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.

Take it away, Mike Scioscia:

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.
