The struggling Arizona Diamondbacks made a stunning ninth-inning rally to win at Wrigley Field Wednesday, but the day was marred by the news slugging outfielder Mark Trumbo will miss an extended period of time with a stress fracture in his left foot. If you’d have asked me Wednesday morning to name five players who could lead the majors in home runs, Trumbo, who launched five home runs his first nine games and two since, would be on that list. But now, he’s obviously not on that list.
