The Los Angeles Angels are finalizing a 12-year contract with Mike Trout, according to Jeff Passan. The deal will pay him upwards of $430 million which is considered to be the largest contract in professional sports history.
The 27-year-old Trout, who has won two American League MVP awards, will receive an average of nearly $36 million a year over the course of the next 12 years.
Trout would have been eligible to become a free agent after the 2020 season after the completion of his current six-year, $144.5 million deal. This new contract reportedly would add 10 years to his existing deal, making it 12 years total.
There will be no opt-out clause in the deal.
