Trout (thumb) has been hitting off a tee for the past two days, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's another positive step in his rehabilitation program and a further indication he could begin a rehab assignment within the coming weeks. Trout is recovering from a torn UCL in his left thumb which normally requires 6-to-8 weeks of healing, but he said he's aiming to return just prior to the All-Star break, though a timetable should become clear in the near future.

Trout (thumb) is set to resume swinging during the Angels' upcoming road trip this week, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is an encouraging development for Trout as he works his way back from thumb surgery. He'll travel with the team for their trip to the east coast which will consist of series in New York and Boston. The expectation is that he'll begin taking swings early in the week, and how his thumb responds to the increased activity should provide a glimpse into how realistic a pre-All-Star break return could be.

Trout (thumb) believes that he may be able to return prior to the All-Star Game on July 11, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

When Trout underwent surgery on May 31 to repair a torn UCL in his left thumb, he was given a 6-to-8 week recovery timeline. If the superstar center fielder is indeed able to return prior to the All-Star break, that would put him one day short of a six-week timeline. It's unclear if he'll truly be able to return at that point, but it's foolish to bet against Mike Trout.

Trout will wear a stabilizer on his surgically-repaired thumb once he returns from the DL, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Trout, who is scheduled to have his cast removed Sunday, will only need to wear the attachment when he is on the base paths -- a wise precaution considering the superstar outfielder suffered his initial sprain when he jammed it on a stolen base attempt. The 25-year-old has made a name for himself as an aggressive baserunner and swiped 30 bags last season, so don't expect too much of a decline once he gets back to full strength.

Trout underwent successful surgery to repair his dorsal capsule as well as the ulnar collateral ligament of his left thumb, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Trout is expected to be sidelined for 6-to-8 weeks while recovering from the injury. Cameron Maybin (side) is expected to see the bulk of playing time in center field while Trout is sidelined. If this timeline holds, Trout could return sometime between All-Star break and early-August.

Trout will undergo surgery Wednesday on the torn UCL in his left thumb and will miss 6-8 weeks.

EDGE Analysis

Trout was placed on the 10-day disabled list with the thumb injury on Monday. There was still some slight hope that he would be able to avoid surgery and miss just a couple of weeks, but the outfielder and club have elected to take the safe route and undergo the procedure. The 6-8 week timeline suggested would place Trout's return around the All-Star break at the earliest, and perhaps around early August at the latest.

Trout has a torn ligament in his left thumb and may require surgery, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Angels called up Eric Young Jr. to start in the outfield Monday night, the first sign that Trout's injury was going to be major enough to keep him out for a significant period of time. Trout would likely require five to eight weeks to recover from surgery, making this terrible news for both fantasy owners and the Angels' chances this season.

Trout (thumb) is not in Monday's lineup against the Braves, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

While he still awaits MRI results on his thumb, Trout will watch Monday's series opener from the sidelines. His timetable for return should become clearer once the results of his MRI are known.

Trout sprained his thumb Sunday against the Marlins and should be considered day-to-day.

EDGE Analysis

X-rays on Trout's thumb came back negative, which is good news, but the results of an MRI will indicate how severe of a sprain he's dealing with. As such, the star center fielder's timetable for returning to action remains unclear until the team releases the MRI results. Look for a status update on Trout prior to the start of Monday night's series opener against the Braves.

Trout left Sunday's game due to an apparent hand or thumb injury, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Any potential absence for Trout would be devastating for fantasy owners counting on his MVP-caliber production, but stay tuned for more information before hitting the panic button just yet. In the meantime, Ben Revere will enter the game in his place. Trout had been 0-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout prior to exiting.
