Mike Trout slated to return to Angels' lineup Friday

Mike Trout slated to return to Angels' lineup Friday”

The Los Angeles Angels will head into the All-Star break sporting a somewhat surprising 45-47 record.

Trout has been out since May 28, when he tore a ligament in his left thumb while sliding headfirst into second base. The reigning American League Most Valuable Player closed out his time at High-A Inland Empire with a triple on Sunday. A six-time All-Star, including 2017, he is also a two-time American League MVP, two-time All-Star Game MVP, former American League Rookie of the Year and five-time Silver Slugger Award victor. It was the sixth consecutive All-Star nod for the 2012 AL Rookie of the Year.

Trout was batting.337 with 16 homers, 36 RBIs and 1.203 OPS in 47 games before he was injured. His on-base percentage and slugging percentage both would lead the league if he had enough at-bats to qualify.

Trout was in the midst of yet another MVP-caliber season when he was hurt. He played at least 157 games each year from 2013-16 after appearing in 139 games in 2012. The Angels announced last week that Trout wouldn't attempt to play in Miami. They remained right around the.500 mark in his absence, going 19-20.
