Posted: March 30, 2014

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.

Cabrera deal announced

Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera will earn a baseball-record $292 million over the next decade under a $248 million, eight-year deal with the Detroit Tigers.
