Mark Trumbo aiming to elevate ball


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/22/2014) 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."


Mark Trumbo homers twice vs. Rockies Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) 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
(9/19/2014) 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.

Mark Trumbo plagued by back ailment


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) 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.


Mark Trumbo catching break Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Hitters to sit in Week 23


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/31/2014) If you own Stephen Vogt, Mark Trumbo, Arismendy Alcantara, Nick Castellanos, Elvis Andrus or Khris Davis in Fantasy, you may want to think twice about starting him in Fantasy Week 23 (Sept. 1-7).

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Power surge coming for Mark Trumbo


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/18/2014) 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.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) 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. 


Mark Trumbo collects first home run since injury Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Diamondbacks first baseman Mark Trumbo went 2 for 5 with a home run and four RBI in his team's 14-4 win over the Rockies Saturday.

Trumbo hadn't knocked a home run since coming back from his lengthy stay on the disabled list in mid-July before finally getting on the board Saturday. He has pieced together a six-game hitting streak, however. Trumbo owns a .224/.268/.406 line with eight home runs and 30 RBI in 165 at-bats.

"I think everything [is still troublesome for Trumbo]," Gibson said. "Just the sheer volume of what he does. Personally, I haven't seen him run, I don't think he's been in the outfield like running around and catching balls. I don't think he's there yet."
