If you’re a fan of the Arizona Diamondbacks then you should be absolutely stoked.
Today, the D’Backs participated in a three team trade with the Los Angeles Angels and the Chicago White Sox. The Angels sent outfielder-first baseman Mark Trumbo to Arizona. The D’Backs sent outfielder Adam Eaton while the Angels received pitchers Hector Santiago and Tyler Skaggs from the Chisox and the D’Backs respectively.
But the big name here is Trumbo. On a team that included Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton and Mike Trout, it was Trumbo who led the Angels in HR and RBI (34, 100). OK, he only hit .234 and struck out 184 times last season. But when Trumbo hit he did a lot of damage and will do more in hitter friendly Chase Field.
