BALTIMORE (AP) - Orioles designated hitter Mark Trumbo will undergo surgery on his bothersome right knee, ending an injury-marred season that started late and concluded early.

Trumbo went on the 10-day disabled list Aug. 20 with right knee inflammation. After visiting several specialists, including one in California on Wednesday, he opted for surgery.

“He has seen everyone he needs to see and has not received any differing information,” manager Buck Showalter said.

Trumbo will decide where and when to have the procedure within the next few days.

The 32-year-old Trumbo started the season on the DL with a right quad strain and did not make his debut until May 1.



He played in 90 games, batting .261 with 17 home runs and 44 RBIs.

Trumbo hit a major-league leading 47 homers for Baltimore in 2016 before signing a three-year, $37.5 million deal with the Orioles.
