Torii Hunter Likely To Rejoin Angels Shortly

Torii Hunter hasn't played in a game since May 12, as the Angels placed him on the restricted list so he could deal with a matter involving his son. Hunter's 17-year-old son Darius was arrested in Texas on charges related to sexual assault, and Hunter said he wouldn't come back to baseball until the issue was resolved.

Not long ago a family lawyer called for all the charges to be dismissed, and if Hunter's planning to return, that suggests that things are nearing a conclusion. Mark Trumbo has manned right field in Hunter's absence, and while Trumbo doesn't offer Hunter's range or charm, he does own a .981 OPS. Since Hunter last played, Trumbo has batted 17-for-41 with five doubles and a dinger. I'd say that is satisfactory production.
