LAA, Franchise Player “No Mike Trout Trade”

Los Angeles Angels GM Perry Minasian quashed superstar trade speculation on Saturday at the Winter Meetings in Nashville, Tennessee, saying, “Mike Trout will not be traded.”

When asked if he was “100 percent sure,” Minassian said, “100 percent.”

An actual trade of Trout is highly unlikely. His no-trade clause is against his former club. If he rejects it, it’s impossible. Furthermore, he is owed $250 million (32.87 billion won) in future salary. Due to his frequent injuries, he doesn”t have the same value as before.레모나토토 주소

Since his debut with the Los Angeles Angels in 2012, Trout has been recognized as one of the best players in the game, winning Rookie of the Year and three MVP awards. In recent years, however, he has been plagued by injuries, limiting his appearances to 237 games over three seasons. The Angels have made the postseason once in 13 years, but Trout has never expressed a desire to play elsewhere.

The Angels signed Trout to a 12-year, $426.5 million contract before the 2019 season, the highest in major league history. However, due to the mismanagement of owner Ate Moreno, the Angels were not invited to fall ball despite having the best player in the game in Trout and two-time MVP Shohei Ohtani.

The trade speculation surged this year after the team missed the rest of the season with injuries and missed the postseason. There was a lot of talk about the need to upgrade the lineup by acquiring prospects via trade, when in reality, it was common sense to upgrade the lineup by trading Ohtani. Last year’s offseason and this year’s trade deadline were the perfect time for Moreno to embrace Ohtani, only to lose him in free agency.

The outfielder was named to the All-Star team for 11 straight years, including Rookie of the Year in 2012. There was no All-Star Game in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The three-time MVP is a surefire Hall of Famer based on his current awards and records alone. The Angels can’t afford to lose a Hall of Famer in a trade.
