Orioles' Trumbo leaves game with bruise after fouling ball off calf; X-ray is negative

MILWAUKEE — Orioles outfielder Mark Trumbo left Tuesday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers with a bruised left calf after fouling a ball off himself in the top of the fifth inning.

Trumbo went on to single later in the at-bat, then took his place in right field for the bottom half of the inning.


But when the Orioles made a series of changes to bring in pitcher Tyler Wilson for the sixth inning, manager Buck Showalter lifted Trumbo for Joey Rickard in right field.

"Pretty stiff," Trumbo said. "Wasn't running too well. We'll see how it responds tomorrow."


Trumbo had an X-ray, which he said was "fine."

Showalter said it got as much bone as muscle, which limited Trumbo as the game progressed.

"It got a negative on this X-ray," Showalter said. "We'll see how he feels tomorrow. It got to the point where he couldn't really function."

Trumbo had reached base in both of his plate appearances — the first on a fielder's choice when an in-between fly ball hit off the glove of second baseman Jonathan Villar in right field.

He entered the game batting .253 with 12 home runs and 40 RBIs in 82 games. No other player has started every game for the Orioles this season.
