Baltimore Orioles Rumors: Mark Trumbo Willing To Accept Three-Year Deal Worth $40-50 Million From Team

Mark Trumbo reportedly rejected a four-year, $52-55 million offer from the Baltimore Orioles in November.

Mark Trumbo told the Baltimore Orioles that he would be willing to accept a three-year deal worth $40-50 million, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports

Trumbo has earned interest from the Colorado Rockies, Texas Rangers, Oakland Athletics, St. Louis Cardinals, and Seattle Mariners throughout the offseason. The first baseman and outfielder was drafted by the Los Angeles Angels in the 18th round of the 2004 MLB Draft and has experienced his fair share of ups and downs. However, 2016 was his best season, slashing .256/.316/.533 with 47 home runs and 108 runs batted in. 

Last season, the 30-year-old led the majors in home runs, but struggled on the defensive end and is tied down to a compensation draft pick. Prior to making the 2016 All-Star Game, Trumbo's only other All-Star Game appearance was in 2012, when he hit .268 with 32 home runs and 95 runs batted in. 

A reunion between Baltimore and Trumbo comes down to how much Trumbo wants to return and how much the Orioles want him back in the Charm City. After acquiring outfielder Seth Smith and resigning designated hitter, third baseman, and first baseman Pedro Alvarez, the Orioles might have already replaced Trumbo's offensive production. 

Trumbo went 1-for-4 during the American League Wild Card loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. His only hit went for a two-run home run off Marcus Stroman.
