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.
