Mike Trout may not return from DL when eligible
Mike Trout may not be ready to return to the Los Angeles Angels when he is eligible to come off the disabled list on Thursday.
Trout is away from the team due to a family matter, and the team is not sure if he’ll be ready to play on Thursday.
The #Angels say Mike Trout is away from the team for a personal family matter. They are unsure if he’ll be activated from the DL when he’s eligible on Thursday.

Trout has not played since Aug. 1 due to a wrist injury. He had a cortisone shot last week which supposedly led to some improvement, though the Angels retroactively placed him on the DL.
The 27-year-old MVP candidate is batting .309 with a 1.083 OPS this season.
