Angels star Mike Trout talks about being stuck at home like everybody else


Trout was supposed to spend Thursday preparing for a nationally televised season opener against the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park.


He was, instead, sitting in the living room of his Newport Beach home , speaking to MLB Network host Harold Reynolds about how disorienting the last two weeks have been.


MLB players, like athletes in other leagues around the globe, have been in a holding pattern since the NBA’s Rudy Gobert tested positive for the coronavirus infection March 11.


Trout spurned the colder climate of his native New Jersey, where he lives during the winter, for the comforts of Southern California.


Since returning from the Angels’ spring training facility in Tempe, Ariz., Trout has spent most mornings running hill sprints alongside Angels strength coach Lee Fiocchi, lifting weights in first baseman Albert Pujols’ home gym and playing catch at a youth league field near his house.


In videos posted on his new TikTok account , Trout squirts water at his unsuspecting housemate Kohn from a balcony overlooking a barbecue area and chips a golf ball from the second floor landing of his home into a red plastic cup below.
