In an appearance on MLB Network, Diamondbacks GM Dave Stewart said that Mark Trumbo will serve as the team’s everyday right fielder next season, Jack Magruder of FOX Sports Arizona reports.

Trumbo split his playing time between first base and left field this past season. He has logged 434 2/3 defensive innings in right field over his four-year career, including 143 innings there in 2013 with the Angels.

Trumbo missed 71 games on the disabled list with a stress fracture in his left foot. When he was in the D-Backs’ lineup, he hit .235/.293/.415 with 14 home runs and 61 RBI.

Via Magruder, Stewart also said he plans to have David Peralta and Ender Inciarte split time in left field.

Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. scaled the center field fence to rob Padres shortstop Luis Urías of a solo home run in the fourth inning of Sunday afternoon’s game. Urías was trying to take advantage of a 0-1 slider from Ryan Brasier. Had Bradley not made the grab, the Padres’ lead would have been extended to 4-1.

Unfortunately for the Red Sox, they weren’t able to take advantage of Bradley’s effort, dropping Sunday’s contest 3-1. They still won the series against the Padres, however. The Sox will continue their road trip for two games against the Rockies followed by three versus the Angels.
