Trout close to $430M extension with Angels

Angels' Mike Trout finalizing record-breaking $430M US extension: report

The Angels have given out their share of huge contracts, but Albert Pujols' deal expires after the 2021 season and Justin Upton's runs through the 2022 year.

The Trout extension doesn't have much impact on the Yankees other than taking away a potential free agent target in two years, so this is a pretty good reminder that you should sign acquire elite talent while you can.

While the Angels' past forays into long-term contracts have not paid off - their 10-year, $240 million deal with Albert Pujols and five-year, $125 million deal with Josh Hamilton both are considered albatrosses - the possibility of losing Trout was simply too daunting to not complete a deal.

The Los Angeles Angels are about to lock up the most expensive athlete in the history of professional sports.

Trout has a staggering 64.3 Wins Above Replacement through his age-26 season, which is far beyond any player at his age in Major League Baseball history.

Trout's total would top the new $330 million, 12-year contract between Bryce Harper and the Philadelphia Phillies, and Trout's $36 million average annual value would surpass pitcher Zack Greinke's $34.4 million in a six-year deal with Arizona that started in 2016.

The news of the deal between the two sides was broken by Jeff Passan of ESPN. He hit.312 with 39 home runs and 79 RBIs in 2018. He's won the award twice in seven full seasons with the Angels.

Betts rejected an eight-year, $200 million extension proposal following the 2017 season, according to a source.

The A's will have to deal with Mike Trout in the American League West for a long, long time. After landing with his new team, Harper was public in his recruitment of Trout, a southern New Jersey native and die-hard Eagles fan.
