Los Angeles Angels star Mike Trout doesn’t have timetable for return

Mike Trout says his right calf is starting to feel better, but the Los Angeles Angels superstar still doesn’t know when he will be able to return.

The time-time AL MVP went on the injured list on May 18 after straining his calf the night before versus the Cleveland Indians. The Angels said at the time that Trout would miss six to eight weeks, which would sideline him through the All-Star break.

“Today was probably my best day yet, just tolerance-wise. As far as activities, I’m doing as much as I can to strengthen around the calf muscle,” Trout said before Monday’s game versus the Kansas City Royals.

Trout said he would like to start jogging soon but doesn’t have a timetable on when he would be able to do that, much less resume baseball activities. He said he is walking on a treadmill but not with any intensity.

“I’m happy with my progress so far. It has been good the last couple of days,” he said. “I should have a better idea on a return date once I start moving around, as in jogging and running.”

At the time of his injury, Trout was leading the majors in on-base percentage (.466) and OPS (1.090), with eight home runs and 18 RBI. His .425 batting average in April was the best of his 11-year career.

Juan Lagares has started in center field in 16 of the 19 games that Trout has missed, with Taylor Ward starting the other three.

Lagares and Ward have combined to go 13 of 70 with no homers and seven RBI in games they have started in center.

Los Angeles is 9-10 since Trout went on the IL. It went into Monday’s game trailing Oakland by seven games in the AL West.

Trout said during home games he usually watches the first couple innings from the dugout before going into the clubhouse to continue his rehab. He also continues to attend hitter’s meetings.

“It seems like there are games where we score a bunch of runs and then the next game it is pretty quiet,” he said. “It’s tough being on the bench. You know, there’s only so much you can do and you want to be out there.”

Kansas City Royals vs New York Yankees

MLB Baseball: Monday, May 9, 2016 at 7:05 pm (Yankee Stadium)C Young (1-4) (5.76) vs. I Nova (1-1) (5.14)
The Line: New York Yankees -110 / Kansas City Royals +100

The Yankees opened a four-game series against the World Series champion Kansas City Royals with a 6-3 win on Monday at Yankee Stadium.

By now, Masahiro Tanaka has gotten used to pitching under pressure while the New York Yankees lineup continually provides him with little run support.

Tanaka insists he’s only going to worry about doing his part on the mound.

After Carlos Beltran led an offensive awakening, the right-hander will try to pick up a rare victory as the hosts go after their fourth win in five games Tuesday night against the struggling Kansas City Royals.

The Royals look to rebound after a 5-4 loss on the road in Cleveland yesterday as they continue their trip to the Bronx to take on the struggling Yankees who are off to a terrible start in the AL East. The Royals are the defending champions and favourites to once again lay claim to the AL Central crown but they have some work to do as they are 15-15 in their first 30 games and haven’t quite looked like the team many expected to see this season. Kansas City will send Chris Young to the mound who will look to improve on his shaky 1-4 start as he matches up with Ivan Nova who is 1-1 with a 5.14 ERA through his first few starts of the season.
Kansas City’s Kris Medlen (1-3, 6.85) has been brutal in two home starts, but he’s 1-1 with a 2.16 ERA in three on the road. He’ll try to regroup after the first six batters he faced scored and he didn’t get an out until his 38th pitch on Wednesday.

The Yankees have had a very slow start to the year and don’t really look like they are going to make significant progress any time soon, though they did welcome Aroldis Chapman to the team who will look to make an immediate impact with one of the league’s most daunting bullpens. The Yanks are 11-17 so far this season and while they are still in the mix thanks to a lackluster beginning from most of the other AL East opponents it looks like it could be a long season in the Big Apple for the Pinstripers as they are an aging group with a lackluster rotation.

The Royals are 15-6 in their last 21 games following a loss, 4-1 in Young’s last five starts when the team allows 5+ runs in their previous outing, but are 2-8 in their last 10 road games against a righty. The Yankees meanwhile are 1-5 in Nova’s last six home starts, 3-8 in their last 11 overall, and 5-12 in their last 17 when scoring two runs or less in their previous outing.
Although Tanaka (1-0, 2.29 ERA) has limited opponents to two earned runs or less in each of his six outings, victories have been tough to come by for the 27-year-old with a 2.75 run support average that ranks near the bottom of the majors.

