Angels owner says team has not discussed Mike Trout extension
The Los Angeles Angels have two years left of Mike Trout before he and the organization both have big decisions to make.
Trout is the best player in baseball and very much in his prime, but as of now, owner Arte Moreno says the two sides have not formally discussed extending his contract past the 2020 season.
Angels owner Arte Moreno said the club has had internal discussions regarding a potential Mike Trout contract extension, but there have been no formal talks.

Trout will be 29 when his contract expires, and if he hit the open market, there would be a lot of interest. Some other fans have already started to recruit him. Of course, Trout likely wants to win, and the fact is the Angels haven’t come close to being a consistent contender while he’s been there, nor do they look close to becoming one now.
