|Mark Trumbo registers second multi-HR game of the month |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/27/14) Diamondbacks first baseman Mark Trumbo registered his second multi-home run performance of the month Saturday night against the Cardinals.
Trumbo launched a solo home run in the opening frame off Lance Lynn and then took reliever Seth Maness deep for a three-run home run in the seventh inning to break the game open in Arizona's favor. He went 2 for 3 with a walk, two runs scored and four RBI in a 5-2 victory. He is hitting .237 with 14 homers and 61 RBI over 325 at-bats.

(9/22/14) Diamondbacks first baseman Mark Trumbo homered twice Sunday at Colorado, giving him 11 in 305 at-bats this year. According to the Arizona Republic, he's been looking to improve his home run total by hitting the ball in the air.
"There's no money for me on the ground," Trumbo said. "I need to drive the ball. I need to hit the ball in the air. It's frustrating when you're not doing it, but fortunately today I was able to get a few out there, and that's kind of what I need to do."
According to FanGraphs.com, Trumbo's fly-ball rate is actually a bit higher than it was last season, but fewer of those fly balls are resulting in home runs. The former Angels slugger missed 71 games earlier this season with a stress fracture in his foot.
"Looking at my numbers, if I'm a 30-home run guy, maybe I'm not that far off pace for missing half the year," said Trumbo. "But it feels like this year it's been more frustrating. The balls I've hit hard have been lower for outs. You look around the league, and the guys who are in my same mold probably are getting the ball up in the air. That's what I've got to do, too."

(9/21/14) Diamondbacks first baseman Mark Trumbo went 2 for 4 with two home runs and three RBI in his team's 8-3 loss to the Rockies Sunday.
Trumbo was the only Arizona hitter to get anything done Sunday, knocking a two-run home run in the sixth inning and following up with a solo blast in the ninth. He's started to get rolling near the end of the season, going 11 for 32 with three home runs and 13 RBI in his last eight games. Trumbo has hit .239/.300/.403 with 11 home runs and 53 RBI in 305 at-bats.
|Mark Trumbo, Jake Lamb return to action in Colorado |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/19/14) Two Diamondbacks starters returned to action Friday night in Colorado.
First baseman Mark Trumbo, who has not played since Wednesday because of back issue, is batting fifth. Third baseman Jake Lamb is also back and batting right behind Trumbo at the No. 6 spot. He missed nearly a week of action because of a quad injury.

(9/19/14) Back spasms caused the absence of Diamondbacks outfielder/first baseman Mark Trumbo from the Thursday lineup, but Kirk Gibson does not believe it's serious, per azcentral.com.
"He probably needed an off day anyway," Gibson said.
Trumbo has not played since Wednesday. Injuries have limited him to 293 at-bats this season.
|Coming into 2013, the big question surrounding Mark Trumbo was whether his .227 batting average in the second half last year was a consequence of a nagging back issue or a long overdue regression to the mean. After a year in which his batting average, slugging percentage and OPS all declined -- even with an increase in homers -- safe to say the verdict is in. Trumbo is probably the best representation of the all-or-nothing slugger in the game today (apologies to Pedro Alvarez), and his move to Arizona isn't likely to change that. At a time when only 12-15 major-leaguers are likely to hit 30 homers in a given year, he's done it twice in a row, but thanks to some horrendous plate discipline, his .234 batting average ranked 129th among the 140 qualifying hitters last season, and his .294 on-base percentage ranked 132nd. The home runs are worth enough on their own for you to draft him in the early-to-middle rounds and start him every week, whether at first base or the outfield, but he's most definitely an imperfect player. You'll need to figure out some way to compensate for his batting average in Rotisserie leagues.
