The Los Angeles Angels have certainly missed star Mike Trout. He's been out of the lineup since July 12, when he was pulled from the game early due to back spasms. He's officially been diagnosed with an ostovertebral dysfunction at T5 in his spine, but he's made progress in recent days.

Now the former AL MVP has revealed a potential return date.

Mike Trout Injury Update

Trout told reporters on Wednesday that he's hoping to return on Friday against the Detroit Tigers. The All-Star centerfielder said he's "healthy" and "pain-free", which is incredibly good news.

As long as no setbacks occur, it should be all systems go for Trout on Friday. The Angels have struggled without their MVP candidate, going just 13-16 since he hit the shelf.

Los Angeles continues to slide in the standings and is at risk of falling out of the playoff picture altogether. At 51-66, they're 11 games back of the final AL Wild Card spot. Hopefully Trout's return can be the spark the Angels need to get back on track.
