Angels’ Jordyn Adams Sent to Triple-A as Mike Trout’s Return Progresses

Manager Phil Nevin Provides Update on Mike Trout's Recovery and Possible Return

Angels fans have been keeping a close watch on recent roster developments as the Los Angeles Angels sent outfielder Jordyn Adams down to Triple-A on Sunday. This move coincides with the anticipation of star player Mike Trout’s impending return to the field after being sidelined for over a month.

However, Phil Nevin, the manager of the Angels, took the opportunity to clarify that Trout’s comeback isn’t set in stone just yet, although there has been consistent improvement in his condition. Trout, who left a game against the San Diego Padres on July 5 due to a fractured wrist, underwent surgery to address the issue. His return would be a much-needed boost for the Angels, who have been grappling in his absence.

“Mike felt good yesterday, felt a lot better today,” Nevin said. “As I’ve told you guys up until this point, it’s really day to day. Hopefully he comes in tomorrow, feels good and we’ll make a decision.

Presently, the Halos find themselves trailing a significant 9 games behind in the American League Wild Card race, and their chances of securing a playoff spot are diminishing with each defeat. Since their challenging stretch of seven consecutive losses in early August, the Angels managed to salvage a modest 5 out of 11 games.

Addressing Trout’s potential participation in the upcoming match against the Cincinnati Reds, Nevin disclosed that a final decision would be made right before the game’s commencement. The first pitch is slated for 6:38 p.m. PDT, with Lucas Giolito confirmed as the starting pitcher for the Halos.

“It’s not 100%,” Nevin added. “Yes, Jordyn went out. If we don’t feel Mike is ready, we have other options there, too. Mike’s gonna come in and see how he feels tomorrow… but as far as getting into a game and baseball action, that’s something that we have to make a decision on tomorrow.”
