|Mark Trumbo plagued by back ailment |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(10:20 am ET) 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.

(9/18/14) Diamondbacks slugging left fielder Mark Trumbo (back) is set to sit Thursday night against Colorado. His four-game hitting streak was halted Wednesday as he left with a back injury.
Trumbo has just nine home runs in 293 at-bats this season, but is on his typical RBI pace with 49.

(8/18/14) Call it a hunch.
Mark Trumbo has always been a streaky player. He hit .314 (11 for 35) with five home runs in his first nine games with the Diamondbacks only to hit .130 (6 for 46) with two in his next 12 before going on the DL with a stress fracture in his left foot. That's just one example, of course. The most extreme came in 2012, when he hit .306 with 22 home runs in the first half only to hit .227 with 10 in the second half.
We can agree on that, right? Streaky.
So while some may view his power outage since coming off the DL -- he has only one home run in 108 at-bats -- as cause for alarm, I view it as Trumbo being Trumbo. And I take solace in this: In his last 16 games, he's batting .351 (20 for 57).
Trumbo has never been a singles hitter. When he's hot, he mashes by anyone's standards. So then, he hasn't really gotten hot yet. But he's clearly seeing the ball well; he's clearly putting a good swing on it. We're just catching the first glimpse of what's to come.
Keep the faith, Trumbo owners.
|Mark Trumbo stays hot, drives in two more |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/15/14) Diamondbacks first baseman Mark Trumbo reached base three times Thursday, in a 5-4 loss to the Marlins.
Trumbo went 2 for 4 with two RBI, driving one run with each of his hits in the first and third innings. He added a walk and a run scored in the extra-innings loss.
Trumbo has struggled when healthy this season, hitting just .229 with eight home runs in 48 games, but has been turning things around recently. He is hitting .341/.426/.477 with 11 RBI in 44 at-bats in the month of August.
|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.
