2022 Gatorade All-Star Workout Day


Mike Trout provided a very promising health update that allowed all Los Angeles Angels fans to relax. Trout has missed a few games with a back injury that has resulted in troubling reports. The most severe of these reports indicated that this would be a career altering, perhaps even a career-ending, injury.

This is thankfully not the case for the Angels star outfielder, who hopes to be back in action soon. With a fast-paced rehabilitation set out by his doctor, he may be able to get back swinging by next week. Rhett Bollinger shared comments from Trout which updated us on his condition.

“It went from my career is over to now hopefully I’m going to play here soon,” Trout said with a laugh about the whirlwind over his back the last week

To say this came as a relief would be a huge understatement. Angels fans have not had much to cheer for this season outside of their stars Shohei Ohtani and Trout. Had they lost Trout for the remainder of the season, or potentially longer, they would have been inconsolable.

Trout spoke with Bally Sports West in the Los Angeles Angels clubhouse today where he provided further insight into his rehabilitation.

This is the best news that Los Angeles Angels fans could have hoped for. While their playoff odds aren’t great for the rest of the season, at least they know one of their star players will be okay.

Trout has been one of the best players in the MLB since winning Rookie of the Year in 2012. Since then, he has racked up 10 All-Star selections, three MVP’s, and eight Silver Slugger awards. These numbers are practically unheard of.

Nevertheless, the Angels have not won a playoff game. Fans hoped the pairing of Trout and Ohtani would finally be able to get past that hurdle, but it seems unlikely this season. Trout has been the best player on the struggling Los Angeles Angels for so long that fans were not remotely surprised by his recent injury.

Mike Trout has been carrying a franchise for 11 years on his back. He doesn’t need to explain any back injury to me.
