I know this is super early but if we just assume for a sec the following. He has nearly 200 innings, 16 wins, and 40 home runs for the next 3 season. What salary does he get? He will only make 545k for the next 3 seasons. He would have made 100mil in Japan.

Is it possible that he could be given a 5 year 250 million salary?



That would be a minimum. 40 HR a year playing only around 110 games would be by far the most valuable hitter in all of baseball. 16 wins would be disappointing though. That is only a win or two above 'replacement'.

I didn't want to go crazy and say a 40 and 20 wins. Maybe I should have said 20 wins and 35 home runs.

I wonder if there is an insuraxne policy that he could get. Would be hard to walk away from 100 mil.

Dude..no more whiskey in the Pepsi.... He hit 22 in 300+ ABís in 2016 and 8 in 200 in Ď17...maybe developing power but itís Japan...where the F are you projecting this 30+ HR in part time at bats power from?

Its just a silly futures conversation. I dont actually think he would be able to get those numbers. Just curious what kind of cash he would get if he were to do it. Top end arms get 25 mil and top end bats get 20 mil. Would someone be crazy enough to give him both numbers. Kinda like leveon bell is trying to pull with the Steelers. They offered him 12 mil but he declined because he thinks he is worth 8 mil for running and 10 mil for receiving.

Not on the Angels. If I am not mistaken they didn't have anyone with more than 12 wins last year.

I'd be thrilled with 16 wins. I'd be thrilled with 20 home runs
Angels are being real careful with him
They got him pretty much on the Japan league pitching schedule.
Pitch once a week. Next scheduled start is Sunday
He had the day off yesterday and surprised he's not in the lineup tonight.
He does bat left and TX is pitching a lefty
Even though he is making the min, I think its the smart move to come over now
Get used to the Major League ball now rather then later. (the actual baseball is a little different in Japan with higher seams)
He's only 23, might as well develop and improve against the best

This. If he averages 16 wins for the next 3 years he will get a very large contract even if he hits very poorly.

Another aspect of this "prospect" is he brings hope and excitement to the Angels (and the MLB in general). The Angels had little hope over the last 3 years. Trout banged up missing games, Pujols aging/under performing, and a no name pitching staff (starters and bullpen). Now they are off to a hot start and the future seems a little brighter. Of course they still have to deal with the Astros in their division, so it will be very tough to win the AL West.

It will be interesting to see the attendance average between when he is pitching and not.

I'm driving over for the Sunday afternoon game against the Yankees. I certainly hope he is in the lineup that day.
