Will the Los Angeles Angels trade Mike Trout (32)?
USA Today reported on Tuesday that the Angels have left the door open to trading Trout, assuming the player wants it.
They added that it would be the first time the Angels have left the door open to trading Trout.
Trout signed a contract extension with the Angels in 2019. Combined with his existing contract, it totaled 12 years and $430 million, setting a new record for the most expensive contract in North American professional sports at the time.
But the Angels are still not winning. This season, despite the additions, nothing has changed. As of Nov. 11, they were 66-77 and 13.5 games out of the third American League wild card.
Trout’s teammate Shohei Ohtani is set to become a free agent at the end of the season. He’s likely to leave for a “winning team.
Trout’s worries are bound to deepen.
According to USA Today, Trout recently expressed his desire to meet with the team’s decision makers, including the owner and front office, to discuss the team’s direction.카지노사이트
If he doesn’t get a favorable response, he’s likely to ask for a trade.
The problem is that his contract is too big to move. He currently has $248.15 million left on his contract through 2030.
His value isn’t what it used to be. Injuries have plagued him for the past three years, limiting him to 237 games. He missed this season with a wrist injury. It’s becoming increasingly unlikely that he’ll return.
It’s a long shot, but it’s not impossible. If the Angels are willing to pick up some of the tab, a deal could be done.
Trout has a trade veto on his former team. The Angels could take the initiative if a trade were to happen.
