The Los Angeles Angels have arguably the best baseball player in the league on their roster in the form of Mike Trout, who has just been more than impressive in his young career. At twenty-nine years old, Trout has joined the 300th career home run club after a long ball for the Angels on Saturday.

After some uncertainty about Trout playing in the 2020 season, he ultimately played and now has crossed the 300 career home run threshold. So far, in 2020, Trout has played in thirty-five games where he is hitting .276/.371/.627 with 15 home runs and 37 RBI for the Angels.
Trout also signed an extension in 2019 that locks him up with the Angels through the 2030 season. The big contract brings Trout $426.5 million over twelve years as the arguable best talent in all of baseball. The Angels have their player of the future in Trout, and hitting 300 home runs under the age of 30 should just be considered the tip of the iceberg for Trout.
In ten seasons in the big leagues, Trout is a three-time MVP award winner, an eight-time all-star, seven-time silver slugger winner, and a Rookie of the Year award winner when he broke into the league.
Trout is a perennial talent in Major League Baseball, and he is just going to get better and better as time goes on; the hope should be for the Angels to be able to become a postseason threat in the big leagues.
