A dream trade package to land Mike Trout

The Phillies are Mike Trout’s hometown team, which might be an incentive for Mike Trout to approve a trade with them.

The Angels are likely to enter the market as their owner Arte Moreno has announced he is likely to sell the team. Mike Trout has 10-and-5 rights (10 years in the majors and five years on the same team), so he would have to agree to a move to a team. One team he could approve of is that Philadelphia Phillies.

They’ve been like the Angels for the past few years in not making the playoffs, but right now they’re in a much better position than the Angels. The Phillies are currently in the wild card hunt as they have the second of three NL wild car spots in their grasp (the Padres have the third wild card and are 2.5 games behind the Phillies).

Phillies: A dream trade package to get Mike Trout

Getting Mike Trout (if he’s healthy) might be enough to put the Phillies on top next season … but they’d still have to trade a lot to get him.

RHP Mick Abel

LHP Erik Miller

The Angels are in dire need of some pitching, which is why they’ve been a terrible team for years. Painter just got promoted to Double-A, but he is MLB.com’s #25 overall view. He was Philadelphia’s first round draft pick last year and is held in very high regard. Abel was their first-round pick of 2020. Like Painter, he is in MLB.com’s Top 100 list (57th overall) and was also just promoted to Double-A.

Miller is Philadelphia’s #7 overall prospect, but he’s in triple-A. He’s split the year between rotation and bullpen, but he probably won’t be MLB-ready until 2023.

Stott is off the prospect lists this season as he is a rookie this year, but he was ranked 45th on MLB.com’s top 100 list when he entered the 2022 season.

It would be a lot of money to give up for the Phillies, but for the controllability that Trout offers (if he’s healthy), he’d be worth it for the Phillies.
