Trumbo, who was acquired from the Angels in a three-team trade in December, asked for $5.85 million and was offered $3.4 million from the Diamondbacks when arbitration figures were exchanged last month. The two sides ended up settling for a little over the midpoint.
Trumbo owns a .299 on-base percentage and a .768 OPS through 460 games in the majors, but his power is legitimate, as he’s tied for fifth with 95 home runs over the past three seasons. He’ll turn 29 later this month and remains under team control through 2016.
