Tampa Bay Rays at Los Angeles Angels MLB Matchup

The Los Angeles Angels are expecting the return of Mike Trout to their lineup Friday against the Tampa Bay Rays.

The star center fielder has been out of the starting lineup since Sept. 6 because of a nerve condition in his right foot. He pinch hit the next day and drew a walk, and hasn’t played since.

But while Trout is returning, the Angels will be without designated hitter Shohei Ohtani, not just for Friday’s game, but for the rest of the season.

Ohtani, who homered in his last game on Wednesday against the Cleveland Indians, is scheduled to have surgery to repair a kneecap issue, known as bipartite patella, in his left knee on Friday.
