Mike Trout is on track to earn more than $15 million with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim this season. Next year, he’ll make just upwards of $20 million when you factor in his signing bonus.

Angels’ Mike Trout To Move Out Of Parents’ House

After that, Trout, 24, will average around $33 million in salary through 2020.

The star center fielder revealed that he just recently decided to move out of of the house in south New Jersey he grew up in.

“It was just time,” Trout told BuzzFeed. “I figured it was time to get out of the house.”

It was also reported that Trout, the 2014 American League MVP, will be moving to a 300-acre property just minutes away from his parents’ home.

“It’s just where he wants to be,” his father Jeff said. “He’s a family guy. He loves his [three-legged] dog. He’s close with his mother. He has a great group of friends here he’s had since he was a little kid. He’s very tight with his brother and sister and he loves his niece and nephew. He grew up fishing and hunting and clamming these woods and these waters.”

“His girlfriend lives here. Everyone’s here. He’s a south Jersey kid and it’ll never get out of him.”

Trout’s mother Debbie seemed to agree. “If he has to be showy and all that to be the face of baseball, so be it,” she said. “That’s just not Mike. He just doesn’t like that.”

Trout, a player known for being quiet, also apparently still sends signed baseballs from some of MLB’s best players home in tube socks, and his All-Star Game MVP Corvette stays in his parents’ garage.

In 2014, he also bought his mother a car that looked like a black Infinity SUV as an early mother’s day gift.
