Fantasy Impact: Trumbo has never been known as a for-average hitter, but he has actually been hitting .301 in the month of September. Unfortunately, it seems to have come at the expense of his power, as he has hit just two home runs in that time. His primary value is in AL-only formats.

Mark Trumbo collected one of Seattle's seven hits during Monday's shutout at the hands of the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact: Trumbo turned things around in a big way in August, but he's off to a slow start in September. His home run on the first of the month was one of only two extra-base hits, and accounted for two of his three September RBI. He's only mustered an OPS of .669 this month.

Mark Trumbo goes 1-for-4

Mark Trumbo collected a hit in four at-bats Wednesday to go with a walk and RBI.

Fantasy Impact: After getting off to an extremely slow start with the M's, Trumbo has turned things around over the last two months. So far in August he's maintained an OPS of .910 over 57 at-bats.

Trumbo went 1-for-4 on Wednesday and knocked his 15th HR of the year in the 7-2 loss against the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact: The Trumbo trade has been disappointing for Seattle. Even with today's blast, the power-first OF/1B/DH has hit .237 in August with three home runs. His positional versatility is countered by his shaky production and inconsistent playing time.

Fantasy Impact: Trumbo's versatility positionally is the basis for his limited value, but his dismal power numbers have cuckolded him. With Jesus Montero hitting well as well, Trumbo's role as a masher of left-handed pitching may be in jeopardy unless he can consistently play outfield. If he can keep up his hot hitting, however, he will continue to see play.

Mark Trumbo went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk, and a run scored against the Angels on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Trumbo has been unable to find any kind of rhythm since being traded to the Mariners, batting a mere .167 with only one homer and two multi-hit efforts in 17 games. Until Trumbo gets going he should ride the pine in all but the deepest of formats where playing time is too big of a factor.

Mark Trumbo went 1-for-4 with a single and three RBI against the Astros on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: One RBI came on the single, with the other two coming on groundouts, as Trumbo was finally a little productive for his new team. Trumbo is batting .188 since going to Seattle with no homers, and only two multi-hit games. He's a deep mixed and AL-Only play until he finds his bat again.

Mark Trumbo went 1-for-5 with a RBI single against the Indians on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Trumbo has went 3-for-25 since being traded to the Mariners, and while Safeco might sap some of his power, it can't be held responsible for his batting average woes. Trumbo's overall average is down to .241, and it might be a good idea to let him ride the fantasy pine until he regains his form, at least in mixed leagues.

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-4 with two singles and two strikeouts against the Rays on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Trumbo had a typical day at the office in his Mariners debut, swinging freely and making contact about half the time. The move to Safeco Field isn't going to help his power numbers, but maybe a fresh start will do good for the slugger's overall productivity. For fantasy owners all that can be done is to watch and wait.

Fantasy Impact: Even though the Mariners signed Nelson Cruz in the winter they still lacked power and depth from the right side. This deal makes the Mariners lineup much deeper.

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-8 with a double, a solo-HR, and three strikeouts against the Brewers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Trumbo's homer tied the game at sixth in the eighth, which is where it would stay until the 17th inning in what was the longest game in Miller Park history. Trumbo was unable to get the winning hit (though he had a few opportunities in extras), but he sure made it an interesting contest.

Mark Trumbo went 3-for-5 with a pair of singles and a double against the Brewers on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Trumbo raised his average to .274, as he continues to provide solid value to fantasy owners. It was his first multi-hit game since May 12th, but he has hit six homers in the month to make up for that. Keep Trumbo active in all fantasy formats.


Category: , Game Recaps

The Diamonbacks were getting shutout until Trumbo's HR. Trumbo now has 7 HR and 21 RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Trumbo still has some of the best power in all of MŁB. He can hit home runs in bunches. Currently sporting a .264 AVG which won't kill you in that department. He has been moved around in the lineup hitting anywhere from 2-5. If you need HR help, I reccomend trying to trade for him.


Category: , Game Recaps

Mark Trumbo went 1-for-4 with a double, a walk, and a run scored against the Marlins on Thursday. He also struckout once in the game.

Fantasy Impact: It hasn't been a pretty month thus far for Trumbo, batting a mere .226, and even four homers in May can't mitigate that hit for fantasy owners. Trumbo should remain active in all fantasy formats, and owners just have to hope he regains his April form when he was raking at a .319 clip.

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and drove in four RBI's as the Diamondbacks rolled to a 14-6 victory.

