Mark Trumbo will reject the Orioles' one-year, $17.2 million qualifying offer.
Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan reported earlier Monday that the market for Trumbo was "bustling," so it comes as no surprise that the slugger will test out free agency. Trumbo can't play defense and gets on base at a low clip, but you can bet there will be teams willing to overlook those facts since he's coming off a season where he slugged a major league-leading 47 home runs.

According to Yahoo's Jeff Passan, the market for Mark Trumbo is "bustling."

There was some recent chatter that Trumbo might accept a one-year, $17.2 million qualifying offer from the Orioles, but that's not going to happen. Trumbo will be looking for a major payout this winter after tallying an MLB-best 47 home runs with 108 RBI in 2016. At age 30, he is younger than pretty much every other available impact hitter on the market this winter. He's also a very poor defensive outfielder. It's a little unclear what kind of offers Trumbo might command, but he is going to do very well for himself.

Mark Trumbo was named the winner of the 2016 Players Choice Award for AL Comeback Player.

Trumbo wasn't coming back from injury, surgery or anything in that vain. No, he came back from good old fashioned ineffectiveness. The 30-year-old slugger hit .262/.310/.449 with 22 homers and 64 RBI while playing for the Diamondbacks and Mariners in 2015. The Orioles proceeded to scooped him up off the offseason discard pile and he went on to slash .256/.316/.533 with 47 homers and 108 RBI during the 2016 season. Both the homer and RBI tallies stand as the best of his career.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Orioles "intend to try to keep" Mark Trumbo.

Trumbo is sure to decline the Orioles' one-year, $17.2 million qualifying offer after slugging an MLB-best 47 home runs in 2016, but a return to Baltimore as part of a longer and more lucrative contract remains a distinct possibility. Trumbo will fish around for big bids on the open market first. A poor defender his entire career, the 30-year-old slugger makes for an interesting (and rather unpredictable) free agent case.

Orioles extended a one-year, $17.2 million qualifying offer to OF/1B Mark Trumbo.

Trumbo earned the offer after belting a major league leading 47 home runs for the Orioles this season. While no doubt one of the premiere power hitters on the market this winter, Trumbo seems likely to be overpaid by some team given his pedestrian career .251/.303/.473 batting line. He'll turn 31 in January.
Nov 7 - 5:32 PM

Mark Trumbo ripped four hits Saturday in the Orioles' loss to the Yankees.

It was a big loss for the Orioles, who are now only a half game clear of Toronto and one game ahead of Detroit in the AL Wild Card race. At least Trumbo did his part with three singles and a double. Trumbo couldn't have asked for a better contract year. He leads MLB with 47 home runs and is tied for sixth in the American League with 107 RBI. The 30-year-old is going to get a huge deal this offseason.

Mark Trumbo mashed his MLB-leading 47th homer in Friday’s win over the Yankees.

Mark Trumbo went 1-for-4 and drilled his 46th home run of the season on Wednesday versus the Blue Jays.

His eighth inning bomb provided the Orioles' first run of the game and they took the lead in the ninth. He has a .250 batting average with 90 runs and 106 RBI. His 46 bombs lead the major leagues. He hit just 22 home runs last year.

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-3 with his 45th home run of the year in Saturday's win over the Diamondbacks.

The homer was Trumbo's second in as many days. Every new dinger adds to Trumbo's already impressive year, as he's got a career-high 45 homers with 104 RBI and 89 runs scored. The free agent-to-be is going to get paid in a big way this winter.
Sep 24 - 11:00 PM

Mark Trumbo blasted a walk-off solo homer in the 12th inning on Friday, delivering the Orioles a much-needed 3-2 victory over the Diamondbacks.

With the victory, the O's kept pace in the battle for the second wild card, sitting half of a game behind the Tigers. In typical Orioles fashion, all of their scoring came via the long ball. Pedro Alvarez got the club on the board with a solo shot in the eighth, Matt Wieters tied it with a blast in the ninth and Trumbo with the game-winner in the 12th. He finished the night 2-for-5 and is now slashing .247/.309/.521 with 44 homers and 103 RBI on the year.

It was a go-ahead solo shot in the bottom of the eighth inning against Rays reliever Ryan Garton. Trumbo also singled earlier in the game, finishing 2-for-4 in the afternoon victory at Camden Yards. He boasts an .836 OPS and 101 RBI in 146 games this season, to go along with the 43 longballs.

Mark Trumbo (back) is back in the Orioles' lineup Sunday.

He missed the last two games with back spasms. Trumbo is in right field and batting cleanup against Jake Odorizzi and the Rays. The O's also have Caleb Joseph at catcher over Matt Wieters.

Mark Trumbo (back) remains out of the Orioles starting lineup on Saturday.

The club had hoped that he would be ready to go on Saturday after sitting out Friday's contest. He reported improvement on Saturday and could be available off the bench as a pinch-hitter. Once again, Michael Bourn is starting in his place.
Sep 17 - 3:55 PM

Mark Trumbo is not in Friday's lineup due to back spasms.

The good news is that the Orioles are hoping he'll be ready to play Saturday, so it doesn't appear to be a big deal at the moment. Michael Bourn is in right field Friday.
Sep 16 - 4:42 PM

Mark Trumbo is not in the Orioles' lineup Friday.
