Morales progresses, but return date uncertain

ANAHEIM -- While Kendrys Morales continues to make strides in recovering from left ankle surgery, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said there is still no time frame for his return.

Joining the team back in Anaheim as it begins a four game homestand against the Boston Red Sox, Morales continues to take part in his running program that includes running the bases easily and running some cuts. He is also set to take some ground balls.

"It is nothing too extreme right now," Scioscia said. "He isn't close to playing in games yet, but he is feeling better and making a little progress, but nothing to get excited about right now."

On the disabled list since March 20, Morales has experienced issues with his range of motion and had some stiffness, but it continues to diminish after every workout.

Morales said he still continues to feel "something" in his ankle, but it is more discomfort than pain.

"It is feeling better day by day," Morales said. "I just don't want to push it, so I'll make sure I am at 100 percent."
