TEMPE, Ariz. -- Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon has a business-like relationship with baseball and made it clear on Monday that he has other top priorities in his life.

Rendon, who signed a seven-year deal worth $245 million before the 2020 season, said he’s always had the same view on playing baseball, even back when was drafted by the Nationals as the No. 6 overall pick in 2011. The 33-year-old said his views have only been reinforced since getting married in 2017 and raising four kids.

“This has never been a top priority,” Rendon said. “This is a job. I do this to make a living. My faith and my family come first before this job. So if those things come before it, I’ll move on.”

Rendon, though, said he’s not looking to retire, as he believes he still has plenty to offer and is looking to stay healthy for the first time since the shortened 2020 season. He said he just has a different perspective than other players.

“My enthusiasm has been the same since I got drafted, to be honest,” Rendon said. “I was actually deleting old emails because my storage is getting to the maximum. And so I've been going back deleting old emails. I emailed myself a pros and cons of why I wanted to stay in the game.

This was in 2014. And so my thought process of the game has not changed since then.”
