Trout’s initial timetable for return was 6-8 weeks but he said this week that he’s hoping to return earlier, and still hopes to play in the All-Star Game.

“It would be pretty cool just to, hopefully, be back by then,” Trout said. “Before the All-Star break, right at the All-Star break, just depending on how it goes.”

Trout was hitting. 337 with 16 home runs, and 36 RBI in just 47 games before the injury. Trout is currently second in All-Star voting among AL outfielders behind New York Yankees’ Aaron Judge.
