Top Mark Trumbo News

  • Orioles' Mark Trumbo: Back in action Thursday

    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.

  • Orioles' Mark Trumbo: Available off bench

    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.

  • Orioles' Mark Trumbo: Scratched with strain

    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.

  • Orioles' Mark Trumbo: Drives home two in season debut

    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.

  • Orioles' Mark Trumbo: Set for season debut

    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.

  • Orioles' Mark Trumbo: Ready for rehab assignment

    Trumbo (knee) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday.

    Trumbo is nearly ready to return from last September's knee surgery. He's expected to play in five games before joining the Orioles in September, though the team doesn't have much reason to give regular at-bats to Trumbo over the handful of younger alternatives. He's a free agent after this season.

  • Orioles' Mark Trumbo: Approaching rehab assignment

    Trumbo (knee) expects to join Triple-A Norfolk for a rehab assignment Aug. 27, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

    Trumbo would play five games before returning to major-league action for the first time since undergoing knee surgery in September of 2018. The veteran designated hitter posted a .261/.313/.452 triple slash with 17 home runs and 44 RBI in 90 games last season. With Trumbo approaching free agency this offseason, Baltimore likely will give playing time to younger players who have better odds of playing a part in the franchise's future.

  • Orioles' Mark Trumbo: Rehab assignment likely

    Trumbo (knee) will probably go out on a rehab assignment to prepare for a September activation, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

    He has not played a big-league game this season, and it's unclear what type of role he will fill when rosters expand in September. Trumbo is a free agent after the season, so it seems likely that Baltimore would prefer to give playing time to younger players who may be a part of the future.

  • Orioles' Mark Trumbo: Hoping to return in September

    Trumbo (knee) is hoping to return sometime in September, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

    Trumbo experienced renewed soreness in his surgically repaired knee over the weekend, prompting the veteran slugger to take a break from his rehab assignment. The 33-year-old acknowledged that his status for next season will likely depend on how he feels if he's able to return in September.

  • Orioles' Mark Trumbo: Pauses rehab assignment

    Trumbo (knee) will take a break from his rehab assignment for a few days due to lingering knee issues, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

    Trumbo only began the rehab stint Tuesday and played in two games, so the fact he's having trouble after such brief action isn't a good sign. Per Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun, the 33-year-old still hopes to play this season, but his surgically repaired right knee simply doesn't feel right.

  • Orioles' Mark Trumbo: Resumes rehab assignment

    Trumbo (knee) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday.

    Trumbo has been on the injured list all season while recovering from last September's knee surgery. He'd been on a rehab assignment earlier in the season before being shut down after receiving a PRP injection in mid-June. Trumbo may need close to the full 20 days allowed for rehabbing position players to get back up to speed.

  • Orioles' Mark Trumbo: Takes on-field BP

    Trumbo (knee) took batting practice on the field Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

    Trumbo's knee is reportedly feeling much better, though the Orioles still don't know when he could go out on a rehab assignment. They are optimistic that he'll be able to return from the injured list at some point this season, however. Trumbo hasn't played in the big leagues yet this year after undergoing knee surgery in September of 2018.

  • Orioles' Mark Trumbo: Feeling better

    Manager Brandon Hyde said Trumbo (knee) is "feeling better," Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    While Trumbo is improving, it remains to be seen when the veteran slugger will be cleared to resume baseball activities. Until that happens, he should be considered out indefinitely.

  • Orioles' Mark Trumbo: Shut down after PRP injection

    Trumbo will be shut down for 7-to-10 days after receiving a PRP injection in his right knee, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

    Trumbo experienced renewed soreness in his surgically repaired right knee, prompting the Orioles to pull him off his rehab assignment Thursday. The veteran slugger had appeared in eight games between Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk and was seemingly close to a return before suffering the setback. A new timetable for his return likely won't emerge until he's able to resume his rehab.

  • Orioles' Mark Trumbo: Sitting out Thursday

    Trumbo (knee) is not in Thursday's lineup for Triple-A Norfolk.

    The Orioles are seemingly easing their veteran player back into form after the 33-year-old was cleared for action following September knee surgery. The power hitter has played in eight games between Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk thus far, slashing .214/.333/.393 to go along with three extra-base hits, including a home run. If he can find his rhythm at the plate and avoid setbacks, he could return to the major-league squad early next week.
