Latest Update Marlins showing interest in trumbo Sat Dec, 13, 08:27 PM
Has big-time power and the ability to drive in plenty of runs at all levels. Can play several different positions, which adds to his overall value.
Flaws: : Lacks batting consistency and defensive ability (no matter what position he is playing). Could also stand to improve his walk/strikeout ratio.
Trumbo's name has come up in talks this offseason, and while the Diamondbacks haven't seemed to be exactly eager to trade him away, he is certainly in a position that he could be traded. Trumbo has huge power despite a low average, and with the Marlins looking to contend in 2015, they'll take the lower average for some added pop in Miami's lineup. Analyst: Ben Diamond
After making it very clear that Trumbo was not available for trade a few days ago, there have been leaks that a recent three way trade involving Trumbo fell through recently. Mixed messages like this from front offices are the exact type of politicking that we all expect to go on at the MLB Winter Meetings. It's good to see baseball back in the news. Analyst: Dom Murtha
Early in the season it appeared that Trumbo was having some difficulty in left field, but he was working hard at improving. Unfortunately though, the fractured foot took him out for most of the season and there was never a real opportunity for him to develop. A switch to right might only make a difference in who the Diamondbacks pursue on the free agent market.Analyst: Howard Bender
The home run was Trumbo's 12th of the season (342 PA). For the season, he's slashing .239/.298/.410, which puts him on pace to dip below the .300 OBP mark for the second season in a row. Adam Eaton, who was shipped out in the deal for Trumbo this offseason, had a breakout year in Chicago and is much less expensive. It's a good thing GM Kevin Towers was sent packing.
