How the Angels can convince Mike Trout to stay

Shohei Ohtani's status set off more "Is it time to trade Trout?" questions. The Halos aren't dealing the best player in baseball, but can they keep him beyond 2020?

Shohei Ohtani since the start of August: .366 batting average, 15 extra-base hits, 7 stolen bases. Mike Scioscia pregame: "If he continues to do what he's doing, you're looking at the Rookie of the Year."

Shohei Ohtani homers again, Angels beat White Sox 5-2
