Diamondbacks | Mark Trumbo to DL

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 09:12:15 -0700

The Arizona Diamondbacks officially placed OF Mark Trumbo (foot) on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, April 24, and recalled OF Roger Kieschnick from Triple-A Reno in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Kieschnick will provide the Snakes with outfield insurance. He can be ignored in most formats. Be prepared for a long absence for Trumbo.

Diamondbacks | Mark Trumbo has plantar fasciitis

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 08:29:42 -0700

In addition to the stress fracture in his left foot, Arizona Diamondbacks OF Mark Trumbo's (foot) MRI exam showed plantar fasciitis that he had been dealing with since spring training. Trumbo thinks he developed the stress fracture while overcompensating due to the plantar fasciitis. "The plantar (fasciitis) at times has been pretty bad but manageable," Trumbo said. "That's what you have to do. You've got to earn a living and play. This was to the point where I severely had to compensate running-wise to the point where I probably wouldn't be much of an asset on either side." Trumbo need 5 1/2 months to heal from a stress fracture in his right foot at the end of the 2011 season, but he doesn't think this is as bad.

Fantasy Tip: The combination of a stress fracture and plantar fasciitis does not bode well for Trumbo. Just look at how foot injuries crippled slugger Albert Pujols last season. Expect Trumbo to be out for a good chunk of time, and when he does return, it could affect him for the rest of the season.

Diamondbacks | Mark Trumbo update

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 15:11:46 -0700

Updating a previous report, Arizona Diamondbacks OF Mark Trumbo (foot) has a stress fracture in the third metatarsal of his left foot. There is no timetable for his return.

Fantasy Tip: Trumbo is expected to land on the DL for a lengthy period of time if his second opinion confirms the diagnosis. Foot and lower body injuries can limit a player's torque and pop, especially a hitter such as Trumbo. You'll have to bite the bullet and reserve him for now.

Diamondbacks | Mark Trumbo has stress fracture

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 14:56:18 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Mark Trumbo (foot) is dealing with a stress fracture in his left foot after undergoing an MRI exam. He will receive a second opinion.

Fantasy Tip: If the initial diagnosis is confirmed, Trumbo will be out for an extended period of time. It'll be a big blow, since hed a nice start for his new squad with seven homers, despite a .210 batting average. Cody Ross and Tony Campana will benefit with more playing time, specifically Ross. Keep in mind, however, that Ross is coming off a serious hip injury and is much better against lefties. Bid accordingly in deep mixed leagues.

Diamondbacks | Cody Ross activated

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 15:15:20 -0700

The Arizona Diamondbacks activated OF Cody Ross (hip) from the 15-day disabled list Friday, April 18, and designated RP Ryan Rowland-Smith for assignment in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Maybe this is the spark that the D-Backs need in order to turn around their atrocious start. Ross is likely to be eased back in, but the loser here is A.J. Pollock. Ross can provide some decent power numbers for deep mixed managers, but at this stage of his career, he's more of a platoon player.

Diamondbacks | Not calling up Archie Bradley yet

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 06:46:21 -0700

The Arizona Diamondbacks will not call up SP Archie Bradley yet despite their slow start. General manager Kevin Towers said the team is concerned about his struggles in his final two spring starts. They also don't want him to have the pressure of saving a rotation with a 4-12 record and a majors-worst 7.16 ERA. Bradley's agent has gone to bat for him. "I think it's very apparent what is going on in Arizona," Bradley's agent, Jay Franklin said. "Archie Bradley has proven to the Diamondbacks organization that he has deserved that opportunity by keeping his mouth shut and letting his numbers speak for his chance to pitch in the major leagues."

Diamondbacks | Trevor Cahill moved to 'pen

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 15:34:41 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Trevor Cahill has been moved to the bullpen, and SP Michael Bolsinger will take his spot and make the start Saturday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: Cahill can be cut in mixed leagues until he proves he's worth of returning to the starting rotation. Consider Bolsinger if you're desperate for pitching in an NL-only league in the short term.
