I'm not sure we haven't entered the Albert phase already. 

He can't stay healthy. It's only going to get worse the older he gets. 

Maybe Griffey Jr. is a better comp.

I guess a good thing would be that he doesn't have as much mileage on his body thanks to all the time he's missed.... Maybe that helps in the long term.

Mid-case scenario: From 1.000 OPS to .850 next year, and a couple trips to the IL as he re-aggravates the calf or pulls another muscle somewhere. Every year after that he spends significant time on the IL. Five years in he retires.

Best-case: He returns to his previous glory (Comeback Player of the Year) but the numbers diminish gradually as his 30's proceed. He loses 20-25 games each year with various injuries. He manages to play out his contract but as a part-time player near the end. 

Worst-case: The damn calf never really gets well and he retires two or three years in.

I’m assuming that there is no chance of it being a Grade 3 strain (surgery suggested) instead of a Grade 2 strain, since it’s soreness and not pain that he is experiencing?

At minimum it is a Grade 3. No Grade 2 lasts this long. Should have had surgery 3 months ago.

Why?  Will having surgery now (assuming he needs surgery) prevent him from being ready for opening day?

depends on the thickness of the tear, again assuming thats what it is. But a Gr 3 that is closer to full thickness than not is 6 months to 1 year rehab.

I know it is not at all directly related to the calf injury, but isn’t it time for Trout to stop sliding head first?

I cringe every time he does it.  I didn’t when he first came up, but now I do.

It is so unnecessary to slide head first.
