Mike Trout is reportedly on the verge of signing the richest contract in professional sports history, a 12-year, $426.5 extension with the Los Angeles Angels that will include the two years and $66.5 million on his current deal, according to ESPN and the Orange County Register.
Trout's expected average annual salary in the new deal will best the previous record held by Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Zack Greinke ($34.4 million) and his overall contract will top the $330-million deal that Bryce Harper signed with the Philadelphia Phillies on February 28 as the most lucrative in Major League Baseball.
Trout, 27, is a two-time American League MVP and had 39 home runs, 79 RBIs and a 1.088 OPS in 140 games last season.
WAR is not a ideal statistic by any means - and it is subjective enough that a second version, with different math, exists at Baseball-Reference.com - but using the above figures, it is fair to say Trout has been roughly 50 percent better than the second-best player in baseball, Donaldson, over the past six seasons. No player in history has put up more wins above replacement through his age-26 season than Trout's 64.3.
According to ESPN, the extension is for 12 years and $430 million.
Mike Trout is the best player in the game. It sure seems like this contract will keep Trout in Anaheim the rest of his career though, and that's pretty cool.
So Betts very well may be looking at doubling that $200 million offer when he comes to free agency after the 2020 season.
Trout's close friend, Bryce Harper, openly bragged about trying to recruit Trout to Philadelphia after signing his own insane contract this offseason. Last season was maybe his best ever (.312/.460/.628 and 191 wRC+) and he still has multiple peak years remaining.
Since becoming the Angels' full-time centerfielder, Trout has been in the American League MVP conversation every season. He lives in southern New Jersey, and Harper said he was excited about trying to recruit Trout to join him in Philadelphia.

Guy connected on 7 of 9 shots from 3-point range on his way to finishing one point shy of tying his career scoring high. Williamson scored 29 points and grabbed 14 rebounds and was a ideal 13-of-13 from the floor in the win.