Fantasy Impact: Trumbo launched a three-run homer off of Stephen Strasburg in the fourth inning and hit another solo shot in the sixth inning to make it his sixth homer of the year along with 19 RBI's.

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-4 in the series opener against the San Diego Padres with a home run and a double.

Fantasy Impact: In his second game batting second in the lineup, Trumbo went yard for his fourth blast of the year. He's rewarding his fantasy owners with this late surge of power after a trip to Coors Field.

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-4 in the first game on Wednesday including a two-run homer and a double.

Fantasy Impact: It was a complete first game for the Dbacks as they scored 13 runs on 18 hits even with Trumbo slotted second in the lineup. Trumbo took full advantage of playing at Coors Field, but still isn't up to par with his projected home run totals. The slugger is still contributing fantasy-wise with 14 RBI’s and a .523 slugging percentage.

Mark Trumbo blasted a two-run homer, tripled and added two singles in a 12-5 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Trumbo had a perfect night at the plate and was a double away from hitting for the cycle. The slugger drove in four RBI’s and scored three times himself. It was Trumbo’s second homer of the season and he’s enjoying a 6-for-8 series against the Rockies.

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and a walk in the series opener against the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: Trumbo also scored and stole a base in the game after going only 1-for-8 in the previous series against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Trumbo’s batting lines are at .281/.303/.453 and Monday’s stolen base was his first of the year. The slugger couldn’t come up with the late hit that would have brought home the game-tying run as the Dbacks lost 5-4.

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-4 in Wednesday’s win over the Texas Rangers with two singles and two RBI’s, bringing his season totals to six RBI’s and a .288 batting average.

Fantasy Impact: Trumbo's hitting streak came to an end Sunday, but he’s gathered two hits in the two-game series against the Rangers. The home stand continues with a series against the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Colorado Rockies. Trumbo could take a day off in the upcoming weekend series, but he’s a bat the Dbacks want in the lineup as often as possible with his explosive power.

Fantasy Impact: This is protocol now, as this is Trumbo's second day off in the short season. The outfielder is slugging .500 with a six-game hit streak in tact.


Mark Trumbo went 1-for-4 Thursday against the San Francisco Giants including a home run against Madison Bumgarner in the second inning. He’s extended his hit streak to six games now.

Fantasy Impact: Finally, Trumbo is on the board in the home run category. Trumbo’s shot to left field was his first ever in AT&T Park and it tied the game in the second inning. Yasmany Tomas has joined the team and it’s caused for Trumbo’s name to be included in trade talks. Monitor the rumor mill to see if Trumbo may be on the move, as he could be trade bait in fantasy leagues as well.

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-4 with two singles and scored on an error in the first inning against San Diego.

Fantasy Impact: Trumbo was subbed out of the game in a defensive move by manager Chip Hale in the bottom of the seventh inning for A.J. Pollock, but was able to contribute at the plate before that. Trumbo has hit safely in every game but one this season, but has yet to go yard this year. He’s the outfielder you want in Arizona, but may make his fantasy owners wait until the first Trum-bomb of 2015.

Mark Trumbo singled twice against the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw, going 2-for-4 on the day and added an RBI in the process.

Fantasy Impact: Trumbo isn’t having a flashy start to the year (other than his two triples), but he looked comfortable batting fourth in the lineup on Saturday. His potential for a high number of homers and RBI’s have gotten off to a slow start, but he’s only been a couple feet away from clearing Chase Field’s walls.

Mark Trumbo has two triples in two games to open up the 2015 season. The righty struck out twice and grounded into a double play in his three other at-bats of the game, but also scored after his triple.

Fantasy Impact: Trumbo shares the league lead with two triples, temporarily that is. Again, it is Trumbo’s power that makes him such a value in fantasy. Trumbo’s shot to right field was hit hard enough to get him all the way to third. Even if his power stroke can’t leave the park, he will still be a big supplier of RBI’s and extra-base hits this season.

Mark Trumbo went 1-for-4 on Monday with an RBI triple that was just a few feet away from being his first homer of the year. In Trumbo’s shortened 2014 season, he only hit one triple.

Fantasy Impact: Trumbo is going to a great source of power this season in hitter-friendly Chase Field. If it wasn't for the high center field wall, Trumbo would be on the board with his first Trum-bomb. The righty had a very efficient spring, going 24-for-57, and is a candidate for a big bounce-back season after only playing in 88 games last year due to a foot fracture.


Category: , Game Recaps

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. (Source: Steve Gilbert)

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.
