Los Angeles Notes: Angels, Dodgers, Trout, Wilson

Here's a look at the latest from the two L.A. teams..

  • The Angels gave star outfielder Mike Trout a $510K contract for next season, just $20K over the MLB minimum, and agent Craig Landis voiced his displeasure in a statement, writes Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com.  Gonzalez writes that the Halos didn't want to set a precedent for their other players and they don’t feel that it'll hinder their ability to sign him to a long-term extension.  For his part, Landis says that the figure "falls well short" of a fair deal.
  • The Dodgers have an embarrassment of riches on the mound at a time when most teams are searching for their fourth and fifth starter, writes Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register.  While there's likely a trade candidate or two on the Dodgers, GM Ned Colletti says that he's happy to hang on to his surplus.
  • After signing a five-year, $77.5MM deal with the Angels last winter, C.J. Wilson didn't get off to the greatest start with his new club.  However, the hurler says that he's finally healthy and ready to have a bounceback year, Gonzalez writes.
