On Wednesday, Diamondbacks left fielder Mark Trumbo was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his left foot. Trumbo’s foot was examined by a specialist and the D-Backs learned that their slugger will miss six weeks, as the third metatarsal suffered the stress fracture, per Jack Magruder of FOX Sports Arizona.

Trumbo heads to the shelf with a league-leading seven home runs. However, he hadn’t done much else at the plate, carrying a .210/.264/.506 slash line over 84 plate appearances. Trumbo’s poor defense in left field also dragged his value down. Baseball Reference currently lists him at -0.2 WAR.

Cody Ross, Gerardo Parra, and A.J. Pollock are all expected to get some time in left field in Trumbo’s absence.
