D-Backs' Mark Trumbo likely has stress fracture in left foot
Bad news for the Diamondbacks, as slugging outfielder Mark Trumbo may have a foot fracture.

This season, Trumbo, age 28, is batting .210/.264/.506 with seven home runs in 21 games. He's coming off a 2013 season in which he hit 34 homers for the Angels.
