Question of the Day, 5/29 …
With Torii Hunter back, where does Mark Trumbo play? — @bshah79
Time will tell, but I believe he’s essentially the everyday left fielder now (though he played first base when Albert Pujols was given a DH day on Tuesday). Fact is, Peter Bourjos wasn’t even getting regular playing time when both Hunter and Vernon Wells was out — Kole Calhoun was taking away some of his at-bats, if you’ll remember — and it’s clear that Mike Scioscia isn’t very comfortable with Trumbo at third. I think Wells’ DL stint gives Scioscia an avenue to plug Trumbo in as the left fielder at an almost everyday basis — with Mike Trout obviously in center — and not have to put him at the hot corner just to get his bat in the lineup. That’s what I see taking place moving forward.
