Tweet According to reports the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are close to a monster long-term extension with All-Star outfield Mike Trout. Details regarding the estension have been sporadic, but Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal added some clarity to the negotiations Monday evening: Sources say #Angels want Trout deal in $150M-$160M range. Guesstimate of $150M breakdown: $1M (pre-arb), $12M, $15M, $20M, $32M, $34M, $36M. — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) February 25, 2014 At just 22, Trout has already established himself as one of the best all-around players in MLB and locking him up now puts the Angels in position to avoid what was potentially shaping up to be a challenging arbitration hearing. Trout has performed at an MVP-caliber level and finished second in the voting each of the past two seasons. Trout was named Rookie of the Year in 2012 after batting .326 with 30 home runs, 83 RBIs and leading the AL with 49 stolen bases and 129 runs scored, and followed up that season with .323/27/97 and 33 steals in 2013 and led the league in runs for the second consecutive season (109) as well as 110 walks. -ALR
