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.
