Trumbo is on a tear right now.
2012 Stats: .326 BA, 28 Rs, 14 HRs, 39 RBI, 1.011 OPS
After all the preseason talks of being traded, Mark Trumbo has certainly delivered so far.
Trumbo had an impressive rookie season and he's off to an incredible start this year, putting up MVP-type numbers. I don't think that will continue, though.
First off, Trumbo's BABIP is sitting at .366. He was at .274 last year, so expect his current BABIP to come down. Even if he improves on that number, his batting average is still going to fall under .300.
Secondly, his HR/FB rate is nearly 26 percent. This number is very inflated compared to last season, when he was at 17.9 percent. Again, Trumbo will most likely have a higher HR/FB rate this season, but 26 percent is way too high.
Lastly, Trumbo's strikeout rate is actually higher this season than last. His strikeout percentage is 22.1 percent.
Trumbo has definitely helped your squad, but it's time to cash in on him. The power numbers will most likely continue, but he'll take a dip in batting average. You can get a lot for Trumbo right now.
