ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Mike Trout and the Angels announced their 12-year contract, a record deal that ties baseball’s top player to Los Angeles for what likely will be the rest of his career.

A person with knowledge of the contract told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the deal is worth $432 million, shattering baseball’s previous high set when Bryce Harper and Philadelphia struck a $330 million, 13-year agreement earlier in spring training. The person spoke on condition of anonymity the deal had not yet been finalized.

Angels owner Arte Moreno says in a statement Wednesday he is thrilled Trout “has agreed to wear an Angels uniform for his entire career.”

Trout had been due $66.5 million over the next two seasons under his previous deal, a $144.5 million, six-year agreement.
