Why Did MLB Home Run King Mark Trumbo Come so Cheap to Orioles?

Major League Baseball's reigning home run champion has a new contract, and it's not the most expensive contract signed this winter. Not even close. Mark Trumbo, he of the league-leading 47 home runs in 2016, agreed to return to the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday. Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports was first with the details of his new deal: And that's all there is to it. According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, there's no opt-out in Trumbo's contract. He'll be an Oriole for three more years, spanning his age-31 season to his age-33 season. With that, we now know the terms of the 11th-largest contract signed this winter. Trumbo's deal ranks just ahead of the three-year, $33 million pact that Kendrys Morales signed with the Toronto Blue Jays. The group of 10 players ahead of him is headlined by Yoenis Cespedes at four years and $110 million and also includes three relievers (Aroldis Chapman, Kenley Jansen ...




Mark Trumbo Re-Signs with Orioles: Latest Contract Details, Comments, Reaction

Outfielder Mark Trumbo agreed to re-sign with the Baltimore Orioles on Friday, the team announced.  Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun first reported the deal on Thursday.  According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the three-year deal is for $37.5 million. ESPN's Jim Bowden reported Trumbo has a limited no-trade clause for seven teams and incentivized, tiered bonuses dependent on how many times he wins the Silver Slugger award.  Trumbo, 31, had a career year for the Orioles in 2016, hitting .256 with 47 home runs—the most in the major leagues—and 108 RBI. His home run and RBI totals were both career highs. While Trumbo flashed excellent power earlier in his career—from 2011 to 2013, he hit 95 home runs with 282 RBI for the Los Angeles Angels—he established himself as one of baseball's most dangerous power hitters last season. That was in stark contrast to his stints with the Arizona Diamondbacks and Seattle Mariners in ...




MLB Rumors: Latest Buzz on Free Agency and J.D. Martinez Trade

With the holiday season fast approaching, most major business around Major League Baseball is nearing its conclusion. Aroldis Chapman, Kenley Jansen and Yoenis Cespedes have all found huge contracts, as have Justin Turner, Mark Melancon and Dexter Fowler. Other lesser free agents, like Neil Walker and Jeremy Hellickson, accepted huge one-year qualifying offers to stick around in their current digs. The stragglers remaining on the market consist of two big-time sluggers being tepidly pursued due to their qualifying offers (Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista) and another who packs a lot of pop to go with bouts of inconsistency (Mark Trumbo). As such, some teams have turned to stoking the trade hot stove to land an impact player. Others remain hopeful on the free-agent market that the likes of Encarnacion or Bautista will lower their prices, or perhaps another bargain will emerge on a short-term contract. Here's an updated look at one of the ...




2017 MLB Free Agents: Rumors and Predictions for Top Available Players

The timing couldn't be much worse for an aging slugger in MLB free agency. Mike Napoli (35) and Mark Trumbo (30) are both coming off productive seasons, but they've yet to find new homes. Although Jose Bautista (36) had an underwhelming campaign, he still boasts an impressive track record. Despite that, he hasn't signed with a team, either. The wait may be worth it. Justin Upton didn't agree to terms with the Detroit Tigers until January last offseason yet still commanded nearly $133 million over six years, per Spotrac. Napoli's, Trumbo's and Bautista's signings may not be imminent, but the rumors below illustrate that their failures to get new deals aren't the result of a lack of interest.                   Mike Napoli Napoli registered career highs in home runs (34) and RBI (101) in 2016, but that hasn't helped him in free agency, given that he remains without a team. On ...

Mark Trumbo: Latest News, Rumors and Speculation on Free-Agent OF

Free-agent slugger Mark Trumbo is coming off a career season, which will only drive up his value on the market this winter.   Continue for updates. Trumbo Getting Plenty of Interest Monday, Nov. 14 Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reported Monday that the market for Trumbo "is bustling," which will increase the chances of him declining the qualifying offer from his former team, the Baltimore Orioles.  The Orioles extended a $17.2 million offer for 2017 to Trumbo on Nov. 7, per Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun.  The 30-year-old signed with Baltimore via free agency last winter and exceeded his one-year, $9.15 million deal (h/t Spotrac) by leaps and bounds in 2016.  He led the majors with a career-high 47 home runs along with 108 RBI as the big bopper of an Orioles lineup that hit an MLB-best 253 home runs.

Reborn Slugger Mark Trumbo Is Front and Center in Orioles’ Winning Formula

The AL East-leading Baltimore Orioles have a formula for winning games, and they're sticking to it. This is thanks in no small part to Mark Trumbo, who just won't stop dropping Trumbombs. Trumbo entered Monday's contest against the Kansas City Royals with 18 home runs, tied with Todd Frazier for the MLB lead. The blast that he cranked leading off the bottom of the seventh inning leapfrogged him ahead of Frazier and, oh yeah, tied a game the Orioles went on to win 4-1. All rise for loud noises and the sight of a ball landing many feet from home plate: That dinger was one of Trumbo's two hits, upping his average to .295 and his OPS to .953. It also put him just three shy of matching the 22 homers he hit in 142 games with the Arizona Diamondbacks and Seattle Mariners last year. And if he stays on this pace, ESPN.com calculates ...
