Fantasy baseball owners who have enjoyed the early power surge from Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Mark Trumbo have had to go without the slugger in their lineups the past couple days.
If you do own Trumbo, you better get used to that.
After the Diamondbacks come from behind win against the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday, Arizona manager Kirk Gibson announced that the MRI on Trumbo shows an apparent stress fracture in his left foot. Gibson confirmed that Trumbo will seek second opinion at home.

Trumbo missed the last two games with what had been described as a “sore foot,” but it now appears to be much more serious than that.
If the diagnosis is confirmed after the second opinion, then that is a big blow to his owners as Trumbo is likely looking at a long absence.
If there is a positive, Trumbo noted that this isn’t as bad as the stress fracture he has back in 2011 that took five and a half months to heal.
So far this year, Trumbo is hitting .210/.264/.506 with seven home runs in 21 games.
He clubbed 34 homers last season.
