DIAMONDBACKS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Diamondbacks Place Mark Trumbo On DL

The Arizona Diamondbacks have placed OF slugger Mark Trumbo on the disabled list with a stress fracture in his foot. Trumbo, who was acquired in the offseason as part of a 3 team deal, has 7 home runs and 19 RBI for the 6-18 DBacks. He may only be hitting .210, but you did not draft a career .248 hitter for BA, you want the TrumBOMBS and he has provided. He will be missed in fantasy...

Has D-Backs owner put GM Kevin Towers on notice?

For the most part, it’s still too early in the 2014 MLB season to make any grand declarations. But after three weeks, we can safely say that the Diamondbacks have been the biggest disappointment in baseball. After Monday’s 5-1 loss to the Cubs, the D-Backs are now 5-17.
