Trumbo is out of the lineup Wednesday night against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Trumbo's playing time has drastically declined recently. His absence from Wednesday's lineup marks the sixth time over the last 11 games that he's been held out of the starting lineup. In that time he's gone just 1-for-17 (.059) and struck out eight times. However, Baltimore's decision to not start Trumbo on Wednesday isn't entirely performance based, as they're playing in a National League ballpark and can't use a designated hitter.

Trumbo is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Pirates, Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

As the O's playoff hopes have dwindled in recent weeks, so has Trumbo's playing time -- this is his fifth absence in 10 games -- with the team turning its focus to 2018. Trumbo has battled a variety of injuries and he's taken a massive step back in terms of performance in his age-31 season, but he figures to continue on as the team's primary DH for the foreseeable future after signing a three-year deal in January.

Trumbo is not in the lineup Saturday against the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

Trumbo went 3-for-6 with a solo home run and a walk-off single in Sunday's 12-inning victory over Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

A year removed from leading MLB with 47 bombs, Trumbo's latest homer was just his 21st of the campaign. Entering this year, not many expected the slugger to repeat 2016's career season, but it's safe to say the masses weren't anticipating this either. Before breaking through Sunday, Trumbo was sporting a career-low slugging percentage (.408) and OPS (.707).

Trumbo is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Trumbo is just 1-for-20 in his career against Seattle's starter, Erasmo Ramirez, so he'll get the day off after starting 18 straight games since returning from the disabled list. Seth Smith will slide over to DH in his absence, leaving a spot for Craig Gentry to start in right field. Trumbo, who is slashing .239/.298/.410 with 20 homers this season, should be available off the bench, and will likely be back in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale.

Trumbo went 2-for-5 with a solo homer, a walk and two runs Friday against the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Trumbo hit his 20th blast of the season off Rick Porcello to give the Orioles a three-run lead in the second inning of a home win. Unless he goes on a hot streak, he's been a poor performer for fantasy owners, as he's slashing .237/.297/.412, and he's difficult to trust in lineups.
