended his modest hitting streak to five games. Amidst another disappointing season for the Angels, the 31-year-old All-Star is slashing .278/.364/.619 with a .983 OPS, 37 home runs, 77 RBI, 79 runs scored and a stolen base in 407 at-bats. The 10-time All-Star is closing out the 2022 season strong, as he's hitting .308 (24-for-78) with nine home runs, 19 RBI and 17 runs scored in 20 games in the month of September so far. He remains a must-start across all fantasy formats in the final stretch of the season.

Mon Sep 1914:25Mike Trout Isn't In Monday's Lineup
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout isn't in the team's starting lineup on Monday for a matchup with the Seattle Mariners and right-hander Logan Gilbert. The 30-year-old is hitting .276 with a .364 on-base percentage, 36 home runs, and a stolen base in 437 plate appearances this season. He'll head to the bench with Magneuris Sierra starting in center field and batting ninth instead. Sierra is hitting .181 this season in 88 plate appearances for the Angels, with a .218 on-base percentage and six stolen bases. Fantasy managers are probably better off looking elsewhere for streaming options in the outfield.

Tue Sep 1300:33Mike Trout Homers In Seventh Consecutive Game Monday
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout continued his impressive streak in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Guardians, going 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a strikeout. Trout crushed a fifth-inning Konnor Pilkington fastball to straightaway center for his 35th HR of the season. More importantly, this was Trout's seventh consecutive game with a long ball, putting him one away from tying the MLB record. The 31-year-old has once again been one of fantasy's most reliable performers, slashing .279/.368/.633 with 69 RBI and one steal.

Sat Sep 1010:11Mike Trout Homers For Fifth Straight Game
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout is on a tear, as he hit his fifth home run in five days on Friday. He was 1-for-4 overall, and his homer was a two-run shot. Not only has Trout gone deep for five straight games, but across his last 15 contests, the superstar is batting .317 with nine bombs and a 1.169 OPS. Even though the 31-year-old missed over a month of baseball with a back and rib injury, he's having a sensational year, slashing .277/.366/.619 with 33 HRs, 69 runs, 64 RBI, and one stolen base over 98 games. Trout's been one of the best all-around fantasy players during his career, and that hasn't changed this season.

Thu Aug 2511:08Mike Trout Resting Thursday
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout appears to be getting a day of rest on Thursday against the Tampa Bay Rays. Trout returned from the injured list last Friday and had played in six straight games, so the Angels are just giving the 31-year-old outfielder a breather. In six games since his return, Trout has gone 7-for-23 (.304) with two home runs, three RBI and two runs scored. It's great to see that his back/ribs injury that had kept him out since July 12 hasn't really affected him since he's been back. Trout will remain a must-start fantasy asset whenever he's on the field. Magneuris Sierra is starting in center field and hitting sixth against Rays right-hander Drew Rasmussen on Thursday. Sierra should be avoided in DFS. He has 13 hits in 69 at-bats and is still searching for his first home run.

Fri Aug 1915:13Mike Trout Back From The Injured List
The Los Angeles Angels activated outfielder Mike Trout (back, ribs) from the injured list on Friday. After facing live pitching earlier this week, Trout was targeting a return on Friday for the start of the team's series against the Detroit Tigers. The 31-year-old superstar missed five weeks of action with a rare back condition, but Trout has downplayed the injury and will hopefully be fine the rest of the way. He'll return to a .270/.368/.599 slash line with a .967 OPS, 24 home runs, 51 RBI, 55 runs scored and a stolen base in 79 games. Fantasy managers need to plug him back into their starting lineups in all formats.

Wed Aug 1711:13Mike Trout Could Return This Week
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout's (back, ribs) return from the injured list appears imminent, and interim manager Phil Nevin wouldn't rule out a return as early as Wednesday. However, it appears more likely that Trout would return against the Detroit Tigers on Friday. He started doing rotational exercises on Aug. 3 and swinging off a tee on Aug. 8. Trout then progressed to soft toss on Aug. 13 and has been throwing and running without issues. The 31-year-old said he felt great after facing live pitching on Monday, so he appears ready to return to the team without going on a minor league rehab assignment. It's great news, as there was a bit of concern that Trout might not even make it back to play in 2022 for a while.

Mon Aug 1519:27Mike Trout Takes Live Batting Practice Monday
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (back, ribs) took live batting practice on Monday, which means he hit against an actual pitcher throwing at game speed. It's the last step necessary before playing in games, but it's unknown if he'll actually go on a minor league rehab assignment. Whether Trout plays in minor league games first will be up to him, according to skipper Phil Nevin. The 31-year-old is getting very close to rejoining the Halos lineup, which should have fantasy managers ecstatic. The 10-time All-Star was hitting .270/.368/.599 with a .967 OPS, 24 home runs, 51 RBI, 55 runs scored and a stolen base in 79 games before his injury, and he'll remain a must-start in fantasy lineups once he returns to the Angels.

Fri Aug 1221:21Mike Trout Plays Catch Friday
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (back) was able to play catch on the field before Friday's game against the Minnesota Twins. Trout recently began hitting off a tee earlier in the week and has now upped his baseball activities even more as he attempts to get back on the field before the end of the season. The Angels have yet to provide a timetable for Trout's return from the injured list but at least he's trending in the right direction. Trout is hitting .270 with 24 homers, 55 runs, 51 RBI, and a steal across 79 games in 2022.

