Its official, Mike Trout is an Angel for life.
Reported by ESPN, Mike Trout ad the Angels have just agreed to a 12 year contract worth more than $430 Million. After a 10 year $300 million contract for Machado and a Bryce Harper deal of 13 years for $330 million you knew the best player in the game and already making arguments for all time would blow them out of the water.
The extra $100 million and extra $5 million per year proves the value and greatness Mike Trout possess and makes things interesting for the Mookie Betts contract extension that should be arriving soon. Expect him to make between the Harper and Trout deals if he signs an extension with Boston.
Trout’s new deal breaks all of the contract records for American sports including average annual value, (35.8 million per year), and largest total value of a contract.
