No team has tried to trade for Mike Trout

Over the course of three years as a professional baseball player for the Angels, Mike Trout has accumulated 572 hits, 98 home runs, 102 stolen bases and more wins above replacement than any player over that span (28.2). He's also maintained a .305 average, made three All-Star appearances and won Rookie of the Year, All-Star MVP, and an AL MVP Award. Oh, and he's only 23.

Chances are you already knew most of that. What you probably didn't know until the Winter Meetings is that no team other than the Angels is interested in Trout's services.

When addressing the media from the Winter Meetings, Angels GM Jerry Dipoto said that he's never fielded a call about a trade for Mike Trout.

Believe it or not, Dipoto has never received a call from another team asking for Trout. If he did? "I will just wait till they're done and say, 'No," Dipoto said. "I will opt not to be rude."

Trout signed a six-year contract extension worth $144 million that should keep him an Angel through the 2020 season, but that's not to say that there isn't a package of players out there that could pry the reigning AL MVP away from the Angels. Isn't Bartolo Colon available? Who would say no?
