Despite being moved to the 60-day IL, Angels manager Joe Maddon said Trout is "on pace" in his rehabilitation process. Trout swung a bat in the batting cages Monday for the first time since he suffered a right calf strain May 17.
"He's doing really well, actually," Maddon told reporters. "He's on pace. He's on target. Just moving him around right now just based on different things we had to do.
"But he's good. He had a nice workout today at the stadium. Did some baseball activities, so everything is moving in the right direction. ... He swung the bat a little bit in the cages. More baseball-oriented stuff. He's doing really well."
Maddon noted that Trout's injury is more than 50% healed. Trout, who is eligible to return from the IL on July 17, is expected to go on a minor league rehabilitation assignment after the All-Star break.
Trout, an eight-time All-Star selection and three-time American League MVP, was batting .333 with eight home runs and 18 RBIs this season prior to his injury. He was injured while running the bases against the Cleveland Indians.
