If Ohtani is taken away, Trout can make the next move.”
The LA Angels’ 2023 season has entered its vain conclusion. Unusually, he stepped forward as a buyer just before the trade deadline, but failed miserably. In order to preserve payroll, a skit was created where players who were hastily recruited were sent back out.
And Shohei Ohtani (29) will leave for another club in the 2023-2024 free agent market. In the end, the Angels will face the worst possible situation, a disaster in which neither the grades, Ohtani, nor the future will be achieved. In this situation, American media recently even mentioned the possibility of a trade for Mike Trout (32).
The logic is that the Angels should sell Trout and acquire prospects without getting anything for Ohtani. This means that having Trout with him at this point will not be of much help to the club’s future. Trout signed a 12-year, $426.5 million contract extension with the Angels ahead of the 2019 season. He has 7 years remaining on his contract worth $248.15 million (about 329 billion won).
Sports Illustrated’s Los Angeles Angels fan nation Hallos Today strongly argued for Trout’s trade on the 14th (Korean time). It was reported that there have been trade discussions since last year. He argued that since he gained nothing from Ohtani, it was right to trade him for the long-term direction of the team.
Then USA Today’s Bob Nightingale raised a realistic theory. “We’re not going to get the same returns from Trout, who is 32 years old. “He has not played in more than 140 games since the 2016 season, and if he fails to return this season, he will miss 249 games over the past three years.”먹튀검증
In fact, Trout has not been able to live up to his name due to various minor injuries in recent years. As we entered the 30th line, durability issues began in earnest. Nightingale’s point makes sense. This means that the Angels will not be 100% satisfied even if they trade Trout, but in the end, it is a dilemma for the Angels.
Hallos Today said, “The Angels, who have not played in the postseason for nine years, may be the worst team in sports today to have been neglected in the past 10 years. “As painful as it is, Trout’s career with the Angels could end with a choice that hurts both the greatest player in club history and the fans.” At this point, in one word, there is no answer.