The Kansas City look to reverse their fortunes at Safeco against the Seattle Mariners.

The Kansas City Royals suffered an uncharacteristic sweep at the Angels capped off by a 4-2 loss on Wednesday. The Royals began well enough with a 2-0 first inning lead but the offense was held in check after that and the pitching needed more help. KC starter Chris Young gave up three runs on three hits including a pair of long balls over 5.1 frames to fall to 1-4. Kansas City mustered ten hits and walked three times with Eric Hosmer blasting a two run bomb that scored Mike Moustakas. Kansas City sends Kris Medlen to the hill to face the Mariners for the first time in his career. Medlen is coming off of an 8-3 loss to the Orioles where he was charged with seven runs on 9 hits and three BB in 3.2 innings.

The Seattle Mariners have been playing their best baseball of the season with both the arms and bats generally on the same page. The Mariners had won six of seven before falling to Houston by a 7-4 count on Wednesday. M’s starter Hisashi Iwakuma had a rare off night with five runs allowed on seven hits and two walks while whiffing seven through five innings to remain winless at 0-3. The Mariners totaled ten hits and walked three times with Robinson Cano going 2-5 with a homer and three RBI’s while Adam Lind was 2-4 with a solo blast. Felix Hernandez toes the rubber hoping for some support from the Mariners offense when he opposes the Royals on Friday. Hernandez took a 4-2 loss at the Angels last time out with three runs scored on five hits including two homers in seven frames.

These two teams had some different routes to this Fall Classic, however. The Mets made quick work of the Cubs in the NLCScompleting the four-game sweep, while the Royals had a little bit more work to do disposing of the Blue Jays, but ultimately got it done in six-games.

This is the first World Series ever that at least one of the teams is not one of the original 16 franchises.

Both of these teams have a significant amount of time off before this series gets going on Tuesday, so it will be interesting to see how these teams respond. Most of the champagne should have worn off by Tuesday. The Mets last played on Wednesday while the Royals last played Friday.

With the American League winning the All Star Game, they will have home field advantage which means games one, two, six* and seven* will be played in Kansas City while games three, four, and five* will be played at Citi Field in New York. (* if necessary). All games start at 8:00 p.m. EST

Game 1, Oct. 27: New York at Kansas City

The Jays, who were blown out by the Kansas City Royals in Game 4 of the American League, now need to win three straight games to make it to the World Series. That battle starts today at the Rogers Centre at 4 p.m. ET.

Great pitching and a potent offense led the Kansas City Royals to a 14-2 win at the Rogers Centre and a 3-2 lead in the ALCS. Starter Chris Young gave up both runs on three hits over 4.2 frames before four relievers held the Blue Jays off the scoreboard. The KC offense did the rest with a 15 hit, five walk attack that saw Alex Rios go solo with Ben Zobrist going deep and driving in two and scoring twice. Alcides Escobar and Lorenzo Cain combined for seven RBI’s as every starter drove in runs or scored. Edinson Volquez shoots for his second win of the ALCS against the Blue Jays Wednesday. Volquez defeated Toronto 5-0 on two hits and four BB over six innings pitched.

The Toronto Blue Jays had their offense going in game three’s victory but  couldn’t carry over the momentum in Tuesday’s one sided defeat. Neither the arms or bats came through with starter RA Dickey charged with five runs on two homers through 1.2 innings. Three of the next five relievers were tagged for nine runs and that was  far too much for the Toronto offense to overcome. The Blue Jays mustered seven hits and walked twice with Jose Bautista and Josh Donaldson driving in runs while Ben Revere and Ryan Goins scored. The Blue Jays hope to keep their season alive when they send Marco Estrada to the mound. Estrada dropped a 5-0 decision to Kansas City in the ALCS with three runs scored on six hits over 5.1 frames.

Kansas City are 7-2 in their last 9 road games and are 7-3 in their last 10 games following a win while going  21-9 in Volquezs last 30 starts. The over is 7-0-4 in Toronto’s last 11 on astroturf and the over is 5-0-3 in their last 8 home games while going 6-1-1 in their last 8 games following a loss. Kansas City are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings in Toronto.
