Baltimore Orioles slugger Mark Trumbo will start the season on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right quad.
Manager Buck Showalter says Trumbo will miss a minimum of three to four weeks. The announcement came Thursday, two weeks before opening day.
Trumbo missed a week with the quad injury and returned to action Wednesday against the New York Yankees. He felt discomfort after the game and had an MRI on Thursday.
Trumbo, who led the major leagues in home runs with 47 in 2016, hit 23 homers last year with 65 RBIs. He batted .234 as an outfielder and designated hitter.
This spring, the 32-year-old has hit just .130 with a home run and two RBIs.
