Mike Trout to sign record breaking 12 year / 430 million extension with The Angels

Update: Technically a 360MM/10 year deal that starts in 2021

MLB: Spring Training-Cleveland Indians at Los Angeles Angels Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

At 7:14 AM on Tuesday, March 19th, 2019, Jeff Passan broke the best new ever:

That’s a double whammy for Bryce Harper. First that hit by pitch, now his pitch to land Trout goes nowhere.

That is nearly HALF A BILLION dollars and Mike Trout is worth every penny. You could even argue that he will still be under paid. This deal reportedly has no opt outs and I imagine a full no-trade clause. Mike Trout wants to be an Angel for life which is good for Trout, good for Angels fans, and good for baseball. You just don’t see that anymore.

More to come on this amazing and developing story.
