Arizona Diamondbacks OF Mark Trumbo (foot) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, July 11, and OF Roger Kieschnick was optioned to Triple-A Reno in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: The Snakes may choose to ease Trumbo back right before the All-Star break, but if he's in Arizona's starting lineup, he should be in yours, too. His return likely means less playing time for Cody Ross, Ender Inciarte and maybe even Gerardo Parra in the long term.

Arizona Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock (hand) sustained a fracture in his right hand Saturday, May 31, when he was hit by a pitch. He'll be placed on the disabled list Sunday, June 1, and should miss significant time. The club is still determining whether surgery will be necessary.
Fantasy Tip: It's a big blow to a bat who was raking, as well as his owners. This is an unfortunate way to clear up playing time for Mark Trumbo's (foot) imminent return. Cody Ross and Gerardo Parra should be nearly locked into the lineup, but someone like Alfredo Marte could chip in, as well, for NL-only purposes.
