Mark Trumbo and home runs have long been associated with each other.

At best he can remember, the new Diamondbacks slugger hit his first homer when he was 6. He was almost always bigger than his peers — at 6-4, 235 pounds, he still is — and early on his swing imparted a lot of backspin on the baseball, allowing it to carry farther.

His power-hitting prowess is why the Diamondbacks sacrificed two of their top young players, center fielder Adam Eaton and pitcher Tyler Skaggs, to acquire the 28-year-old Trumbo from the Los Angeles Angels this off-season.

Only four players hit more home runs in the past three seasons than Trumbo’s 95. In a hitter-friendly park such as Chase Field, it’s not difficult to see Trumbo hitting 40.

The Diamondbacks will be happy if he produces like that, even if it means stomaching Trumbo’s career .250 average and .299 on-base percentage. They’ll live with a high number of strikeouts if Trumbo parks the ball in the stands with regularity.

But Trumbo won’t be happy. He doesn’t want to be just a home-run hitter. He wants to be a complete hitter.

“There’s a place where I could probably continue going at what I’ve done for a decent career,” Trumbo said. “But I think ultimately it’s my responsibility to maximize my output and do as much as I can to help the team I’m with. I think as a complete hitter with a few tweaks here and there, I’ll have a lot more to offer than I have in the past.”
