Trout's contract renewed by Angels for $510,000
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Los Angeles Angels have renewed the contract of AL Rookie of the Year Mike Trout for $510,000, which is $20,000 above the major league minimum.
Trout had a $482,500 salary last year, when he finished second to Detroit's Miguel Cabrera in AL MVP voting. Trout hit .326 with 30 homers and 83 RBIs, and led the majors with 129 runs and 49 steals.
He also earned a $10,000 bonus for winning Rookie of the Year.
Trout has 1 year, 70 days of major league service and is not likely to be eligible for arbitration until after the 2014 season. Teams can renew the contracts of unsigned players on their 40-man rosters from March 2-11.
Los Angeles also agreed to one-year deals with 21 players.
