Mark Trumbo 1B/LF.. ARI 2 Months

Mark Trumbo went 1-for-2 with his first home run in a win over the Brewers on Saturday.

The homer was Trumbo's first in a Diamondbacks uniform after the club acquired him from the Angels this winter. The 27-year-old hit 34 homers while driving in 100 runs last year, and the D'backs are hoping for more of the same this year.

Diamondbacks and OF Mark Trumbo avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.8 million contract.

Trumbo requested $5.85 million and was offered $3.4 million from the Diamondbacks when arbitration figures were exchanged last month, so the two sides settled for a little over the midpoint. The 27-year-old slugger was acquired from the Angels in December and remains under team control through 2016.

Mark Trumbo requested $5.85 million and was offered $3.4 million from the Diamondbacks when arbitration figures were exchanged on Friday.

It doesn't matter how little Trumbo gets on base, after slugging 66 homers and driving home 195 runs over the past two seasons he'll earn a substantial raise over the $540,000 that he earned in 2013. Provided you can handle the average risk and lack of speed, Trumbo remains a strong target in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts.

Diamondbacks acquired OF Mark Trumbo and two PTBNLs in a three-team trade with the Angels and White Sox.

White Sox left-hander Hector Santiago will head to the Angels along with Diamondbacks southpaw Tyler Skaggs. Chicago is getting center fielder Adam Eaton. Trumbo is expected to play left field in 2014 for the Snakes, who have been looking for a power bat since the offseason began. Trumbo, 27, batted .234/.294/.453 with 34 home runs and 100 RBI in 159 games this past season for Anaheim and is heading to one of the more slugger-friendly parks in the major leagues.

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the three-team trade that will send Mark Trumbo to the Diamondbacks is "done."

Finally some action from this week's Winter Meetings. We're still waiting on an official announcement, but Piecoro hears that Trumbo and two players to be named later will head to the Diamondbacks while the Angels will receive Tyler Skaggs and Hector Santiago and Adam Eaton will be sent to the White Sox. The Angels were reluctant to move Trumbo, but he was their best chip to secure some upgrades in the rotation. And they were able to accomplish it here.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman writes that the three-way trade involving Angels slugger Mark Trumbo is said to be "moving closer to reality."

MLB.com's Steve Gilbert reports that, if the Diamondbacks do acquire slugger Mark Trumbo in a trade, they would also receive a pair of good prospects.

The latest rumor involves the Angels, Diamondbacks, and the White Sox involved in a three-way trade. Reportedly, the Diamondbacks would receive Trumbo and two prospects, the Angels would get Tyler Skaggs and Hector Santiago, and the White Sox would get Adam Eaton. Trumbo, who spent most of his time at first base and DH with the Angels last season, would play in the outfield in Arizona.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that one possible deal on the table would have the Angels trade Mark Trumbo to the Diamondbacks for Trevor Cahill and Tyler Skaggs.

If that's the case, we're not sure what the Angels are waiting for here. Acquiring either Cahill or Skaggs would probably be sufficient enough, but getting both would be quite a coup and address a major area of need. The Diamondbacks are in the market for a power bat and are prepared to use their pitching surplus in order to do it.

Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com hears that there's a "good chance" that Mark Trumbo will be traded at this week's Winter Meetings.

The Diamondbacks have been mentioned most prominently in trade talks, but Gonzalez hears that the Angels are engaged in talks with many teams. The thought is that the 27-year-old slugger will be moved for a pitcher. Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic hears that talks with the Diamondbacks are more focused on Tyler Skaggs than Trevor Cahill.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that trade talks between the Angels and Diamondbacks regarding Mark Trumbo have some "traction."

Crasnick adds, however, that there's "nothing imminent." If the two sides do get something done, it's expected that either Trevor Cahill or Tyler Skaggs will head to Anaheim in the deal. The Halos could also conceivably get both pitchers if the trade were to be expanded to include more than Trumbo.
