Although Trumbo has spent the majority of the season hitting fourth in the Angels lineup, he was recently dropped to sixth in the order and went through a stretch where he had just four hits in 26 at-bats.
However, Trumbo went 2-for-4 on both Monday and Tuesday, marking the first time he has registered back-to-back multihit games since May 22-23.
Aside from hitting his 22nd home run of the season -- an opposite-field shot in the fourth inning of Tuesday's loss to the Twins -- Trumbo has presented a number of signs that gave Scioscia reason to make the move.
"That, and the fact that he shortened his swing and hit a line drive to left-center," Scioscia said. "There are a couple of things we are seeing that are good."
