The hottest free agent catcher today has found a new home in Philly, and is perhaps a telltale sign that Bryce Harper is indeed going to end up his teammate. There has been long discussion that Mike Trout is going to potentially end up in the same outfield as Harp one day. Is this the makings of the next super team in baseball?
Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports:
Phillies have visions of signing Mike Trout and pairing him with Bryce Harper...
Angels superstar Mike Trout, who enters the 2019 season with a pair of MVP awards, a career of 175, and a whopping 64.3 WAR across parts of eight big-league seasons. He's under contract with the Halos through the 2020 season, and barring a second big extension ( ) he'll hit the market in time for his age-29 campaign. That's where the Phillies come in. Yes, it's a fit in terms of the Phillies' budget and likely competitive window. Also, Trout is a native of Millville, NJ -- which is fewer than 50 miles away from Philly.
