Mark Trumbo was traded away from Seattle last December for basically nothing. He’s making them regret that this year.
Trumbo went 3-for-6 with a double, two solo home runs and three runs scored in yesterday’s win over the Dodgers. He’s now hitting .285/.334/.570 with a major league leading 26 homers and 64 runs driven in. That’s a 50-home run pace. Trumbo has hit 30+ homers twice, but that was three and four years ago. He hit 14 homers in 2014 and 22 last season.
Yesterday it was announced that Trumbo would take part in the Home Run Derby. It’s well-deserved. Not bad for a guy that only cost the Orioles Steve Clevenger.
