Kendrys Morales now aiming for early May return

Kendry Morales

There’s still no official timetable for his return from last year’s broken ankle, but Kendrys Morales took a big step in his recovery yesterday by running on the field wearing cleats for the first time since early spring training.

Mike Scioscia was quick to point out that Morales was running at less than 100 percent, calling it “baby steps.” However, given that being able to run at something resembling full speed is basically the only thing keep Morales from rejoining the Angels’ lineup even baby steps are a major development.

He’s been taking batting practice and participating in fielding drills for a while now, but when Morales tried to ramp up his running in early March he experienced a setback in the form of foot soreness.

According Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times “the Angels hope Morales can return by early May.”

    Now that the Angels realize that they bought a pig in a poke in Vernon Wells (four full years too, Angel fans!), they desperately need Morales to at least be able to adequately perform as a DH, even if he has a permanent hitch in his git-a-long. Next time I bet that Angels GM Reagans says: “Show me the CarFax!”, before he buys one of those previously flooded Wells models (LOL!).

    Looks like another long season in which the Cubs and Torii Hunter will wind up with the same thing in common again, and that’s NO RINGS!

    Hey! I just think that the PO-lice in Pittsburgh just kneed Butterbean, the fat loud mouthed guy they hauled away from PNC Park the other night in the old package! Some guys just never learn their lesson!
