Report: Angels & Mike Trout Working on 6 Year $150 Mil Contract
Mike Trout has only been in the league two years and is only 22 years old, so it is possible he could sign this extension and then hit free agency again at the prime age of 28.
Here are the proposed details according to Yahoo Sports.
The Los Angeles Angels and star center fielder Mike Trout are discussing a six-year contract extension that would pay him in the range of $150 million, a source close to the negotiations told Yahoo Sports.
The gap between the sides is in the low eight figures, the source said, with the Angels offering a little more than $140 million. Optimism exists that it will be bridged, and it is likely to end up with an average annual value of around $25 million a year, which would smash records for a player with just two-plus years of service time.
