The Angels and Mike Trout have agreed to a six-year, $144.5 million contract extension, according to Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com.

Well that was fast. Gonzalez reported the two sides were close just minutes earlier, but apparently they were just crossing T's and dotting I's. The $24.1 million average annual value makes Trout the third Angels player, along with Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton, to earn $24 million per year on average. It's a nice payday for the 22-year-old pre-arbitration player.

A source tells MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez that the Angels and Mike Trout are finalizing a six-year contract extension worth slightly more than $140 million.

Such a deal would buy out Trout's three years of arbitration and his first three years of free agency. A deal with similar parameters had been discussed earlier this spring. It's fitting that the deal would come shortly after Miguel Cabrera's record-setting extension with the Tigers, as the two have seemingly been linked every step of the way for the past two years. The Angels have yet to confirm that a deal is in place.
