The Orioles will likely make the qualifying offer to Mark Trumbo in an effort to gain a compensatory draft pick if he departs. But after a career year where he led the majors with 47 homers, there's little doubt that Trumbo will test the free-agent market. Trumbo has been consistent in saying how much he enjoyed his brief time in Baltimore, where he meshed well in the clubhouse and was able to play in the postseason for the first time in his major league career. But two years ago, after Nelson Cruz led the majors in homers during his one-year stint with the Orioles before hitting free agency, he signed a four-year, $57 million deal with the Seattle Mariners. Trumbo will hit free agency four years younger than Cruz was, so a comparable deal — if not a larger one — isn't out of the question. In the offseason, everyone's looking for a slugger.
