The Angels are as confused as the rest of the baseball world about Kendrys Morales‘ stalled rehabilitation from a broken left ankle.

According to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times, Morales will travel to Vail, Colorado early this week to get a second opinion from foot and ankle specialist Dr. Thomas Clanton.

Morales has not played in a major league game since last May and has not been able to run at full speed in 11 months. He got an injection in the ankle a week ago, but it hasn’t helped.

Halos manager Mike Scioscia told the Times on Sunday that he doesn’t expect Morales to be ready until June, at the earliest. The 27-year-old registered a .924 OPS, 34 home runs and 108 RBI in 2009.

    Gotta love those limp-off home run celebrations.

    Stupid is as stupid does! It’s beginning to look more and more like Kendrys has just sent his career down t he old porcelain fixture all because he had to act like a little leaguer after hitting a walk off home run in just one out of 162 regular season games. They shoot horses for such injuries, don’t they?

    I feel terrible for this guy. What a weird freak accident.

    I can’t believe you people above are making light of this and acting like Kendrys did something wrong…just about EVERYONE who hits a walk-off home run jumps onto home plate.

    It’s not like he tried to do a somersault or a back-flip.
