Angel Third Baseman Anthony Rendon’s Injury Update Leaves Coaches Bewildered

Nevin's concerns over Rendon's return add to Angels' disappointing season.

The situation surrounding Angel third baseman Anthony Rendon’s injury update has left coaches in confusion as to when he might return to the field. Despite the team’s eagerness to get an update from Rendon himself, his recent media no-show has only added to the uncertainty surrounding his return.

Rendon, who signed a massive seven-year contract with the Angels after winning a World Series with the Washington Nationals in 2019, is facing another lost season due to injury. Unfortunately, his absences have been a recurring issue during his time with the Angels, and this year’s setbacks have been especially detrimental after the front office’s moves to strengthen the team at the trade deadline.

Even when Rendon has been healthy, which has been infrequent during his tenure with the Angels, his performance on the field hasn’t quite lived up to the high expectations set by the team after signing him. As his struggles continue, Head Coach Phil Nevin’s concerns over Rendon’s return only add to the disappointing narrative of the Angels’ season.

The Angels’ recent struggles were evident when they were swept by the Mariners over the weekend, making their playoff chances seem increasingly distant. As the season unfolds, the possibility of these being Shohei Ohtani’s final games with the team has also raised concerns among fans.

As the Angels continue to face challenges and uncertainties, they are hoping for clarity regarding Rendon’s injury status and a potential return to the field. Until then, the team remains determined to navigate through the difficulties and improve their performance for the remainder of the season.
