Trumbo isn't in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays. Trumbo has started five of the Orioles' last seven games. In that time, he's picked up just one hit over 16 at-bats and struck out eight times. Pedro Alvarez will start Sunday's game at designated hitter and bat seventh with Trumbo out.
Trumbo is not in the lineup Friday against the Rays. Over the last three games, Trumbo has gone 0-for-9 and struck out five times across 10 plate appearances. He'll head to the bench Friday night while Pedro Alvarez serves as Baltimore's designated hitter and hits eighth.
Trumbo is out of the lineup Monday against the Red Sox. For the second time over the last four games, Trumbo is being withheld from the lineup. He went 0-for-3 on Sunday and has posted a weak .196 batting average over the last 14 games. Pedro Alvarez will serve as Baltimore's designated hitter Monday night.
Trumbo is not in the lineup Saturday against the Yankees. Trumbo will get a chance to clear his head Saturday while Tim Beckham slides over to the DH spot. Over his last nine games, Trumbo is just 4-for-29 with one extra-base hit and two RBI.
Trumbo went 3-for-6 with a solo home run and a walkoff single in Sunday's 12-inning victory over Toronto. A year removed from leading MLB with 47 bombs, Trumbo's latest homer was just his 21st of the campaign. Entering this year, not many expected the slugger to repeat his 2016 career season, but it's safe to say the masses weren't anticipating this either. Before breaking through Sunday, Trumbo was sporting a career-low slugging percentage (.408) and OPS (.707).
