Trumbo is out of the lineup Saturday against the Pirates.

Ender Inciarte will get the nod in right field and push Trumbo to the bench after five straight starts. Trumbo hit a ground-rule double in Friday's loss, giving him hits in 12 of 14 games to begin the season.

Trumbo went 2-for-4 with two RBI on Wednesday in an 8-5 win over the Rangers.

The big right fielder is still stuck on just one home run so far this season, but he has a .288/.288/.442 line that is a significant improvement over his career batting average mark. Still, most fantasy owners who picked up Trumbo were looking for more thump and will need to stay patient as the home runs will come even as fewer singles fall in for htis.

Trumbo went 2-for-4 in his return to the lineup Saturday in a 4-1 loss to the Giants.

Trumbo rested Friday as manager Chip Hale rotates his outfielders in and out of the lineup. Trumbo has hits in seven straight to get his batting line up to .300/.300/.500 in the early going, but has hit just one home run. He is hitting a few more balls on the ground so far - 48% of balls he puts in play compared to his career rate of 45% - at the expense of fly balls. These trends will likely correct themselves toward his career rates, but they bear some watching as they could reduce his home run totals if they continued over the season.

Trumbo is not in the Friday, MLB.com's Steve Gilbert reports.

Ender Inciarte gets the start in right field as Trumbo gets a well-deserved day off. He has a six-game hitting streak going but he also has not taken a walk yet this year. Still, he's slugging .500 through nine games and figures to be in the lineup most days playing right field.

Trumbo hit his first home run of the year off Giants' ace Madison Bumgarner on Thursday in a 7-6 extra-innings win over the Giants. He scored once and had one RBI.

Trumbo is having a decent start to the year hitting .278/.278/.500, so hopefully this homer gets him going and he pops a few more in the coming days. Surprisingly he hit two triples before his first big fly left the yard. Next up on the list of firsts this season for Trumbo: taking a walk.

Trumbo went 1-for-4 and drove in Arizona's only run Tuesday in a 5-1 loss to the Padres.

Trumbo's hit, his first double of the season, came off of starter Odrisamer Despaigne who tied the D-Backs in knots for seven innings. With just three extra-base hits so far (and no home runs), Trumbo is experiencing an early-season power outage, but since there is no indication of injury just stay patient as the big hits are coming.

Trumbo went 2-for-4 with a run scored Monday in an 8-4 win over San Diego.

Trumbo owners may not have paid for singles, but considering that San Diego was playing a significant shift against the slugger it is positive that he found ways to gets the hits anyway. Of more concern in the early going is that Trumbo has yet to hit a home run or draw a walk through 24 plate appearances. The power will come soon and showing a willingness to hit the ball away from defensive positioning may make pitchers more selective in how they approach the slugger, leading to more opportunities to get on base. Stay patient with Trumbo for now.

Trumbo is not in the Arizona lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers.

This is Trumbo's first missed start of the season and he'll be replaced by Ender Inciarte in right field. The masher has yet to hit a home run and playing right field is still a work in progress, but he is tied for the lead in triples in the National League (with two).

Trumbo hit an RBI triple Monday in a 5-4 Opening Day loss to the Giants.

Trumbo hit a ball just right of center that would have been a homerun in almost any other park, but bounced off of a balcony in Chase Field and allowed him to get all the way to third base. Perhaps just as interestingly, Trumbo made an error in right field. There is a lot of skepticism that he can handle the position and if the DBacks have to move him it could have domino effects through the rest of the lineup.
