Mike Trout $50.6 Million
Mike Trout is an astonishingly good baseball player. So good, in fact, he probably punched his ticket to the MLB Hall of Fame before he even turned 30. Not much of the country’s casual fans know about his greatness, though, because his team has not been very good.
In 2019, Trout took home his 3rd MVP Award. But the Angels have never won a playoff game since he began playing for the team in 2011. Trout earned $47.6 million in salary in the last year and $3 million in endorsements.
