Mark Trumbo Is A Viking With A Broadsword

This is Mark Trumbo’s walkoff bomb off of Phil Coke yesterday.


The pitch: An 84 mph, cockshot of a 3-1 changeup (the fourth of the AB) from a guy who looks like this.

The swing: Gorgeous. He stays back perfectly on Coke’s cambio and clobbers it. Excellent load, balance and torque. And that extension … whoa, that extension. Just beautiful.

 The velocity off the bat: 106.8 mph

The elevation angle: 32.7º

The distance: 425 feet

The verdict: That ball is absolutely crushed, and seeing as Mr. Trumbo is a “Friend of the PRODcast”, we’d like to think that we had something to do with this. That perhaps our offseason conversations somehow loaded him with karma a la Jim Rome and his Jungle guests. But that’s not the case at all. It has everything to do with Mark being a smart, patient and freakishly strong hitter whose timing is totally dialed in right now.
