The Baltimore Orioles have re-signed slugger Mark Trumbo to a three-year deal. He’ll make $37.5 million over that time.
This was not the contract that Trumbo was hoping for, as he was hoping to get more money. Yet, on the open-market, he garnered very little interest.
In Dec., he was reportedly seeking to sign with a team for an $80 million deal. The 31-year-old Trumbo had a .256 batting average with 47 home runs and a 108 games in a 159 games.
The 47-home runs and the 108 RBI’s were career-highs for him. His previous home run and RBI career-high came during the 2013 season, while with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, where he had 34 home runs and 100 RBI’s.
Last season was Trumbo’s first with the Orioles. He was acquired by the team in a trade with the Seattle Mariners on as Trumbo and C.J. Riefenhauser went to the O’s for Steve Clevenger.
He split the 2015 season with the Mariners and the Arizona Diamondbacks. He also played for the Angels, where he spent his first four seasons in the league.
In the American League, he has a .253 batting average with 155 home runs and 433 RBI’s in 715 games. In his two-year stint in the National League, he has a .243 batting average with 23 home runs and 84 RBI’s in 134 games.
