Winners and Losers of Anthony Rendon’s Deal With Angels

December 12, 2019 - 9:31 am

You don't have to know Anthony Rendon personally to be able to conclude that 2019 has probably been the best year of his life.

Rendon made his first All-Star team in 2019, and finished third in National League MVP voting after slashing .319/.412/.598 with 34 home runs, 126 RBIs and a 7.0 fWAR.

The 29-year-old also led the Nationals to the first World Series title in their franchise's history, as he hit .328 with three home runs and 15 RBIs in 17 games in the 2019 postseason.

Now, as the year winds down, Rendon has new beginnings to look forward to, as RADIO.COM MLB Insider Jon Heyman first reported that the Angels inked him to a seven-year/$245 million contract Wednesday night.
