MLB News: Mike Trout’s Agent Says Contract is Unfair

USATSI_8417656_154224518_lowresFor the second consecutive offseason, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim made headlines by snagging the top prized free agent. In 2011, they signed Albert Pujols to a 10 year $252 million dollar deal, and in 2012 they signed Josh Hamilton for five years at $125 million. It is no secret that Angels owner Arte Moreno has deep pockets, which makes the news over the weekend that Mike Trout had his contract renewed by the Angels for just $510,000 shocking.

Trout, who had one of the greatest rookie seasons in Major League history and finished second in the MVP voting, is making a mere $20,000 above the league average. According to Hardball Talk, Trout’s agent, Craig Landis said in an email that:

“In my opinion, this contract falls well short of a ‘fair’ contract, and I have voiced this to the Angels throughout the process”.

However, to those that believe the Angels decision to not resign Trout to a major extension appalling, it is within their every right to make the move. Trout doesn’t need to be given any extension a until he reaches “Super Two” status.

Trout’s decision to take the high road when asked about the Angels’ decision is another example of his greatness. He will not only put up another spectacular season, but his understanding that “his time will come” is refreshing and uncommon in this day and age.
