Mike Trout has a record contract, and is still unbelievably underpaid
Trout and the Angels reached a deal for one million dollars, a record for player who isn't eligible for arbitration yet.
The Angels could have paid Trout whatever they want, and potentially as little as the $510,000 contract that they signed him to in 2013.
Trout was happy that they decided to give him some extra money, even though he's still vastly underpaid compared to his peers who have already hit free agency.
Next year, Trout will most likely come to a long-term contract agreement with the team, probably for 7+ years and $200M or more.
Congrats to both Trout and the Angels, who are both getting a pretty good deal for 2014.
