Mike Trout makes statement on MLB lockout


Mike Trout issued a statement regarding the MLB lockout on Twitter on Wednesday.

The Los Angeles Angels outfielder showed support from his teammates and solidarity with the MLBPA at his post.

“I want to play, I love our game, but I know we have to get this CBA right,” Trout wrote. “Instead of negotiating in good faith — MLB locked us out. Instead of negotiating a fair deal, Rob canceled games.

“The players stand together. For our game, for our fans and for every player who comes after us. We owe that to the next generation.”

During the last negotiations, Trout also retweeted some of his colleagues’ comments on the collective agreement negotiations.

MLB announced on Tuesday the cancellation of the first two series of the 2022 season. The cancellation came in response to players Tuesday unanimously rejecting MLB’s final CBA proposal to players.

Trout, 30, is a three-time AL MVP. He only played 36 games last season due to a calf injury.

Trout has earned nearly $190 million during his career and is reported to make another $334 million.
