Mark Trumbo went 3-for-6 with a grand slam against the Yankees on Friday.
Long time no see. The sixth-inning granny just his second home run of the season and his first since Opening Day. Trumbo owns a disappointing .212/.247/.318 batting line through 21 games. Perhaps Friday’s blast will get him going. Apr 28 - 11:32 PM

Mark Trumbo finished 0-for-4 with a strikeout Sunday in the Orioles' loss to the Red Sox.

Trumbo is batting just .227/.271/.318 in 17 games this season for Baltimore. His one home run this year was back on Opening Day against the Blue Jays.
Apr 23 - 5:17 PM

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-4 and scored the decisive run in Wednesday's win over the Reds.

He led off the second inning with a single to left, moved to third on a Wellington Castillo double, and scored on a Jonathan Schoop single. That was the first run of the game and since the Reds never scored it was the only one the Orioles needed, although they did score again in the fifth. Trumbo has started a bit slow this season. He boosted his batting average up to .250 with the two hits. He has just one homer so far after hitting a career-high 47 last year.
Apr 19 - 10:11 PM

Mark Trumbo finished 2-for-3 with a walk, an RBI, and a run scored in the Orioles' loss to the Yankees on Sunday.

Trumbo drew that walk in the bottom of the second and scored the O's first run of the game a few minutes later on a groundout by Trey Mancini. Trumbo then put Baltimore up 3-0 with an RBI single in the bottom of the fifth, but New York would go on to score seven unanswered runs. Trumbo also had a productive game Saturday and he slugged a walkoff home run on Opening Day against the Blue Jays. The big slugger is off to a decent start in 2017.
Apr 9 - 5:18 PM

Mark Trumbo went 1-for-4 with two RBI and a rare stolen base in Saturday's defeat of the Yankees.

Trumbo grounded out to shortstop to drive in his first run in the fifth inning. In the seventh frame he singled to center to drive in Chris Davis with the tying run, then stole second base and dashed home to score the go-ahead run on a single by Hyun-Soo Kim. Trumbo stole only two bases last year and none the year before. He has just three hits in his first 16 at-bats, leaving him with a .188 batting average, one home run and four RBI.
Apr 8 - 8:13 PM

Mark Trumbo slugged a walkoff home run in the bottom of the 11th inning Monday as the Orioles earned a 3-2 victory over the Blue Jays on Opening Day.

Trumbo contributed an RBI double to Baltimore's two-run first inning against Blue Jays starter Marco Estrada and then sent Orioles fans home happy with a walkoff shot to left field against veteran reliever Jason Grilli. He finished 2-for-5 with a run scored and two RBI. Trumbo didn't find the kind of contract he was hoping for this winter in free agency, but he remains a premier power option for fantasy purposes.
Apr 3 - 7:06 PM

Mark Trumbo had three hits, including a couple of doubles, Monday against the Red Sox.

It's a start. Trumbo had been hitting just .177 with one extra-base hit (a double) in 41 at-bats this spring.
Mar 27 - 5:23 PM

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-3 and drove in a run in a 7-6 win over the Pirates on Saturday.

It has been a rough spring for Trumbo so far. He carries a .211 batting average and has yet to hit a home run through 19 at-bats. It is nothing to worry about as he still has three weeks to get in a groove before Opening Day. He exploded for 47 home runs and 108 RBI along with his .256 batting average last year.
Mar 11 - 5:49 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter announced Saturday that Mark Trumbo will see more time at first base in 2017 in an effort to keep Chris Davis fresh.

Trumbo appeared in 96 games in the outfield in 2016 but saw just six games at first base. With the designated hitter spot freed up in the O's lineup, expect Showalter to find ways to give Trumbo and Davis plenty of breaks throughout the season. In leagues that require 10 or 20 games played at a position to earn eligibility, it sounds like Trumbo could gain some valuable versatility at some point during the season.

Orioles re-signed DH/1B/OF Mark Trumbo to a three-year, $37.5 million contract.

The deal was reported Thursday and is now official after Trumbo passed his physical. Jim Bowden of ESPN and Sirius XM adds that the contract also includes a limited no-trade clause that allows Trumbo to block a deal to seven teams. Trumbo was reportedly asking for $80 million just last month, but the market for power this winter simply hasn't been nearly as robust as the free agents had hoped. He will be the Orioles' primary designated hitter, although it's possible he could play some right field and first base.
Jan 20 - 11:04 AM

Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports that Mark Trumbo could play right field against left-handers this season.

Trumbo played nearly 100 games in right field last season but will be the Orioles' primary designated hitter in 2017. However, it's possible he could move out to right versus southpaws in order to free up DH at-bats for Trey Mancini, who made a great first impression in his brief time in the majors last year.
Jan 20 - 9:03 AM

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, Mark Trumbo is getting a three-year, $37.5 million deal from the Orioles.

The deal is done and Trumbo is reportedly taking a physical to make it official. He'll ultimately get slightly under the Orioles' original offer of three years and $40 million. Trumbo was aiming higher, reportedly around $80 million, but the market didn't play out like he was hoping. In the end, this situation played out a lot like things did between the Orioles and Chris Davis last offseason.
Jan 19 - 6:22 PM

Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports that Mark Trumbo is taking a physical for the Orioles.

Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun confirms that a deal is done, so a physical is the final step to making it official. According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, Trumbo is getting a three-year deal around $37 million. Some slight deferrals are included, lowering the present-day value of the deal. Usually we think of physicals as a formality in these situations, but the Orioles are known to be sticklers with this sort of thing. However, assuming all goes well, the deal should be official soon.
Jan 19 - 5:58 PM

According to Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports, the Orioles and slugger Mark Trumbo are close to a three-year deal.

Meanwhile, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the deal is expected to check in under $40 million. That's a far cry from the $80 million he was reportedly seeking at one point. Rosenthal recently reported that Trumbo was willing to take a three-year deal in the $40-50 million range, but he's running out of places to go, so there's not much leverage for him at this point. The Orioles were intrigued about getting a draft pick for Trumbo, but it's hard to complain about the price if this deal comes to fruition. Stay tuned.
Jan 19 - 5:28 PM

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Orioles and Mark Trumbo are "getting close" to a deal.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal is hearing the same thing, so it sounds like this has a legitimate chance to get done. The Orioles could have netted a compensatory draft pick if Trumbo signed elsewhere, but he's running out of places to go and his price might have fallen to the point where a reunion makes the most sense. Peter Gammons recently reported that the Orioles' original offer to Trumbo was only for three years and $40 million. We might soon find out who was willing to budge.
