Mike Trout has been pulled into the fantasy football dispute between Tommy Pham and Joc Pederson, but for now he is taking a diplomatic approach to questions raised about his role.
Trout is the commissioner of the fantasy football league that sparked a heated dispute between Pham and Pederson. On Tuesday, Pham threw Trout under the bus, calling the Angels star “the worst commissioner in fantasy sports” for failing to solve Pederson’s alleged cheating.
Naturally, Trout was asked about his role in the fantasy football scandal, but he took a relaxed approach on Wednesday. He would not commit to resigning as commissioner of the league for 2022, and refused to say whether or not Pederson broke any rules.
