Mike Trout, Angels reportedly finalizing largest deal in sports history

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

Meanwhile, Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal "fainted" upon reading the news of Trout's pending payday and suggested he'll raise his kid to be a baseball player.

Trout, the best player in the game and someone putting together a resume that rivals some of the greatest to ever take the field, has reportedly agreed to a 12-year extension to stay in California worth a record-setting $430 million. ESPN's Jeff Passan reports Trout's extension, plus two years remaining on his current deal, will surpass $430 million.

Trout, 27, was two years away from hitting free agency.

While the Angels' past forays into long-term contracts have not paid off - their 10-year, $240 million deal with Albert Pujols and five-year, $125 million deal with Josh Hamilton both are considered albatrosses - the possibility of losing Trout was simply too daunting to not complete a deal.

This means that in the future, smartphones will have more of a unibody design with no design elements. Therefore, the front-facing modules are constantly visible through them.

So much for the Angels balking at record-breaking Mike Trout contract numbers earlier this month. By WAR, he is the best position player in baseball history through at age and has been that for more or less the entirety of his big-league career.

The deal would smash the massive contract signed by Bryce Harper - 13 years, $330 million with the Philadelphia Phillies - on March 2.

Trout's reported contract extension tops a list of record-setting paydays for Major League Baseball paydays this offseason. Trout has played seven seasons and finished in the Top 5 of AL MVP voting in all seven, winning the award twice and placing second four times. He won the 2012 American League Rookie of the Year, and the 2014 and 2016 American Leave MVP award. Harper had already begun making overtures to the Philadelphia-area native to join him with the Phillies at that time.
