The D’backs and Mariners hooked up a big trade in June when Welington Castillo, among others, came to Phoenix in exchange for Trumbo and Vidal Nuno. Arizona has clearly gotten the better end of this deal as Castillo has provided a solid bat and good defense behind the plate. Trumbo, brought in for some pop, has delivered only three home runs in 145 plate appearances. His on-base percentage is an anemic .255 with the Mariners, low even by his standards. In addition to the left field he was acquired to play for Arizona, Seattle has had him in right, at first and at the DH spot. Trumbo is hitless in his previous nine at-bats.
