Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Mark Trumbo was placed on the 15-day disabled list today with a stress fracture in his left foot. The injury may have been sustained in Arizona's game versus the Chicago Cubs this past Monday when Trumbo began to feel pain in his left foot while running to the outfield.
For now it is still unclear exactly how much time Trumbo will be forced to miss. When he suffered a stress fracture in his right foot at the end of the 2011 season with the Angels it took about 5 1/2 months before his foot was healed and he could resume on-field activity. This fracture is not believed to be as serious and it is not believed Trumbo will be forced to miss as much time.
Arizona recalled outfielder Roger Kieschnick from Triple-A Reno to fill Trumbo's spot on the active roster.
Trumbo is hitting .210 with 7 home runs and 19 RBI's through 21 games this year.
