Trumbo was shifted to the 60-day disabled list Tuesday. The move is merely procedural, as Trumbo's already been ruled out for the year after undergoing knee surgery. It clears room on the 40-man roster for the Orioles to select DJ Stewart's contract.
Trumbo had successful surgery to repair the cartilage in his right knee Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Trumbo hopes that he will be back in action for the start of the 2019 season following this procedure. An estimated timetable of six months would put his return right around the beginning of March, though a better indication of his return date will come to light when he resumes baseball activities.
Trumbo will undergo knee surgery Sept. 6 or 7, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports. The procedure will be performed by Dr. Leigh Ann Curl, the team's orthopedist. Trumbo will be sidelined for six months following surgery. He's hoping to be ready for the start of the 2019 season. In 90 games this season, Trumbo hit .261/.313/.452 with 17 homers.
Trumbo will undergo a surgical procedure on his right knee after taking some time to review all his options, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Trumbo hasn't settled on when or where he will undergo the procedure just yet, but this decision confirms that he will be sidelined for the rest of the 2018 season. The 32-year-old realized that there was no other quality option after getting a second opinion with a specialist in California on Wednesday. More should be known regarding his timetable following surgery.
Trumbo could require surgery to address the lingering pain in his right knee, which resulted in his placement on the 10-day disabled list earlier this week, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the team would leave it up to Trumbo whether or not he wants to go undergo a procedure on the knee, a decision he's expected to make in the coming days. Trumbo had previously received an injection to reduce the inflammation in the knee, but it didn't provide enough relief for the 32-year-old to play comfortably on a regular basis. Given the Orioles' status as a non-contender, it wouldn't be surprising if Trumbo elected to pack it in for the season and go under the knife with the goal of entering spring training at full strength.
