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.

EDGE Analysis

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 in the lineup Sunday against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Trumbo has sat out the last two games with a back issue, but will return to action and start in right field Sunday. He's struggled at the plate recently, as he's gone just 7-for-43 (.163) over the last 14 games, bringing his batting average down to .248 for the year.

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.

Trumbo is not in the lineup Friday against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Turbo hasn't gotten a day off since August 7, so he'll retreat to the bench to get some rest prior to the last couple weeks of the season. Michael Bourn will take over for him in right field for the night.

Trumbo went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday's 8-0 victory over the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

The slugging outfielder capped off a five-run second with a 389-foot solo shot to center, his majors-leading 41st round-tripper. The 30-year-old endured his worst month of the season by far in August, but his power stroke hasn't left him by any stretch. He's now blasted seven bombs over his last 15 contests and is just three RBI from the second 100-RBI season of his career.

Trumbo went 1-for-4 with a two-run shot, his MLB-leading 40th home run of the season, in Sunday's win over the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

The blasts have been coming in bunches for Trumbo lately, as he's hit homers in back-to-back games four times in August en route to 10 total home runs on the month along with 21 RBI. He's hitting just .197 (17-for-87) during August though, so it's been feast or famine for Trumbo at the plate.

Trumbo went 1-for-2 with a home run and two walks in Saturday's loss to the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old's league-leading 39th home run was an opposite field shot that landed just a few rows into the stands. Outside of the home runs, Trumbo has really struggled in the second half of this season, hitting just .178 since the all-star break. While a higher average would make Trumbo even more valuable, he has been very close to his career rate (.251) overall this year.
