The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim started the 2016 season with high hopes, however the injury bug is slowly going around to each player, as the Angels currently have the most amount of players on the disabled list. 

UPDATE: May 30th 2016 3:00 PM   transactions today: – Activate Huston Street from DL – Option Mike Morin to AAA Salt Lake – DFA Deolis Guerra – Recall Chris Jones.

With the Angels sitting at a record of 22-28, with only 1 win away from the last place Athletics, the time for the Angels teammates to recover from injuries is now. With June coming around the corner, most players should be returning back to the team, if they do not hit some bump in the road. Cough Cough C.J. Wilson….

First, let’s take a look at the current Angels injuries and find out when the Halo’s can finally be healthy.

Yunel Escobar (3B) – Left Wrist Contusion, left last nights game early. Angels manager said he should be day to day, but Escobar will be examined.

Craig Gentry (LF) – Right lumbar spine strain, Gentry actually is back playing baseball and is with the Single A team, however ran into some medical condition as of May 23rd. Another setback for an outfielder.

Andrew Heaney (P) – Left flexor muscle, Heaney was out all last year, and has been given permission not to throw until Mid June. There is a slight chance Heaney could be ready by end of August or September, however where the Angels are in the standings, he might be rested.

Daniel Nava (LF) – Left groin strain, he was placed on the 15-day DL on May 17, and will be coming back in a matter of games. Could come back after the Tigers series at the Big A.

Corey Rasmus (P) – Right groin strain, was placed on a 15-day DL on May 17th and threw his first bullpen session on May 27th. The Angels need bullpen help bad, as the past couple of series could have been won if the bullpen actually pitched decent.

Garret Richards (P) – Turn ulnar collateral ligament, Garret has been receiving his stem-cell injection awhile now. On May 16th he has been officially shut down for 6 weeks. He has been placed on the 60 day DL.

Adrelton Simmons (SS) – Recovering from May 2016 left thumb surgery. Simmons says he felt a lot better and could be returning a week later. His aim date to return back to the team is possibly late June. He is currently taking baseball activities in Arizona.

Geovany Soto (C) – Recovering from May 20126 right knee surgery, he underwent surgery to repair torn meniscus around mid May and could come back Late June. Perez has been stepping up in his place.

Huston Street (P) – left oblique strain, he threw a 20 pitch simulated game on May 28th, and is expected to be re-evaulted on his rehab today. Could come back in a matter of days. Update: Street is back with the team

C.J. Wilson (P)Just read this…..Wilson may not be returning back in a very long time….

Most of the players are right on track for a return back in mid or late June. The Angels need to step up with players out while they heal. If they can manage to regain position around .500 winning percentage. The Angels come possibly make a run for a red hot streak late in the season.

Can the Angels be able to make a playoff run with all these injuries?
