The Mariners turned a bizarre 3-6-2 triple play

On Sunday, the Seattle Mariners turned a triple play that will go down as one of the most bizarre I’ve ever seen. Ryan Goins grounded to Mark Trumbo at first base. Trumbo stepped on the bag for the first out, and threw to shortstop Brad Miller. Kevin Pillar got in a rundown, and Miller eventually ignored Pillar and fired home to catcher Mike Zunino. Zunino then ran Ezequiel...

Seattle Mariners trade rumors: No major trades edition

In early June, the Seattle Mariners decided to try to “jump the market” and make a move with the Arizona Diamondbacks and acquire Mark Trumbo and Vidal Nuno. This was supposed to be a low-risk, high-reward move, as the Mariners supposedly didn’t give up too much for someone with legit power in Trumbo, and a lefty spot starter/long reliever in Nuno. Outside of the two prospects...

Mariners' Trumbo trying to simplify in order to break out of slump

Seattle Mariners slugger Mark Trumbo is slumping at the plate. It's hardly a new experience for Trumbo, whose all-or-nothing offensive approach has predicated struggles as a member of the Los Angeles Angels, Arizona Diamondabcks and now the M's. As he told Bob Dutton of the News Tribune, he isn't especially enjoying himself at the moment, but he has an idea of how he can shake off...

Slumping Seattle Mariners Hope Mark Trumbo Can Provide Powerful Jolt

Expectations were high for the Seattle Mariners, and yet they look up at far too many teams in the AL West for their liking. Seattle is fourth, only three games better than last-place Oakland entering Thursday’s play. And they’re on a season-high five-game losing streak after mustering just one run in Wednesday’s loss against New York. In need of a boost, they traded for Arizona...

Mariners trade for Mark Trumbo, finally

Usually, around this time of year, there still isn’t really much of an active trade market. Not only are teams wrapping up the process of figuring out what they already have — front offices everywhere are dedicated to the draft.

Diamondbacks have an attractive trade chip in Mark Trumbo

As we enter the middle portion of the season, teams begin to identify whether or not they are serious postseason contenders. The teams that consider themselves out of the race for a playoff spot will begin to examine their roster and see if they can afford to trade expendable players for younger talent that can contribute to future success.

Arizona Diamondbacks: time to part with Parra

The Arizona Diamondbacks have a lot of problems. They make disastrous trades involving elite players who aren’t “gritty” enough. They discourage Brandon McCarthy from throwing his cutter and trade him. McCarthy dominates in his first three starts with his new team using his cutter liberally. But not all of the Diamondback’s problems are bad ones. They have a logjam in the...

WATCH: Mark Trumbo misjudges ball, scales wall for no reason

When the Diamondbacks acquired Mark Trumbo and made the decision to start him in left field on a daily basis, the Internet was quite amused. Thankfully, we didn’t need to wait very long for his first lowlight of the year in the outfield during this morning’s Diamondbacks-Dodgers game in Australia. Trumbo also nearly allowed Clayton Kershaw (you know, Clayton Kershaw, the pitcher...
