The Diamondbacks are hoping that Yasmany Tomas can step in and be a force in the lineup. And that A.J. Pollock can put together a full, productive season. And that Aaron Hill can deliver a bounce-back year.

But manager Chip Hale noted that when the subject turns to his lineup and the all of the things that need to come together, outfielder Mark Trumbo often goes unmentioned.

"When we talk about all the potential offensive stars that we have, sometimes he gets forgotten," Hale said. "We're looking for Tomas to do this, we're looking for Goldy (Paul Goldschmidt) to do this, we're looking for Lamb to come — and all of a sudden you start thinking, Trumbo has done it. He's hit 30 home runs in Anaheim. He knows what he's doing."

A year ago, Trumbo came into camp as the Diamondbacks' biggest off-season acquisition. The club hoped his power and run production would lengthen the lineup and perhaps give teams pause before pitching around Goldschmidt.
