Trout close to $430 million extension with Angels

Los Angeles Angels Mike Trout left and Washington Nationals Bryce Harper right talk during their meeting during pre-game warmups before the start of their baseball game Wednesday

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

Trout will stay in Anaheim for the foreseeable future as the Angels lock down their fan favorite. Removing those two years (worth $66.5 million), this essentially is a 10-year, $360-million deal through 2030 - still the largest in baseball history, and in pro sports history.

Much to the chagrin of the other 29 teams that hoped to pounce on Mike Trout in free agency following the 2020 season, the Los Angeles Angels' superstar outfielder isn't going anywhere. This is easily the largest contract in baseball history, breaking Bryce Harper's record.

It also exceeds the 11-fight, US$365 million contract that boxer Canelo Alvarez signed with streaming startup DAZN in 2018, previously considered the richest single-athlete contract ever.

Trout, who has won two American League MVP awards, is set to receive around €32mn per-year, reports ESPN, over a million more than the Arizona Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke and 30 percent greater than Harper's recent move to Philadelphia's Phillies.

Trout is a 27-year-old centerfielder who is a seven-time All Star.

Los Angeles selected Trout with the 25th overall pick in the 2009 amateur draft, and he signed for a bonus of $1,215,000.

Trout led the majors last season in on-base percentage (.460) while hitting.312 with 39 home runs and 79 RBIs. The clamoring already had begun, with Harper lobbying for Trout to join him in Philadelphia, 45 miles from Trout's hometown of Millville, New Jersey.
