Mark Trumbo had a fantastic 2016 campaign hitting .256/.316/.533 with 47 home runs and 108 RBI in 159 games with the Baltimore Orioles. The Rangers have reportedly checked-in with Trumbo, but it seems like it could be a whole lot more than that. The Orioles have said they dropped out of the Trumbo sweepstakes meaning the Rangers could be the new front-runners.
After a career year in 2016 everyone can expect Trumbo’s value to go sky-high. When the off-season started Trumbo was reportedly asking for around an $80 million dollar deal. At this point in the off-season Trumbo will likely have to shrink those demands to find a deal.
