Mike Trout is off the injured list and is healthy again.
Unfortunately, that won’t be nearly enough to save the Los Angeles Angels‘ season, which is all but doomed at this point.
With an 11-1 blowout loss against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field, the Halos dropped to 52-71 on the season, which was their fourth straight loss.
Adding to that is the drama surrounding incumbent owner Arte Moreno, who appears to be starting the process of selling the team.
But even the drama surrounding him and the Angels amid their terrible season didn’t foil Trout, as he earned a major milestone in the Halos’ loss with a massive home run.

Trout Goes Yard For 1,500 Hits
Trout has dealt with several injuries of late, but he’s back now.
And last night, he got a little taste of history.
Trout has been an exciting player to watch ever since he won the American League Rookie of the Year Award all the way back in 2012.
He’s been the AL MVP three times and has been an American League All-Star 10 times.
Needless to say, Trout has accomplished a lot in such a short amount of time.
Trout reached the 1,500-hit milestone in style too, hitting his first home run since returning from the injured list.
Though it was all the Angels mustered last night, he put a charge into it and made a little history.
Amid all the drama surrounding the Angels, Trout managed to stay focused and absolutely crush this baseball.
That was good for Trout’s 25th homer of the season.
Trout has been one of the few bright spots in Anaheim since their epic losing skid in May took them out of contention.
But he remains one of the best hitters in all of baseball and continues to rake.
