Trumbo rejected the Orioles one-year, $17.2 million qualifying offer Monday, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Given the market for his services, it isn't surprising that the 30-year-old slugger turned down Baltimore's proposition. Trumbo will likely command a pretty penny after bashing 47 home runs last season, although some teams may be hesitant to sign him given the fact that he'll also cost a draft pick.

Trumbo received a qualifying offer from the Orioles on Monday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is a no-brainer for Baltimore given Trumbo's monster 47-home run season. That being said, odds are the 30-year-old will decline the offer and try to get a bigger deal in free agency, but this move could deter some suitors now that they will have to sacrifice a draft pick to sign him.

Trumbo went 4-for-4 with a double and run in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran slugger's bat has caught fire just in time for the playoff run, with Saturday's effort representing his first four-hit day since Opening Day. Trumbo has also hit safely in five straight and seven of nine, with five multihit efforts over the latter span. His league-leading 47 homers have the Orioles on the verge of a wild-card spot, and his 108 RBI are a career high as well.

Trumbo went 2-for-3 and hit a home run for the second straight day in a 6-1 victory over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

That give Trumbo 45 homers this season and expands his lead in the category to three over Edwin Encarnacion. Trumbo is 4-for-8 with two homers and a double in the first two games of the weekend series versus Arizona. In addition to 45 bombs, Trumbo is hitting .250 with 104 RBI and 89 runs in 585 at-bats.

Trumbo went 2-for-5 with a double, game-winning solo homer in the 12th inning, and a walk in Friday's 3-2 victory over the D-backs.

EDGE Analysis

Trumbo picked a fine time for his 44th blast of the season, launching a 404-foot shot to left off Matt Koch to send the Orioles home with a much-needed victory. Despite a tough second half of the season in which he's slashed .187/.263/.430, Trumbo has career highs in homers (44) and RBI (103), and has been an essential cog in a potent Orioles offense throughout the campaign.

Trumbo (back) is not in the lineup Saturday, but manager Buck Showalter said he may be an option off the bench, Eddie Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Trumbo continues to deal with the back spasms that kept him out of action Friday, but Showalter indicated that the slugger has already made tangible progress. At this point, the expectation is that Trumbo could potentially return to the starting lineup as early as Sunday.

Trumbo (back) remains out of the lineup Saturday against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

The slugger continues to contend with back spasms, so he'll be sidelined for the second time in as many days. With Steve Pearce (elbow) also unable to start, Michael Bourn will get another nod in right field.

Trumbo is sitting out of Friday's contest due to back spasms, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Trumbo apparently gets bouts of back spasms every now and then, so there's a decent chance that this won't keep him out of the lineup for very long. That being said, back injuries can be a bit finicky at times, so the slugger's status for the rest of the weekend's games is worth monitoring. Consider him day-to-day for the time being.
