The 2016 home run champion, Trumbo's power should offset his poor fielding and plate approach to land him a big contract.

November 07, 2016

Position: OF/DH | Age: 31
Current Team: Orioles | Best Fit: Blue Jays
2016 Stats: .256/.316/.533 (.849 OPS), 47 HR, 108 RBIs, 2 SB

There are many things that Trumbo does not do well: play defense, run, draw walks, hit for average, hit lefties (strangely, as he bats righthanded). But he did blast four more bombs than anyone else in 2016, and power gets paid. The Blue Jays could be short 88 homers from last season if their three free-agent sluggers depart. They will be interested.
