ESPN's Jerry Crasnick was told by several rival executives that they expect the Mariners to trade Mark Trumbo this offseason.
Trumbo currently projects to be the primary first baseman in 2016, but a lot can change over the winter. It's worth noting that new Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto, formerly with the Angels, has traded him before. Trumbo projects to make in excess of $9 million in his final year of arbitration. He turns 30 in January and batted .262/.310/.449 with 22 home runs and 64 RBI over 142 games this past season. Nov 24 - 10:12 AM

Mark Trumbo went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Angels.

Trumbo pinch-hit for John Hicks in the eighth inning and came through well enough, smashing a game-tying solo home run off Angels reliever Fernando Salas. Alas for Trumbo and the M's, the Angels would come right back with a run of their own in the bottom of the frame. The 29-year-old slugger has hit 13 homers in 90 games with the Mariners since being traded from the Diamondbacks earlier this season.

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI against the Royals on Thursday.

After a rough start, Trumbo has hit .261 with 12 homers in 307 at-bats for the Mariners. It's not quite what the team was hoping for from him, but it's not all that far off from what should have been expected. For fantasy purposes, he'd be a better bet going forward if he was shipped elsewhere this winter. Still, it's been demonstrated this year that it's far from impossible for a right-handed hitter to crush 40 homers while playing in Safeco.

Mark Trumbo continued hitting balls out of the yard Tuesday, belting his 20th home run of the season against the Astros.

The homer, a two-run shot in the fifth inning, was his only hit in four at-bats. It was the third homer for Trumbo in the last two games and his 20th overall, marking the fourth time he's reached the 20-homer milestone in his career. Trumbo is hitting .252/.299/.456 with 53 RBI and 50 runs on the year.

Mark Trumbo went yard twice on Monday, but the Mariners still lost to the Astros.

Trumbo tied the game at 1-1 with a solo home run to the second deck in right field in the second inning. He then made a modest attempt to overcome a seven-run deficit in the ninth inning, clubbing a two-run shot to left-center. Trumbo closes out the month of August having hit seven home runs and knocking in 14 runs. Overall, he's hitting .248/.300/.410 with 10 home runs and 28 RBI since joining the Mariners in early June.

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 11-5 loss to the Athletics.

Trumbo finished off the Mariners' five-run third inning with a solo home run to left field off of Evan Scribner. He's now on a seven-game hitting streak and has homered three times in his last four games. His numbers are still subpar, however, batting .246/.295/.398 with eight home runs and 24 RBI since joining the Mariners.

Mark Trumbo (knee) returned to the Mariners starting lineup on Sunday, going 1-for-3 plus a walk in a victory over the White Sox.

Trumbo was scratched from the lineup on Saturday due to soreness in his left knee, but it appears to have been a very minor issue. He's hitting .249/.293/.437 with 16 homers and 46 RBI in 105 games between the Mariners and D'Backs this season.

Mark Trumbo was scratched from the Mariners' starting lineup on Saturday due to a sore left knee.

Brad Miller got the start in right field instead. Trumbo is considered day-to-day for now. He seems unlikely to play in Sunday afternoon's series finale against the White Sox.

Mark Trumbo homered to give the Mariners all three of their runs off Chris Sale on Friday.

After a hideous start to his Mariners career, Trumbo has hit .290 with six homers in 131 at-bats since the beginning of July. He's still not a great mixed-league option while hitting in the bottom half of Seattle's order, but he might be good for another 8-10 homers the rest of the way.

Mark Trumbo went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Rangers.

Down 3-0 in the fifth, Trumbo cracked a solo home run against Rangers starter Derek Holland. It was the M's first run of the game, but the team would ultimately fall by a score of 7-2. After hitting .259/.299/.506 with the Diamondbacks over 174 at-bats, he's slashing just .240/.288/.365 across 200 at-bats with the Mariners.

Mark Trumbo walked and hit a three-run home run in five plate appearances in Tuesday's 10-inning win versus the Orioles.

Trumbo struck the big blow in the Mariners' four-run first inning with a three-run blast off of Chris Tillman. It was a sign of life from the slugger, who hasn't done much since joining the Mariners in early June. He's hitting .239/.289/.361 in the American League with five home runs and 19 RBI. He has 14 home runs and 42 RBI overall.
Aug 12 - 1:42 AM

Mark Trumbo had a rough day at the dish against his former club on Wednesday, going 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

It was a tough afternoon for most M's hitters against Patrick Corbin, though Trumbo's ineptitude stood out. He's now hitting just .245/.284/.424 on the season with 12 homers and 36 RBI.
Jul 29 - 7:47 PM

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.
