The Mike Trout net worth story is a grand slam that keeps on going. The star player’s net worth hit the Majors in 2011 with $153,594 and has more than doubled every year since. The table and chart above show how the Mike Trout net worth tale plays out graphically. From 2011 to 2012, Trout’s wealth multiplied by more than triple. The same thing happened again in 2013. In 2014 the earnings snowball slowed some, only doubling from the previous year. It sped right up again for 2015 though, when the Mike Trout net worth number grew by almost 3.5 times its former size. The chart above looks more like a rocket taking off or data on the spread of a mass epidemic than an MLB star’s net worth growth.
Mike Trout Salary
The table below shows every Mike Trout net worth salary figure since the star was brought up from the minors. Trout hit the Majors briefly in 2011, was sent back, then came back for good at the start of 2012. Trout signed single-year contracts every year from 2011 through 2014. 2011 was only a partial MLB year for Trout, with the rest of his time that year spent in the Minors. Even after he was brought up to the Majors, Trout’s salary stayed at around the $500,000 a year mark through 2013. That relatively low salary mark persisted even though Trout was named American League Rookie of the Year in 2012 and stolen base leader the same year. Trout also won the Silver Slugger Award in 2012 and 2013 and was named an MLB All-Star in 2012 and 2013.

Endorsements and Mike Trout Net Worth
Endorsement money has pumped an estimated $41 million into the Mike Trout net worth tank. That’s 64% more than the player has made from his MLB salary. $41 million is only an estimate, but it’s an informed estimate. Trout has no shortage of high dollar sponsors, from Nike to BodyArmor to Subway, with other smaller companies like SuperDrink and the Old Hickory Bat Company. Most sources online put Trout’s 2013 endorsement earnings at $2.3 million. That’s a lot of money, but it doesn’t include the historic deal Trout signed with Nike in mid 2014. That deal is the first MLB signature shoe deal Nike has inked since its agreement with Ken Griffey Jr. The deal’s particulars haven’t been released. That said, it’s not uncommon for Nike to offer $8 million to $15 million or more for a signature shoe endorsement deal. With other deals thrown in, that puts Trout’s sponsor dollars for 2015 and 2016 at around the $15 million to $20 million mark.
