A year ago, Mark Trumbo was a free agent coming off a 2016 season in which he led the majors in home runs. The market for Trumbo wasn’t as active as he thought it would be, however, and he ended up re-signing with the Orioles in January.
The designated hitter/outfielder’s three-year, $37.5 million contract seemed reasonable. Not only did Trumbo hit 47 homers in 2016, but he also drove in 108 runs. Those numbers, as well as his .850 OPS, were career highs.
But Trumbo had a startling drop-off in production in 2017, and that has led to speculation that the Orioles could seek to trade him for a starting pitcher.
Read about what could be in store for Trumbo and the O’s from our friends over at PressBox.
