ANAHEIM -- With Kendrys Morales set to get a second opinion on his injured left leg on Tuesday in Vail, Colo., from Dr. Thomas Clanton, Angels manager Mike Scioscia believes it could get him on track quicker.
"It is just to get piece of mind for him and where his rehab is going, and see if any opinions could help him move ahead more rapidly," said Scioscia.
While Scioscia said Morales' injury is pretty "cut and dry," he believes it is important to get verification for the Angels first baseman.
Morales wants to get a second opinion so he can take the last step and feel comfortable moving forward.
"We're going to the specialist because he knows best," Morales said through translator Diego Lopez. "I know my injury. I knew it was going to take some time. We just have to wait it out."
Morales rejoined the team on Friday from spring training camp in Tempe, Ariz., as he continues to recover from left ankle surgery. He has been running with full weight on his leg, however the Angels still have no timetable for his return or for when he will add anything to his regimen.
"It's all about feeling my best," Morales said. "Until I don't feel that way, I won't return."
