Arizona Diamondbacks OF Cody Ross (calf) was placed on the disabled list Tuesday, July 22, with a left calf strain. In a corresponding move, OF Alfredo Marte was recalled from Triple-A Reno.
Fantasy Tip: Ross has had a disappointing 2014 season, and started only five games in July. There is a chance he'll see even less playing time when he returns.

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Mark Trumbo (foot) is expected to return after the All-Star break.
Fantasy Tip: Ender Inciarte and Cody Ross could see significantly reduced playing time with the emergence of David Peralta and presence of Gerardo Parra upon Trumbo's return. Parra hasn't played a lot of center field the last two years, but he's an elite defender and could see time there.

Arizona Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock (hand) sustained a fracture in his right hand Saturday, May 31, when he was hit by a pitch. He'll be placed on the disabled list Sunday, June 1, and should miss significant time. The club is still determining whether surgery will be necessary.
Fantasy Tip: It's a big blow to a bat who was raking, as well as his owners. This is an unfortunate way to clear up playing time for Mark Trumbo's (foot) imminent return. Cody Ross and Gerardo Parra should be nearly locked into the lineup, but someone like Alfredo Marte could chip in, as well, for NL-only purposes.

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Mark Trumbo (foot) is dealing with a stress fracture in his left foot after undergoing an MRI exam. He will receive a second opinion.
Fantasy Tip: If the initial diagnosis is confirmed, Trumbo will be out for an extended period of time. It'll be a big blow, since hed a nice start for his new squad with seven homers, despite a .210 batting average. Cody Ross and Tony Campana will benefit with more playing time, specifically Ross. Keep in mind, however, that Ross is coming off a serious hip injury and is much better against lefties. Bid accordingly in deep mixed leagues.

The Arizona Diamondbacks activated OF Cody Ross (hip) from the 15-day disabled list Friday, April 18, and designated RP Ryan Rowland-Smith for assignment in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Maybe this is the spark that the D-Backs need in order to turn around their atrocious start. Ross is likely to be eased back in, but the loser here is A.J. Pollock. Ross can provide some decent power numbers for deep mixed managers, but at this stage of his career, he's more of a platoon player.

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Cody Ross (hip) played six innings with Triple-A Reno Monday, April 7, and he's looking good during his rehab assignment. "He's doing good," manager Kirk Gibson said. "He's running and moving much better. Much better. He's made vast improvements since he's been down there starting to play. He played left last night. I texted him last night and told him to make sure he moves around." The team plans to put Ross in either left or right field when he returns, but he could also see time in center if he's moving around well.
