Mike Trout issues statement about MLB lockout

Mike Trout looks on

Mike Trout issued a statement on Twitter Wednesday regarding the MLB lockout.

The Los Angeles Angels outfielder showed support of his fellow players and solidarity with the MLBPA in his post.

“I want to play, I love our game, but I know we need to get this CBA right,” Trout wrote. “Instead of bargaining in good faith – MLB locked us out. Instead of negotiating a fair deal – Rob canceled games.

“Players stand together. For our game, for our fans, and for every player who comes after us. We owe it to the next generation.”

Throughout the recent negotiations, Trout has also retweeted a few comments by his colleagues regarding the Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiations.

MLB on Tuesday announced the cancelation of the first two series of the 2022 season. The cancelation came in response to the players unanimously rejecting MLB’s final CBA proposal to the players on Tuesday.

Trout, 30, is a 3-time AL MVP. He only played in 36 games last season due to a calf injury.

Trout has made nearly $190 million during his career and is contracted to earn another $334 million.
