LAA’s decision to break up? ESPN: Trout can be traded if he wants

Have the LA Angels decided to part ways with star Mike Trout (32)?

Citing a USA Today report, ESPN, an American sports channel, said on the 11th (Korean time) that the Angels are willing to trade Trout if he requests it. Earlier this month, it was reported that Trout plans to discuss his career path with team management. “I haven’t thought about it yet, but I’m definitely going to have some conversations in the winter,” Trout told the Orange County Register.

Trout is a superstar representing the American Major League Baseball (MLB). He debuted in the big league in 2011 and won the American League (AL) Most Valuable Player award three times (2014, 2016, and 2019). He boasts a more brilliant personal career than anyone else, including being an All-Star 11 times and a Silver Slugger 9 times.

The problem is the team performance and discrepancy. Since Trout’s debut, the Angels have advanced to the postseason (PS) only once, in 2014. Even this team was eliminated from the AL Division Series (ALDS) and had to pack up early. This season too, we have to move away from fall baseball and look to next season. To make matters worse, Trout has only played in one game since July 3 due to a wrist fracture. As the two-hitting power plummets, the team’s performance is also worsening.소닉카지노

The Angels’ two-way star, Shohei Ohtani, will be released as a free agent after the season. If Ohtani leaves, the team’s direction may need to be reset. If that happens, there is a high possibility that Trout’s future will be questioned. Trout’s career records in the big league (13 years) are a batting average of 0.301, 368 home runs, and 940 RBI.

Recruiting him is a plus, but the key is his astronomical price. ESPN reported, ‘Trout still has seven years and more than $248 million (KRW 330.1 billion) remaining on the 12-year, $430 million (KRW 572.4 billion) contract he signed in 2019.’ Trout even has the right to veto a trade, which is given to players who have played for at least 10 years or more for the same team for more than 5 years.
