Trout, 27, is set to sign a contract extension that will pay him a total of over $430 million until he’s 39 years old. Born in New Jersey, Trout was picked by the Angels in the first round in 2009.

They would be Bryce Harper, who recently signed a 13-year, $330 million contracts with the Philadelphia Phillies, and Manny Machado, who recently signed a 10-year, $300 million contracts with the San Diego Padres.

Another thing to consider about the pay of baseball players is that they generally make a lot less from endorsements. For example, according to Forbes, Trout made $2.5 million from endorsements last year. His sponsors include BodyArmor, Rawlings, Topps, Nike NKE, -1.14% By comparison, the best players in the NBA made more than 20 times that much — LeBron James made $52 million in endorsement money last year and Steph Curry made $42 million.
