The Los Angeles Angels have made a big move with one of their players. On Feb. 26, The Los Angeles Times reported that the team had signed Mike Trout to a one year contract worth one million. The site also reported that Trout and The Los Angeles Angels are in talks for a six-year contract that could be worth $150 million. Trout is a player that can be seen at multiple positions. He is mostly seen at first base. Trout said the following about the deal, according to USA Today:
I just go out there to play the game. If the money is where it's at, that's where it's going to be.
This deal for Trout is the largest pre-arbitration contract for a player. This is a record that was once shared by Ryan Howard and Albert Pujols. Howard received a $900,000 deal from the Philadelphia Phillies in 2007, and Pujols received a deal for the same amount from the St. Louis Cardinals back in 2003. With the amount being offered to Trout, this is a landmark deal. It is a first to see a contract for one million for an A2 player.
What do you think of this deal? Is it a good move for The Los Angeles Angels? Are you excited to see how Mike Trout will perform for the team this season?
