Mark Trumbo is out of the lineup against the White Sox on Friday with a right knee injury.

Trumbo gets the night off while dealing with the knee trouble, and Danny Valencia is getting the start at DH against Chicago and hitting sixth against Dylan Covey. He's considered day-to-day, so Trumbo could be back in the lineup by the end of the week. There's also a chance that he could get placed on the 10-day disabled list if the Orioles aren't confident he'll be back soon.
May 23 - 6:45 PM

Mark Trumbo went 4-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI on Tuesday as the Orioles fell to the White Sox.

Unlike the rest of his teammates, Trumbo had no trouble figuring out James Shields in this one, collecting four of his team's seven total hits in the game. His RBI double got the O's on the board as part of a two-run second inning. Trumbo is now hitting .309/.317/.469 with two homers and eight RBI in his first 82 plate appearances on the season. Fantasy owners should be patient here, the power will come.
May 22 - 11:37 PM

Mark Trumbo hit his second home run of the year Monday in the Orioles' win over the White Sox.

But he struck out in his other three at-bats. Trumbo, 32, is slashing .273/.282/.416 in 19 games since returning May 1 from a severe quadriceps strain. He's drawn one walk against 22 strikeouts.
May 21 - 11:32 PM

Mark Trumbo slugged his first home run of the 2018 season in Friday's victory over the Rays.

His solo shot off of Jake Faria in the seventh inning increased the O's advantage to 7-1. It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the night. Trumbo has been swinging a hot bat since returning from the disabled list and is now hitting .325/.341/.475 with four RBI on the year.
May 11 - 10:19 PM

Orioles activated 1B/DH Mark Trumbo from the 10-day disabled list.

Trumbo missed the first month of the 2018 regular season because of a quad injury. He batted just .208/.269/.250 over 26 plate appearances on his six-game minor league rehab assignment and is probably going to be a borderline guy in standard mixed fantasy leagues.
May 1 - 5:50 PM

Mark Trumbo (quad) is progressing well in his rehab and could return to the Orioles on Tuesday against the Angels.

Trumbo suffered a severe quadriceps strain back in mid-March and has missed the entire regular season thus far. He has been serving a rehab stint at Double-A Bowie in recent days and is expected to spend the weekend with the Triple-A Norfolk squad. If all goes well he will be activated Tuesday for his season debut. He hit 47 home runs in 2016 but halved that with 23 bombs last year.
Apr 26 - 7:25 PM

Mark Trumbo (quad) will resume a rehab assignment at Double-A Bowie on Monday.

Trumbo played one rehab game earlier this month before the Orioles backed off when it was clear he wasn't ready. He's feeling much better now, though. Trumbo will play for Bowie through Wednesday before taking a day off and then moving up to Triple-A Norfolk on Friday if all goes well. He'll need a good number of rehab at-bats before being activated since he missed a chunk of spring training.
Apr 22 - 11:37 AM

Mark Trumbo (quad) did some running Friday and thinks he'll be able to resume a rehab assignment in a few days.

It's good to hear, but he said the same thing a week ago, as well. Trumbo has been out over a month with a Grade 2 strain of his right quad and figures to need a decent number of rehab at-bats before being activated.
Apr 20 - 3:47 PM

Mark Trumbo (quad) could restart his rehab assignment after this weekend.

Trumbo was pulled off his rehab assignment earlier this week because he didn't quite feel 100 percent. "We’re not behind schedule, we’re not ahead of schedule," Trumbo said. "It just goes at its own pace." He's been out since mid-March with a Grade 2 strain of his right quad.
Apr 13 - 5:04 PM

Mark Trumbo (quad) returned to Baltimore after cutting his rehab assignment for Double-A Bowie short.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter told reporters that it wasn't a setback for Trumbo, but rather that he didn't feel well enough to be at 100 percent during the rehab games. He instead will travel to Boston and begin a workout program, and the team will reevaluate his status this weekend.
Apr 11 - 4:43 PM

Mark Trumbo (quad) will begin a rehab assignment at Double-A Bowie on Tuesday.

Trumbo will play for Bowie on Tuesday and Wednesday and should be activated after that assuming all goes well. The veteran slugger has been out all season after straining his right quad in spring training.
Apr 9 - 4:42 PM

Mark Trumbo (quad) played right field in a simulated game Thursday in Sarasota.

Trumbo will try his hand at first base in another simulated game on Friday. It shouldn't be long until the 32-year-old begins a minor league rehab assignment. He's been nursing a quad strain since last month.
Apr 5 - 5:36 PM

Mark Trumbo (quad) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment shortly.

Trumbo suffered a Grade 2 strain of his right quad in mid-March, but he's already moving freely and should join the Orioles' active roster around the middle of April. The veteran slugger posted a disappointing .234/.289/.397 batting line with 23 home runs and 65 RBI over 146 games for Baltimore in 2017.
Apr 1 - 11:55 AM

Orioles placed OF Mark Trumbo on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to March 26 with a right quadriceps strain.

Trumbo was diagnosed with a Grade 2 right quad strain after a Grapefruit League game in the middle of March. He was expected to miss 3-4 weeks with the injury, but recently mentioned he wasn't sure if he'd be ready in that time frame. There's a chance he won't be back until May.
