MLB Investigating Yankees for Possibly Tampering with Mike Trout

MLB Investigating Yankees for Possibly Tampering with Mike Trout

Major League Baseball is reportedly investigating whether the New York Yankees engaged in tampering when Yankees president Randy Levine said he would recommend a 10-year contract for Angels superstar Mike Trout were he with the Yankees. 

“We just don’t believe our policy is for players over 30 years old, we don’t believe in 10-year contracts,” Levine said. “They just have not worked out for us, they have not worked out – I believe – for the industry. When we signed Derek Jeter to a 10-year contract, I believe he was 26. In that context, it makes sense. If Mike Trout was here, I’d recommend the 10-year contract. But for people over 30, I don’t believe it makes sense.”

As Sports Illustrated notes, “Trout, 22, is under Angels contract for four more years and is eligible for arbitration starting in 2015.”

He has finished second in the American League MVP race his first two historic seasons. For his many unprecedented accomplishments, Trout made $480,000 during his rookie year and $510,000 last season.
