Los Angeles Angels do not want to let go their best player and the best in all baseball, they threw the house out the window and came to a HISTORICAL agreement for almost 500 million dollars with the outfielder Mike Trout ..
According to ESPN's Jeff Passan, Trout and the Angels are finalizing an agreement that would pay the outfielder a total of $ 430 million for 12 years.
The new contract will be an extension to his current contract that still has 2 years in force for 66 million dollars.
That means that for the next 14 years the 2 times MVP will take a total of 496 million dollars to the stock market, that is without counting incentives and bonuses that contracts of this caliber normally have.
Trout in just seven years has become one of the best players in the history of MLB, because he has won 2 trophies to the Most Valuable, 6 silver bats, 7 appointments to the All-Star Game, as well as the Rookie of the Year of the American League.
Even the outfielder has finished between the Top 5 MVP in each of his campaigns in the Major Leagues, 2 as a winner, 4 as second place and one in fourth place.
Trout's new contract beats the one signed by Bryce Harper less than a month ago by 100 million dollars.
