It’s a big day for the players. First Pedro Alvarez, now Mark Trumbo, who just won his arbitration case against the Diamondbacks. Trumbo will receive $6.9 million. The Dbacks filed at $5.3 million.
Trumbo appeared in only 88 games last season due to a stress fracture in his left foot, but he still hit 14 homers in an era where power is increasingly rare. He averaged 32 homers and 94 RBI in his previous three seasons, which no doubt played into the arbitrators’ decision.
