|Mark Trumbo could hit lower in the order |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(3/2/14) Diamondbacks outfielder Mark Trumbo could hit lower in the order, according to azcentral.com.
Trumbo was acquired during the offseason, and was expected to be a middle of the order hitter. While Trumbo may wind up hitting behind Paul Goldschmidt, manager Kirk Gibson said he may separate the two players in the lineup. "If you spread those guys out, maybe it gives you an opportunity to score multiple runs on different occasions in different spots throughout the lineup," Gibson said.
Trumbo hit .234/.294/.453 in 620 at-bats last year.

|Mark Trumbo doesn't want to be 'one-dimensional player' |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/17/14) Diamondbacks slugger Mark Trumbo said Sunday he's looking to be more than just an offensive presence for his new team.
"I understand that's why they brought me over, to hit a few home runs, drive in some runs," Trumbo said, per The Associated Press. "I look forward to the opportunity to improve my all-around game as well. The last thing you really want to be is a one-dimensional player. I'm going to have to prove a lot of people wrong, but it's my intention to go out there and play hard and do that."
Trumbo played mostly first base and DH for the Angels, but since Paul Goldschmidt mans first base for Arizona, Trumbo is making the move to left field. Trumbo understands he has to prove the critics wrong who doubt he can play the position.
"If your were to knock me at first base, I think I might come back at you a little bit because statistically it would show that I was pretty good over there," he said. "But obviously I don't have a big track record in left so it's going to be my job to go out there and prove to people that I can be a serviceable left fielder and contribute on that front too."
|Diamondbacks reach agreement with Mark Trumbo |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(2/6/14) The Diamondbacks have avoided arbitration with first baseman Mark Trumbo. The two sides have settled at $4.8 million. The team and Trumbo were $2.45 million apart when they exchanged salary figures.
The agreed-upon salary will be a bargain if Trumbo continues to produce at his accustomed rate. He has averaged 32 home runs and 94 RBI in the last three seasons.
|Diamondbacks, Mark Trumbo exchange arbitration figures |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(1/17/14) The Diamondbacks and outfielder Mark Trumbo exchanged salary figures Friday, with Trumbo seeking $5.85 million and the team offering $3.4 million, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports.
Acquired in a three-team trade this offseason, Trumbo is eligible for arbitration for the first time. He hit .234/.294/.453 with 34 home runs and 100 RBI in 620 at-bats with the Angels last 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.
