Morales, Trumbo nearing final hurdles
TEMPE, Ariz. -- Kendrys Morales and Mark Trumbo, two recovering sluggers and two former first basemen, expect to run the bases next week, a step the Angels hope is the final one before getting them into Spring Training games.

Morales, who has missed the last 1 1/2 seasons with a broken left ankle, has already begun the process but isn't touching the bag or running in the dirt just yet. Instead, he's running from first to third, just outside the infield. One more week of that, and he could be game ready.

"He hasn't had any setbacks," manager Mike Scioscia said, "so hopefully we can keep that timeline."

Trumbo, who was nursing a stress fracture in his right foot but was recently cleared to progress toward full baseball activities, will begin running the bases at some point next week. But Scioscia isn't sure yet when he'll get in games.

"When his window is, it's tough to say," the Angels' skipper said. "He should progress to bases this week sometime, and then we can evaluate him from there."
