Mark Trumbo 1B/LF.. ARI 1 Month

Trumbo went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI in the Diamondbacks' 12-2 loss to the Royals on Tuesday.

Trumbo seems to heating up at the plate, putting together his third multi-hit game in his last four starts. After notching just nine hits in all of July, Trumbo is 6-for-15 in four games in August. The small streak has raised his batting average to .213 on the season, the best it has been since April.

Diamoncbacks activated OF Mark Trumbo from the 15-day disabled list.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Mark Trumbo (foot) is in San Francisco with the Diamondbacks and could be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

The plan has been to activate him immediately after the All-Star break, but Trumbo appears to have forced the club's hand by hitting five homers over seven rehab games. We should find out shortly whether the Giants indeed plan on activating him early. Trumbo has been sidelined since late April with a stress fracture in his left foot.

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Tuesday that there's an "outside chance" Mark Trumbo (foot) returns from the disabled list on Friday.

"We've had some discussions about it," Gibson said. " . There's an outside chance he could come to San Francisco, but (it's) unlikely." Trumbo has been pegged for a post-All-Star break return, but he's shown the D'Backs he's ready by blasting four home runs over six rehab games. Still, it sounds like they remain likely to play it cautiously and wait until the beginning of the second half.

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Monday that he expects Mark Trumbo (foot) to be activated immediately after the All-Star break.

Trumbo has moved his rehab assignment up to Triple-A Reno after homering twice in four rehab game with the Arizona League Diamondbacks. The D'Backs season is a lost one at this point, but they'll still be happy to welcome Trumbo back and fantasy owners no doubt will, as well. He was batting .210/.264/.506 with seven homers and 19 RBI over 21 games before suffering a stress fracture in his left foot.

Mark Trumbo (foot) is about 10-14 days away from rejoining the Diamondbacks.

Trumbo was the designated hitter for the Diamondbacks' Arizona League team on Tuesday and could join Triple-A Reno's roster next week. The slugger is on pace to be activated right around the All-Star break. He batted .210/.264/.506 with seven homers and 19 RBI over 21 games before getting injured.

Mark Trumbo (foot) is expected to be cleared to run the bases before the end of the week.

Trumbo faced live pitching for the second straight day Tuesday and will continue to face more over the next few days at the Diamondbacks' spring training complex. The slugger has recovered slower than expected from a stress fracture in his left foot but has made nice progress lately. He's expected back around the All-Star break.

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Thursday that Mark Trumbo (foot) is still "three weeks away, base-case scenario, from full baseball activities."

He'll need another week of rehab games after that, meaning that Trumbo won't return until mid-July at the earliest. The All-Star break is July 14-17, so it sounds like he probably won't be back until the second half. Trumbo was supposed to miss six weeks after going down in late April, so obviously his recovery from a stress fracture hasn't gone as hoped.
