The Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout provides an exciting update on his back injury and potential return.

Then in the past week, it came out that he had a rare spinal condition affecting his ribs and T5 which is a disc in your spine. Immediately, there were concerns that Trout would miss the season if not have his entire career affected. Luckily, Trout walked back those comments and said that he got some shots into his back.

Now, Trout has provided an even better announcement about his ailing back. After visiting a renowned back doctor, trout has said that’s he now pain-free. Starting in a few days, he will begin doing rotation exercises. Basically, he will be mimicking swinging a bat and twisting his back. If that goes well, he could start hitting in the cage a couple of days after that.
