Trumbo receives AL Silver Slugger honor
Orioles outfielder Mark Trumbo won his second postseason award in as many days Thursday, receiving his first career Silver Slugger award. Trumbo, who led the majors with 47 home runs this past season, earned the Players Choice Award for American League Comeback Player of the Year on Wednesday. In his first — and possibly only — season with the Orioles, Trumbo, 30, now a free agent, set career highs in homers, RBIs (108), slugging percentage (.533), runs (94), hits (157) and total bases (327). He is the first Oriole to win an American League Silver Slugger award since 2013, when Chris Davis, J.J. Hardy and Adam Jones received the honor. WORLDBASEBALLCLASSIC: Orioles outfielder Hyun Soo Kim was announced as one of three major leaguers on South Korea’s provisional roster for the tournament that runs from March 9-22 during spring training.
