Report: Orioles have pulled offer to Mark Trumbo

Mark Trumbo

The Baltimore Orioles’ negotiations with free agent Mark Trumbo have apparently stalled.

Trumbo, who led the league with 47 home runs last season, is a free agent, and Baltimore would like to bring him back. But contract talks between both sides have stalled, according to MASN’s Roch Kubatko.

The Orioles reportedly have offered Trumbo a four-year deal for around $52 million. However, the slugger is said to be seeking around $80 million. At last check the words was Baltimore had the best offer on the table for Trumbo.

Even though the Orioles have reportedly pulled their offer to Trumbo, Kubatko notes that the same thing happened last year with Chris Davis, and Baltimore still ultimately retained the first baseman.

If Baltimore had the best offer out to Trumbo, then the outfielder may have to get used to the idea that he’s not going to receive the contract he was dreaming about in free agency.
