New Philadelphia Phillies star Bryce Harper wanted to play on the same team with Mike Trout. Once this deal is finalized, those hopes and dreams will end.
The Los Angeles Angels are working on a 12-year extension with star Mike Trout. The two-time MVP will receive $430 million from the deal.
This would be the largest deal in sports history. ESPN’s Jeff Passan was the first to break the news.
The 27-year-old has two-years remaining on his current deal. He will make $33.250 million over the next two years.
Once his new deal is finalized, those two years will be included in the 10-year extension. He will receive $362 million in additional money onto the old deal.
This deal surpasses Harper’s deal that he signed with the Phillies. On Feb. 28, he signed a 13-year, $330 million deal.
Like Harper, Trout’s new deal will take him through his age-39 season.
Trout was born in Vineland, New Jersey, but has made Millville, New Jersey famous. He went to Millville Senior High School, before being a first-round pick with the 25th overall pick by the Angels in the 2009 MLB Draft out of Millville Senior High School.
He has spent the last eight seasons with the Angels. This past season, he had a .312 batting average with 39 home runs and 79 RBIs in 140 games.
He also had 24 doubles and four triples on 147 hits, while scoring 101 runs. Trout struck out 124 times and walked a career-best 122 times.
