LOS ANGELES (BVM) — The Los Angeles Angels entered the 2023 MLB season with two of the biggest stars in baseball, Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout, but they currently find themselves in fourth place in the AL West and 12.5 games back of a wild-card spot.
Trout, a three-time AL MVP, is under a 12-year, $426.5 million contract, with a full no-trade clause and could want out, according to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale.

“The Los Angeles Angels, perhaps for the first time, are open to trading All-Star outfielder Mike Trout if he indicates to them that he wants out,” Nightengale wrote in an article. “Trout has exclusive no-trade rights and said recently that he wants to have a private conversation with the front office and ownership about their direction.”
These could be Trout’s last days in LA and if he tells the Angels he wants a trade, these are five possible landing spots.
