Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Thursday that Mark Trumbo could play some first base during the team's series against the White Sox this weekend.
Trumbo has made the bulk of his starts this season in right field, though he has also seen time at DH and left field. He has actually started more games at first base than any other position during his career, but Chris Davis has been the primary option there so far this season. Apr 28 - 4:51 PM

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the Rays.

The run batted in gave Trumbo 17 RBI on the season, third-most in the American League. The two-hit game also extended his hitting streak to 11 games. In all, the 30-year-old has hit safely in 17 of 19 games to compile a .373/.405/.613 line on the year.

Mark Trumbo went 3-for-5 with four RBI in Saturday's win over the Royals.

Trumbo had an RBI single in the third inning and added a two-run single an inning later. He also doubled in the game. The outfielder is riding an eight-game hitting streak -- a rare accomplishment for Trumbo, who isn't known for his contact ability -- that has him up to second in the American League with a .381 batting average. He has five home runs and 15 RBI as well, a couple things for which he's better known.

Mark Trumbo clobbered a pair of home runs in the seventh inning on Friday, helping to propel the Orioles to an 11-5 victory over the Rangers.

The O's entered the seventh inning trailing 5-1 until Trumbo got the party started with a two-run blast off Tom Wilhelmsen. His teammates followed suit, as Jonathan Schoop and Nolan Reimold also left the yard. Trumbo then put the exclamation point on the nine-run innings with a three-run shot off of Andrew Faulkner. He has been one of the hottest hitters on the planet in the early going, slashing .400/.429/.800 with five homers and 11 RBI.

Mark Trumbo hit his third home run of the season in a loss to the Rangers on Thursday.

Trumbo took Rangers starter Cole Hamels out to right in the fourth inning to give the Orioles a short-lived lead. It was his only hit in four at-bats. The 30-year-old has been one of the stars of the Orioles' hot start, batting .389/.421/.667 with three homers, six RBI and seven runs scored through nine games.

Mark Trumbo fell a triple shy of the cycle in Tuesday's victory over the Red Sox.

Trumbo notched a single in the first inning, was hit by a pitch in the fourth, smacked a two-run homer in the sixth and rapped a double in the seventh. The outfielder's first nine hits of the season were singles, but he's now homered in two straight contests. Trumbo is batting .464/.500/.714 for the undefeated Orioles.

Mark Trumbo smacked a three-run homer in Monday’s win over the Red Sox.

Trumbo finished the day 1-for-5, but he made his one hit count with a blast to right-center off David Price in the top of the third. It was his first home run this season. Oddly, Trumbo’s previous 10 hits this season were all singles. While his outfield defense isn’t pretty, he has a chance at 30 home runs with regular at-bats in this lineup.
Apr 11 - 5:54 PM

Mark Trumbo went 4-for-5 with four singles against the Twins in his Orioles debut on Monday.

He even managed a stolen base after not stealing a single one last season. The O's didn't really trade for Trumbo in hopes that he'd hit a bunch of singles (or steal bases), but they'll take it. He's hitting cleanup in a Baltimore lineup that's going to score a bunch of runs, so there's certainly appeal here from a fantasy perspective even though Trumbo is a flawed player.
Apr 4 - 8:59 PM

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-3 and hit his fourth spring homer to help the Orioles edge out the Pirates 6-5 on Thursday.

Trumbo should be good for about 30 homers this year, but his fantasy value did dip a bit with the signing of Pedro Alvarez and the news that Trumbo would primarily be used as an outfielder. It increases the chances of an injury for him, and he'll probably lose the occasional at-bat because of the need to remove him for a defensive replacement in right.
Mar 24 - 5:27 PM

Mark Trumbo blasted a three-run homer on Friday, helping to power the Orioles to an 11-2 victory over the Yankees in Grapefruit League action.

Trumbo also singled in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-4. He has been swinging an extremely hot stick in his first spring camp with the O's, hitting .297 with a pair of homers and eight RBI. He should provide plenty of run production hitting in the middle of a stacked Orioles lineup in 2016.
Mar 18 - 11:17 PM

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-3 with a homer off Toronto's Brad Penny on Friday.

If only Penny were likely to pitch in regular-season games for the Jays this year. Trumbo is off to a 3-for-6 start this spring. Last year, he hit .421 with four homers and seven doubles in 57 at-bats in Cactus League action.
Mar 4 - 5:33 PM

Orioles and 1B/OF Mark Trumbo avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $9.15 million contract.

Baltimore acquired Trumbo from the Mariners in early December and will pay the slugger a hefty chunk of change in his final year of arbitration eligibility. He can become a free agent after the 2016 season, assuming the O's don't try for a multi-year extension. Trumbo, 29, should be an excellent source of power this year in mixed fantasy leagues with half his games set to be played at homer-happy Camden Yards.
Jan 14 - 11:39 AM

Orioles acquired OF/1B Mark Trumbo and LHP C.J. Riefenhauser from the Mariners for C Steve Clevenger.

The trade was first reported by Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. Trumbo hit .262/.310/.449 with 22 homers and 64 RBI across 508 at-bats between the Diamondbacks and Mariners in 2015. The 29-year-old can play the outfield, but he could also slot in as a DH or first baseman, meaning that this trade doesn't necessarily diminish the chances of the Orioles re-signing slugger Chris Davis. Now in his final year of arbitration, Trumbo is set to make somewhere in the ballpark of $9 million in 2016.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Orioles have completed a trade to acquire Mark Trumbo from the Mariners in exchange for Steve Clevenger.

Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune is hearing that the O's will also get an additional player in the swap. Trumbo is due to make around $9 million in his final year of arbitration and is coming off a down season that saw him bat .262/.310/.449 with 22 home runs and 64 RBI. Still, it looks like a modest price to pay for a potential 30-homer bat. Trumbo can either play first base or serve as the designated hitter, so his acquisition doesn't necessarily rule out Baltimore re-signing Chris Davis.

Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports that the Mariners have "closed in" on a trade that would send Mark Trumbo to the Orioles for Steve Clevenger.

It comes on the heels of CBS Sports' Jon Heyman saying talks between the two clubs were "heating up." Dutton's source does say that "there’s still some details to be worked out," with the Orioles possibly demanding an additional player in the deal. However, it appears likely that this one is going to get done before Wednesday night's deadline to tender arbitration-eligible players. Trumbo is eligible for arbitration for a final time this winter.
