Orioles designated hitter Mark Trumbo will go out on rehab assignment on Monday with Double-A Bowie. Trumbo, who has been brought along cautiously as he recovers from a right quad strain, played one game for Bowie on April 10 before things got shut down as the area wasn’t fully healed.
There’s no timetable for Trumbo’s return, but Sunday’s news was a step in the right direction in getting Trumbo — who sustained the injury in Spring Training — to make his season debut.
Outfielder Trey Mancini is still hoping to avoid the disabled list after slamming his right knee into an unpadded portion of the left-field wall in Friday’s game. Mancini, who was unavailable on Saturday, was better on Sunday, and the team is hoping he’ll only be sidelined for a few days.
Closer Zach Britton (right Achilles surgery) threw off of a half mound for the second time this weekend after doing some pitchers’ fielding practice on Saturday. He remains on target to join the club when he’s eligible at the end of May or shortly thereafter.
