Mark Trumbo is having a hard time finding ABs for the Los Angeles Angels

26-year old righty swinging Mark Trumbo broke out for the Angels in 2011. He played in 149 games for the Angels last year and he was 137 of 539 (.254 avg, .768 OPS) with 65 runs scored, 29 homers, 87 RBIs and 9 stolen bases. He is a natural 1B, but he can’t play there with Albert Pujols locked in. So he tried to learn 3B in spring training, but that has not gone too well as he has made 3 errors in his first four games there. With Kendry Morales back at DH, it’s been really hard for manager Mike Scioscia to find ABs for him. That’s a shame because he’s raking at the plate so far this year. He has played in 10 games for he Angels so far this year and he is 10 for 30 (.333 avg, .978 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 2 homers, 6 RBIs and 1 stolen base. I think the Scioscia will find a way to get Trumbo ABs if he keeps hitting like he is right now.
