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.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that trade talks between the Mariners and Orioles involving Mark Trumbo are "heating up."

The Mariners apparently aren't keen on giving Trumbo a raise in his final year of arbitration and have been shopping him. He's definitely a fit in Baltimore, as he could play first base or serve as the designated hitter and wouldn't prevent the club from trying to re-sign Chris Davis. Trumbo batted .262/.310/.449 with 22 home runs and 64 RBI for the D'Backs and M's in 2015.

Thomas Harding of reports that the Rockies are no longer talking with the Mariners about a trade for Mark Trumbo.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal previously reported that the Rockies had talked to the Mariners about Trumbo, but apparently that was a while ago. There's always the chance that the two sides could revisit things, but nothing is current and the Rockies could just go with Ben Paulsen at first base. The Mariners have until 11:59 p.m. ET on Wednesday to tender a contract to Trumbo for 2016. They could still elect to tender him a contract before dealing him elsewhere. The Orioles have also reportedly expressed interest.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Orioles are interested in a possible trade with the Mariners for Mark Trumbo.

The Mariners are reportedly pushing hard to trade Trumbo, who is due to make around $9 million via the arbitration process in 2016. With Chris Davis on the open market, he could fit for them at first base or DH. The outfield is also an option, though he would be a liability there. The Rockies have also expressed interest in a trade for Trumbo. There's a chance we could see a resolution by Wednesday's non-tender deadline.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rockies are among the teams who have talked to the Mariners about a trade for Mark Trumbo.

Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune confirms that the Mariners are "trying hard" to move Trumbo. Meanwhile, the Rockies are in the market for a first baseman, so this makes for an intriguing potential match. With the non-tender deadline coming up on Wednesday, Rosenthal writes that the Mariners could tender him a contract before settling on a trade. Trumbo turns 30 in January and batted .262/.310/.449 with 22 home runs and 64 RBI over 142 games this past season. He's due to make around $9 million in his final year of arbitration.

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.

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.
