Mark Trumbo went 3-for-5 with a double and two runs scored against the Tigers on Wednesday.

The good: Trumbo has seven hits in his last 13 at-bats, suggesting he's finding his way at the plate. The bad: Trumbo struck out with two runners on to end the game Wednesday. Still, it was a positive day for a guy who hasn't had many in recent weeks. Trumbo is hitting .237/.272/.417 with a few days left before the break.
Jul 8 - 7:25 PM

Mark Trumbo (back) went 1-for-3 in his return to the Mariners' starting lineup Wednesday.

Trumbo missed three straight games because of back spasms, but he is feeling well enough now. The 29-year-old slugger is just 7-for-41 (.171) with zero home runs and one RBI in 11 games so far with his new team.
Jun 18 - 8:32 AM

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Tuesday that he expects Mark Trumbo (back) to return to the lineup Wednesday.

Trumbo missed a third straight start Tuesday due to back spasms, although he appeared as a pinch-hitter. "It's getting better," McClendon said Tuesday. "If this was the playoffs, he could play. I'd imagine he'll probably be back in [the starting lineup] tomorrow." Trumbo is hitting .158 in 10 games since being acquired by the Mariners.
Jun 16 - 8:50 PM

Mark Trumbo (back) remained out of the Mariners' lineup Monday.

It's the second straight start he's missed due to back spasms. Trumbo is feeling better, though, and will take batting practice prior to the game. He could be back in there on Tuesday.
Jun 15 - 6:40 PM

Mark Trumbo was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to back spasms.

Consider Trumbo, who is hitting just .162/.162/.162 early on with the Mariners, day-to-day. Dustin Ackley has taken his spot in left field.
Jun 14 - 12:24 PM

Mark Trumbo went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Friday's blowout loss to the Astros.

The Mariners acquired Trumbo in hopes that he would provide a jolt to their offense, but it hasn't worked out that way so far. After collecting two hits in his debut last Thursday, he has just two hits in 28 at-bats since.
Jun 13 - 12:14 AM

Mark Trumbo went 1-for-3 in Thursday afternoon's loss to the Indians.

The only other Mariner with a hit in the game was Robinson Cano, who smacked a double. Since coming over to the Mariners in a trade on June 3, Trumbo has just four hits in 28 at-bats and has driven in just one run. The slugger was hitting .259/.299/.506 for the Diamondbacks at the time he was moved. Clearly, he's still settling in to his new home.
Jun 11 - 3:06 PM

Mariners GM Jake Zduriencik said Thursday that Mark Trumbo will primarily play first base and DH.

That figures to cut significantly into Logan Morrison's playing time. Trumbo is not a good defensive outfielder, so the Mariners won't give him as much exposure out there as the Diamondbacks did. What the M's are hoping for most from Trumbo is a jumpstart to their offense, which has struggled in surprising fashion through the first quarter of the 2015 season. Trumbo had a .506 slugging percentage, nine home runs, and 23 RBI in 46 games this year for Arizona. Seattle acquired him on Wednesday along with left-hander Vidal Nuno for C Welington Castillo, RHP Dominic Leone, INF Jack Reinheimer, and OF Gabby Guerrero.
Jun 4 - 2:58 PM

Mariners acquired OF Mark Trumbo and LHP Vidal Nuno from the Diamondbacks for C Welington Castillo, RHP Dominic Leone, INF Jack Reinheimer and OF Gabby Guerrero.

The big name moving in this deal is Trumbo, who has 118 homers in 594 games in the major leagues. The 29-year-old is hitting just. 259/.299/.506 this season but brings some thump to a struggling Mariners club. The M's will have control of Trumbo through the 2016 season.
Jun 3 - 7:35 PM

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports the Mariners have acquired outfielder Mark Trumbo from the Diamondbacks.

It's unclear at this point what the Mariners would give up in a potential deal. Trumbo was acquired from the Angels in 2013 in a three-team trade that sent Adam Eaton and Tyler Skaggs out of the Diamondbacks organization. The club has a wealth of corner outfielders and corner infielders, making Trumbo expendable. More should be known about the reported trade shortly.
Jun 3 - 7:24 PM

Mark Trumbo hit his eighth homer and walked twice versus the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Trumbo hit two homers in the series against the Cardinals, one of several potential suitors for his services this summer. It wouldn't have seemed like a fit a day ago, but with Matt Adams (quad) out for a few months and perhaps the rest of the season, a power-hitting first baseman -- one better than Mark Reynolds -- might be a need for St. Louis.
May 28 - 12:03 AM

Mark Trumbo slugged a game-tying, two-run homer in the eighth inning of Monday's loss to the Cardinals.

His blast after an Ender Inciarte single came off of terrific reliever Kevin Siegrist, as the D'Backs knotted things up before the Cards eventually won in the 10th. Trumbo has given Arizona pretty much what they should have expected this season with a .264/.303/.507 batting line and seven home runs.
May 25 - 7:49 PM

Mark Trumbo homered twice to help the Diamondbacks rout the Nationals in Tuesday's win.

Trumbo struck the big blow in a five-run fourth inning with a three-run home run off of Stephen Strasburg. He homered again in the sixth, a solo shot that began a four-run frame. He finished 2-for-5 on the night. Trumbo has six home runs on the year along with 19 RBI and a .292/.318/.575 triple-slash line.
May 13 - 12:42 AM

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-4 with a homer and two runs scored in Thursday's victory over the Padres.

This is what the Diamondbacks thought they were acquiring prior to last season. Trumbo is slashing .304/.333/.565 with four homers, six doubles and three triples across 92 at-bats. He's clubbed homers in consecutive contests.
