Angels' Trout signs one-year deal for $1 million

The Los Angeles Angels signed outfielder Mike Trout to a record one-year, $1 million contract on Wednesday and hope to reach agreement on a long-term deal by the end of the spring.

The Los Angeles Times reported that a proposed extension would be for approximately six years and $150 million. With Trout under contract for the 2014 season, the Angels would be able to sign him to a new long-term contract and not have it count against their luxury tax until 2015.

The $1 million pre-arbitration salary tops the previous high of $900,000 received by Albert Pujols from the St. Louis Cardinals in 2003 and Ryan Howard from the Philadelphia Phillies in 2007.

Ex-NFL Star Hernandez involved in scuffle

Former National Football League star Aaron Hernandez, charged with shooting a friend to death last year, was involved in a Massachusetts jailhouse scuffle with another inmate that left neither man seriously injured, law enforcement officials said on Wednesday.

"There was an altercation between two inmates in our special management unit, and one of them was Aaron Hernandez," said Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson. "It was stopped very quickly by my staff."

Neither inmate involved in the incident on Tuesday required medical attention, and officials are investigating whether Hernandez or the other man, who was not identified, will face internal disciplinary measures or criminal charges, Hodgson said.
