Mike Trout underwent left hamate surgery. So that’s that. “His timeline for return is four to eight weeks.” I’m not sure if that is a Nevin quote or just something random that MLBTR wrote. This article also doesn’t specify who said that. Anthony Rendon supposedly avoided another trip to the injured list. Dude just can’t stop fouling things off of himself. Here is today’s obligatory “trade Ohtani” article. Shohei has a blister, by the way.
Former Angel Zach Grienke is now on the injured list with shoulder tendonitis. The Mariners just selected the contract of Tommy Milone. And now Dustin May is out for the season. Adam Wainwright went on the IL with shoulder issues as did Clayton Kershaw.
Fortunately, no Angels will be participating in the Home Run Derby this year. It looks like those guys will be vying for some rapper level bling which might someday end up in a pawn shop. Wyatt Mills of the Red Sox just had Tommy John surgery. Nelson Cruz just got designated for assignment. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. (Well, I guess it could.)
The Alek Manoah saga continues. The Jays just called him back up.
