Mark Trumbo is Enjoying His New Home Park

Perhaps due to schedule shenanigans, Arizona’s Chase Field has only been home to two of Mark Trumbo home runs this season. That’s fine. The park has already helped Trumbo become a better hitter. When you’re trying to anticipate how a player will do with a move, it’s fair to look at the entirety of the division. […]

Trumbo, Diamondbacks beat Rockies to avert sweep

Mark Trumbo is a cerebral slugger, but he says he cannot explain it. He cannot predict when it's about to happen or explain it once it does, but he has found throughout his career that these kind of streaks happen every now and again. Whatever the reason, the Diamondbacks are glad it's happening. On Sunday, Trumbo slammed his fifth home run in nine games this season in helping...

Charlie Blackmon’s six hit day was helped by Mark Trumbo

In the latest edition of The Misadventures of Mark Trumbo, Mark helps Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon collect his fourth hit of the day after this embarrassing sliding attempt on a sinking liner.

Right field no longer closed for Trumbo

PHOENIX -- Mark Trumbo believes he is going to enjoy playing in Chase Field, and his hitting pattern in the Diamondbacks' home opener Monday spoke to the reason.

WATCH: Mark Trumbo misjudges ball, scales wall for no reason

When the Diamondbacks acquired Mark Trumbo and made the decision to start him in left field on a daily basis, the Internet was quite amused. Thankfully, we didn’t need to wait very long for his first lowlight of the year in the outfield during this morning’s Diamondbacks-Dodgers game in Australia. Trumbo also nearly allowed Clayton Kershaw (you know, Clayton Kershaw, the pitcher...
