Trout’s timeline for return unknown as he battles ‘rare condition’ in back | The Athletic

Frostad was asked why the significant optimism earlier this month of a quick return has now led to a condition – costovertebral dysfunction at T5 – where there’s more concern.

“This is a pretty rare condition that he has right now in his back,” Frostad said. “The doctor (Robert Watkins), who is one of the most well-known spine surgeons in the country, if not the world, doesn’t see a lot of these.

“And for it to happen in a baseball player, we just have to take into consideration what he puts himself through with hitting, swinging on a daily basis, just getting prepared. And then also playing in the outfield. … There’s so many things that can aggravate it. But this doctor hasn’t seen a lot of it.”

Burn it down. Burn it all down.

Frustrated Mike Trout Spots His Own Pitcher Tipping Pitches While Standing in Center Field

In the game, with the Angels already trailing, reliever Elvis Peguero was getting blown up by the White Sox in the 7th inning. While it was happening, the camera caught a visibly frustrated Mike Trout out in center field literally showing how his teammate was tipping his pitches:

Trout is demonstrating what Peguero is doing, seemingly frustrated about how obvious it is and/or about how it isn’t stopping. The White Sox were on him so well, perhaps, because they knew exactly what was coming.

Worse, nobody else seems to have figured it out – or even communicated it to Peguero – until well after the game:
