ANAHEIM, California – Slugger Mike Trout is hoping to return to the Los Angeles Angels shortly after the all-star break.

Before Trout defeated the Angels 8: 7 over the Baltimore Orioles, he started playing with a run and run, shaking the bat a few days ago.

AL missed 40 games by MVP time. He made the list of injured after breaking his right leg on the night of May 18 against the Cleveland Indians. At the time, the angels said Trout would miss six to eight weeks.

“Mentally, it was great to just be able to do something and not have to worry about it,” Trout said. “It’s still a return to power. As the tissue grows, it aims to restore mobility. ”

Trout, who has been in the 60-day IL, could return on July 17, when the Angels will host Seattle in their second game after the break.

The trout doesn’t feel any discomfort when shaking, but hasn’t switched to running at full speed. He also doesn’t yet carry balls that fly off the field or control bases. The biggest positive change for him is that there have been no failures in his recovery.

“I think the last thing for me to come back is that it works. I need to work at full speed and without any pain. The last thing I want is to come back too early and tear it up again, ”he said.

Despite a long absence, Trout was voted in for the eighth time as the starter of the Star Game. This was his ninth overall choice. At the time of his injury, he hit .333 with eight homers and 18 RBIs. He said whether or not he will attend the All-Star Festival in Acesparks.

Manager Joe Maddon had hoped the Angels would play .500 balls until the trout returned, but they exceeded that expectation a bit. Los Angeles came into the game Friday with a 39-41 record, but Trout has been 21-19 since he left for IL.

“It will be interesting to get him back with all the growth in the team. A lot of the kids got a lot of playing time and got better, ”Maddon said.
