According to the Los Angeles Times, Trout he not set a deadline for extension talks with the Angels even though the two sides are reportedly discussing a six-year deal in the $150 million range. The outfielder says he's willing to keep talking into the regular season if that what it takes to get something done.

"It doesn't matter to me," said Trout. "Nothing bothers me. I go out there and play, man. I don't worry about any of that stuff."

Trout is currently batting over .400 with one home run and nine runs driven in this spring. He's highly regarded as baseball's best player under 25 and his price tag will only go up as long as he continues to hit at a torrid pace.

According to oddsmakers from BetDSI.com, the Angels are currently 20/1 to win the 2014 World Series and 11/1 to win the AL pennant this season. They're also +225 to win the AL West, which puts them behind the Rangers (+175) and Athletics (+200) in the division.
