Trumbo (back) is starting at designated hitter and batting sixth Thursday against the Blue Jays, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. He dealt with a strained left trapezius earlier this week and has dealt with a knee injury recently. Trumbo should play occasionally over the final 10 games of the season. He will be a free agent this winter.
Trumbo (back) will be available off the bench Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Trumbo was scratched from the lineup Monday with what was referred to as a strained left trapezius at the time, though Trumbo referred to the problem as simply tightness in his upper back. He doesn't seem to be in line for an extended absence, but that doesn't mean he's guaranteed many at-bats down the stretch with the Orioles likely preferring to give time to younger options.
Trumbo was scratched from the lineup ahead of Monday's game against the Tigers with a strained left trapezius, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Trumbo doesn't have much time to return if he's dealing with anything more than a very minor strain. The Orioles have very little reason to rush back a 33-year-old in the final year of his contract when they could be giving time to younger players with a chance to be part of their future.
Trumbo went 1-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored Monday against the Rays. Trumbo was activated from the 60-day injured list earlier in the day after missing almost the entire season while recovering from knee surgery, but he came through in the clutch by plating two in the sixth inning on a double to bring his team within a run. The 33-year-old veteran's contract is up after the season, so it remains to be seen how often he'll enter the lineup down the stretch of the 2019 campaign.
Trumbo (knee) was activated from the 60-day injured list and will bat sixth as the designated hitter Monday against the Rays. Trumbo is finally ready to go after undergoing knee surgery last September. It apparently still hurts his knee to play first base, so he's expected to stick to outfield and DH over the rest of the season. It's not clear how often he'll be in the lineup, as the rebuilding Orioles will likely prefer to give at-bats to players who may be part of their future rather than a veteran whose contract is up after this season.
