Sports log: Mike Trout’s new contract angers agent


The Angels renewed the contract of AL Rookie of the Year Mike Trout for $510,000, prompting an angry response from the outfielder’s agent. Craig Landis said his client was disappointed with the decision announced Saturday. The salary is $20,000 above the major league minimum. ‘‘During the process, on behalf of Mike, I asked only that the Angels compensate Mike fairly for his historic 2012 season, given his service time,’’ Landis said in a statement. ‘‘In my opinion, this contract falls well short of a ‘fair’ contract and I have voiced this to the Angels throughout the process. Nonetheless, the renewal of Mike’s contract will put an end to this discussion.’’ Trout had a $482,500 salary last year, when he finished second to Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera in AL MVP voting . . .
