The Diamondbacks eked out an ugly 7-5 victory Wednesday over the Cubs on the 100th anniversary of Wrigley Field — the Snakes’ sixth win in 24 games this season — but bad news greeted the team when they returned to the visitors clubhouse.

According to beat writer Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, starting left fielder Mark Trumbo has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his left foot. Trumbo is headed back to Phoenix, Arizona to have the foot examined by a specialist so that the D’Backs can get a better idea of the injury’s severity.

Trumbo did not play Tuesday or Wednesday due to what was described as “foot soreness.”

An MRI taken Wednesday afternoon in Chicago revealed the stress fracture.

The 28-year-old was batting .210/.264/.506 with seven home runs and 19 RBI in 21 games played.

    Wow, there’s a dark cloud of grit hanging over this team right now.

      A very distressing situation.

    Ugh. I guess when it rains, it pours. Frustrating times for the D-Backs and their fans, here’s to hoping Trumbo (a big acquisition for them and a big cog in their offense) can mend quickly.

    Looks like Cody Ross got healthy just in time to become the Dbacks every day outfielder that hits .200.

    I hate Miguel Montero.

    Unless Trumbo can pitch a few hundred innings to an ERA under 4.00 he wasn’t going to solve the DBacks problems this season anyway.

    What mess in the desert right now…the most exciting thing at the ballpark is their 25.00 hot dog….I’ll see you guys next year or until you change up the GM and coach and give us hope…Forget it there’s no hope as KT traded away the farm for grit

      Hopefully the hot dog is also the only thing in the park that is not gritty.

    Well, we have tickets for Saturday and were looking forward to seeing Trumbo again. Now we just get a load of D-back suckage and grit. Well, it is bobblehead night.

      Unfortunately, it is a “play the game the right way” bobblehead, without the showboating comically large sized head or taunting movements.

    I’m a dodger fan – hoping for a speedy recovery . Trumbo is a class act
