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.

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Cody Ross (hip) participated in his first spring training game Sunday, March 16, as a pinch hitter.

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Cody Ross (hip) played in his first intrasquad spring game Wednesday, March 12, going 3-for-6 with two doubles.
Fantasy Tip: Ross' power began to disappear before his ugly hip injury last season. He won't be full speed by the time the regular season starts, either, and it could take him half the season to be back to 100 percent. Platoon duty against lefties is probably where he's headed, meaning he doesn't warrant much consideration unless you're in an NL-only league.
