I’m wondering if it’s time to get concerned about DH , who hasn’t homered in 20 spring games. The spring isn’t a time Trumbo usually struggles. In his previous two spring trainings, he’s hit .310 with 12 homers, 13 doubles and 36 RBI in 48 games. This spring, he’s battingiker Lautaro Martinez.The Argentina international is a wanted manMerseyside Police will not take action after investigating an allegation of racist behaviour by a fan at Everton’s Premier League match against Tottenham.The force said it did not believetheir showdown with Premier League champions Manchester City.Many critics have suggested the club have no chance against Pep Guardiola’s side and should focus on the next game.

You can’t really blame the move to DH as a potential cause of Trumbo’s struggles. He hit .310 with a .571 slugging percentage and .948 OPS in 84 at-bats as a DH last season, so strictly focusing on hitting hasn’t been a problem in the past.

It’s just too premature to say a bad spring is going to translate into a bad season for Trumbo. Our only history with Trumbo is that good springs have translated into good seasons for the 27-year-old slugger.

I’m not about to overlook him on Draft Day because he hasn’t homered this spring. He’s still going to get plenty of lineup protection hitting behind the likes of Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton, so my concerns are still minimal when it comes to Trumbo.
