Baseball's youngest super-star is getting the star treatment from the Los Angeles Angels.

Mike Trout signed a $1 million dollar, one year contract with the Angels.

That might not look like a lot of money in baseball super-star contract terms, but its the biggest contract ever given to a pre-arbitration eligible player.

"It makes you feel like they want you here. It means a lot.'', Trout said at spring training in Arizona.

With Trout among the top players in the game, and salary arbitration on the horizon, both sides are looking to secure a long term deal, and rumored negotiations have the next contract for five or six years and between $140 Million and $150 Million.

Trout added; "If the money is where it's at, that's where it's going to be.'' 

Trout has finished second in the American League MVP voting each of his first two seasons in Los Angeles, and was the 2012 AL Rookie of the Year. He also led the AL in runs and walks last season.

The Angels already have the fourth-highest payroll in the AL, including Albert Pujols, who at $23 million will be the sixth-highest paid player in baseball this season
