Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim outfielder Mike Trout is having himself a decent Spring as the team prepares themselves for the upcoming season.
Now the Angels and Trout are currently in talks about a huge six year, $150 million contract extension according to the Los Angeles Times. Mike signed a one year, $1 million deal in order to avoid arbitration.
The Los Angeles Times also reports that Trout has not set a deadline for the long-term extension. Which will give the Angels a lot of time to throw a couple offers in his direction, hopefully getting him to bite on one of them.
The 22 year old power house from Vineland, New Jersey currently has one home run and nine RBI’s this spring. That home run and four of those nine RBI’s came against my Chicago Cubs, when Trout launched a grand slam out of the ballpark.
“I love Spring Training, but I want to start playing in games that count. I want to be in Anaheim playing. I’m anxious for Opening Day. I’m excited. I’m ready to go now.” Mike Trout via the Los Angeles Times.
He’s currently hitting an outstanding .444/.464/.741 batting line and is showing no signs of slowing down.