Tue Aug 919:53Mike Trout Begins Hitting Off A Tee
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (back, ribs) started hitting off a tee on Monday. Trout took dry swings over the weekend and progressed to tee work to begin this week. The 31-year-old superstar was sidelined before the All-Star break with a rare back condition that has caused rib-cage inflammation, but he insists that he'll return before the end of the season. However, with the Angels well out of playoff contention yet again, they're unlikely to rush him back into action. Even though he's without a timetable for a return, fantasy managers should continue stashing Trout in an injured list spot in all leagues. Trout is currently hitting .270/.368/.599 with a .967 OPS, 24 home runs, 51 RBI, 55 runs scored and one stolen base in 282 at-bats this year.

Sat Aug 621:41Mike Trout Takes "Dry Swings" On Saturday
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (back) took dry swings Saturday and had no issues. The 30-year-old superstar had been sidelined since the All-Star break due to a rare back called costovertebral dysfunction. He will increase activity, and the Angels will see how he feels afterward. "Everything went well" today, said head athletic trainer Mike Frostad. Trout slashed .270/.368/.599 with a .967 OPS, 24 home runs, 51 RBI, 55 runs scored, and one stolen base in 282 at-bats before landing on the injured list. Trout is trending in the right direction in his recovery, but it remains unclear if he returns to action this season.

Thu Aug 416:43Mike Trout Starts Rotational Exercises
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (back, ribs) started rotational work on Wednesday, which is intended to build him up to the point where he's able to swing, according to head athletic trainer Mike Frostad. However, there is no specific timetable on when he'll resume swinging a bat. The good news is that Trout is progressing as expected. Alarm bells sounded when it was reported that the 30-year-old superstar might be dealing with a chronic back injury, but Trout downplayed the seriousness of his injury and expects to return in 2022. He's been out since July 16, though, and fantasy managers need to remain patient with one of the best players in the game. Before his injury, Trout was slashing .270/.368/.599 with a .967 OPS, 24 home runs, 51 RBI, 55 runs scored and one stolen base in 282 at-bats. Keep him stashed everywhere.

Wed Jul 2721:09Mike Trout Expects To Play Again In 2022
Los Angeles Angels star outfielder Mike Trout (back, ribs) expects to play again in 2022. He continues to battle a condition called costovertebral dysfunction. The 30-year-old said he would play again this year. "I got to stay on top of the routine I do on a daily basis to prevent it from coming back. I feel good where it's at right now. Every day it's improving. I felt really good today," said Trout. The star outfielder is not concerned about his career. Trout has been on the injured list since July 18. The Angels are out of the playoff race and won't rush their star player back. Trout doesn't have a timetable for a return, but fantasy managers should continue to stash him in all leagues for now.

Wed Jul 2715:21Mike Trout Battling Rare Back Condition
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (back, ribs) might need at least one more week for his cortisone shot to take effect before he can ramp up his baseball activity. But there remains long-term uncertainty about when he can return while he battles a rare condition called costovertebral dysfunction. Trout is feeling better, but there's no timeline for his return as he deals with rib-cage inflammation that's creating back pain. Head athletic trainer Mike Frostad said it's something that Trout could have to manage "through the rest of his career probably." The 30-year-old went on the injured list on July 18, and with the Angels now well out of playoff contention, there will be no rush to bring him back prematurely. It's definitely not good news for one of the best players in the game.

Tue Jul 2615:09Mike Trout Remains Day-To-Day While On Injured List
Los Angeles Angels skipper Phil Nevin provided an update on outfielder Mike Trout (ribs) on Tuesday, saying, "Progressing like we think. Basically, it's a lot of rest right now as we manage our way through his IL days. It's just more with these back things ... it's more of a day-to-day thing. I meet with the trainers, I'll meet again later on today." Trout received a cortisone shot last Friday and remains on the injured list without a firm date for a return to action. The struggling Angels would like him back more than anything, but they won't rush one of the best players in baseball. There's still hope that he can return later this week. Brandon Marsh has started each of the team's last four games in center field with Trout sidelined.

Sat Jul 2308:51Mike Trout Could Return Early Next Week
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (rib cage) was placed on the 10-day injured list with rib-cage inflammation right as the league went into the All-Star break. He is eligible to return from the injured list on Saturday, July 23, but he won't be returning when first eligible as he's still at least a few days away. On Friday, July 22, Angels interim manager Phil Nevin stated that Trout was feeling better and that the team was hopeful he'd be back early next week. The 30-year-old has compiled 24 homers, 51 RBI and 55 runs over 79 games this year while slashing .270/.368/.599.

Sun Jul 1717:35Mike Trout Won't Play In All-Star Game
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout (back), who has been out the last four games due to back spasms, will not play in Tuesday's All-Star game in Los Angeles. He's being replaced on the American League roster by Seattle Mariners first baseman Ty France, and Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton will start in Trout's place Tuesday. The three-time AL MVP was scratched from Saturday's lineup against the Los Angeles Dodgers, and he said that his back didn't feel right while swinging in the cages before the game. Trout remains a must-start in fantasy, but he has only one multi-hit game and six RBI in the last three weeks. He'll finish the first half of the season with a .270/.368/.599 slash line, a .967 OPS, 24 home runs, 51 RBI, 55 runs scored and one stolen base in 79 games.
