LOS ANGELES (AP) - Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels have agreed to a $144.5 million, six-year contract that runs through 2020.
The Angels announced the deal Friday night and said Trout and his family will be at a news conference Saturday in Anaheim along with owner Arte Moreno, manager Mike Scioscia and general manager Jerry Dipoto.
Baseball's brightest young star, the 22-year-old Trout was a unanimous choice for AL Rookie of the Year in 2012. He finished second in AL MVP voting to Miguel Cabrera the past two years.
Trout agreed on Feb. 26 to a $1 million, one-year contract for 2014. His new deal runs from 2015-20.
The outfielder would have been eligible for arbitration for the first time after this season, and for free agency following the 2017 World Series. Now, he won't be eligible for free agency until at least age 29.
