TEMPE, Ariz. -- Angels players who have been dealing with physical issues both recent and long term continued to make progress toward returning to action on the field soon.
Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Kendrys Morales, who ran the bases for the first time Sunday in a major milestone since the devastating leg injury he suffered in May 2010, ran again Monday with no apparent problems. Scioscia said Morales ran from first to third three times and home to first once.
Scioscia said the club is determining whether Morales will see his first action in a Minor League game or a Cactus League contest.
Veteran reliever Jason Isringhausen, signed late as camp began, continues to work toward getting into games. Scioscia reported he threw long toss Monday and should be only a few days away from getting in a game.
"We're going to have to evaluate his stuff when he gets out there and see how he's pitching, but a healthy Jason Isringhausen really complements a lot of things we're trying to do in our bullpen," Scioscia said.
Also, outfielder Mike Trout continues to recover from illness and the club hopes he'll be running the bases and playing in the outfield later this week.
