(CNN)Mike Trout, one of the most sought-after baseball players of his generation, looks set to agree a 12-year contract extension with the Los Angeles Angels worth a stunning $430 million, according to multiple reports. The deal, should it be confirmed, would net the outfielder $36 million a year and be the most expensive contract in Major League Baseball (MLB) history, as well as the biggest in sports. Trout has consistently had one of the highest Wins Above Replacement (WAR) — a measurement that estimates the total number of extra wins a team gains with an individual player in the team as opposed a replacement-level player in the same position — in the MLB over the course of his career.
