Mike Trout is staying with the Los Angeles Angels for a long, long time.

According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, the team is close to signing their star outfielder to a record-breaking 12-year, $430 million contract extension that will carry an annual average of $35.83 million. There will also be no opt-outs in the deal.

Trout has already accomplished a lot in his relatively young career, and solidified himself as the best in the sport by a considerable margin.

The 27-year old, who the Angels selected 25th overall in the 2009 MLB Draft by using the compensatory pick given to them by the New York Yankees after signing Mark Teixeira, has posted a combined .307 batting average, .990 OPS, 240 homers, 648 RBI and 189 stolen bases over a span of eight seasons and 1065 career games.

He has won two American League MVP Awards, and has finished second in MVP voting on four different occasions throughout his career.

He is also a seven-time All-Star, six-time Silver Slugger Award winner, won the AL Rookie of the Year Award and was the stolen base leader in 2012, and took him the AL Hank Aaron Award and finished with the most RBI in the American League in 2014.
