Mark Trumbo (1B,LF)
Mark Trumbo went 1-3 with an RBI double and a run scored yesterday vs. the Angels. He hit third in the order with Goldschmidt getting the day off.
Fantasy Impact: Trumbo continues to have a solid spring hitting .385 with 2 HR, 11 RBI in 39 ABs. He also carries a .429 OBP. Fantasy owners were in a hurry to draft Trumbo last season due to his HR power but have been weary of him in 2015. Trumbo still carries the same potential as Chris Carter of the Astros but is going much later in drafts. He also has good position eligibility at 1B/OF/CI. If you're in need of power don't be shy and take Trumbo.
Trumbo has four hits in his first nine at-bats of the spring, going yard twice and adding two doubles in three games.
Fantasy Impact: The 29-year-old slugger looks to be fully recovered from his foot injury and is off to an explosive start this spring. Trumbo's power is an excellent fantasy fit for the Dbacks' hitter-friendly Chase Field, barring any major trips to the disabled list.

Fantasy Impact: At the time of being sidelined with a stress fracture in his foot, Trumbo was tied for the NL lead in home runs and ranked second in RBIs. He'll be slotted in the middle of Arizona's lineup and will be relied on for his power stats in fantasy.
The Diamondbacks tendered a contract to outfielder Mark Trumbo. All six arbitration-eligible players were offered a contract and the two sides will exchange proposed salary figures for the 2015 season on Jan. 16 and, if necessary, arbitration hearings are scheduled to take place from Feb. 1-21.

Fantasy Impact: The tendered contract may keep the outfielder in Arizona for now, but trade rumors could lead to his departure after only one year as a Diamondback. A stress fracture in his left foot had him sidelined for nearly three months, but if he does in fact stay in Arizona and the hitter-friendly Chase Field, more Trum-bombs should be on the way. Be sure to monitor his status as trade bait.
