Report: Mike Trout likely out another week
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout is still a little ways away from returning to action.
According to Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com, Trout is not expected to return to the Angels until their next homestand, which does not begin until Friday.
The Angels aren't expecting Mike Trout to rejoin the club until their next homestand.

In other words, that’s roughly another week — at least — for Trout to remain sidelined with a troublesome wrist. He has also been away from the team after the death of his brother-in-law, which may have been a factor in why he wasn’t activated when eligible on Thursday.
Trout is hitting .309 with 30 home runs. He was having another MVP-caliber season this year, but the month out and the Angels’ lack of playoff contention will probably keep him from winning the award.
