The news keeps getting worse dor Kendrys Morales. The slugger’s season is over before it started after it was revealed he will require additional surgery to remove scar tissue in his ankle. All of this on a freak accident while celebrating a walkoff home run. Mark Trumbo will continue to start at first base.

It’s hard to imagine Morales will ever be the same.


When will Kendrys Morales return?

Kendrys Morales’ return from his walkoff home run celebration that abruptly ended his 2010 season will be delayed into the 2011 season as Morales starts the season on the disabled list. Mark Trumbo, who is hitting .340 this spring with five home runs and 13 RBI this spring, will start the year as the Angels’ first basemen. Things will get complicated for the Angels when Morales returns as they will have Morales, Trumbo, Vernon Wells, Torii Hunter, Bobby Abreu, and Peter Bourjos to occupy first base, designated hitter, and the three outfield spots. Until then, Trumbo is a good cheap power option.

Last year Trumbo hit .301 with 36 HR and 122 RBI for Triple-A Salt Lake.
