When ready, Morales will play Minors game

TEMPE, Ariz. -- There is still no timetable for the return of Angels first baseman Kendrys Morales, but when he is ready, his first game back will be with a Minor League club, manager Mike Scioscia said Thursday.

Scioscia said Morales, who ran the bases for the first time Sunday, will participate in the team's agility drills over the next few days. How he feels could determine how soon he plays. Morales hasn't played in a game since he fractured his left leg in 2010.

Another still-to-debut Angel, veteran reliever Jason Isringhausen, will make his first spring appearance on Friday. Isringhausen signed with the Angels early in camp, and has been working to get into game action.

As for outfielder Mike Trout, who is recovering from an illness, Scioscia said he's "still a couple days away." Scioscia said Wednesday that Trout's first playing time of the spring will likely come as a designated hitter.
