Hill recently spoke with D-Backs hitting coach Turner Ward about his early-season struggles, but Ward did not see anything that needs to be adjusted in the second baseman's swing, the Arizona Republic reports.
D-Backs pitching coach Mike Harkey believes that Arroyo was rushed back from his back injury during spring training, the Arizona Republic reports. "You have to give him the benefit of the doubt when you're talking about where he is physically," Harkey said. "As far as his arm is concerned, nobody knows better than him what it takes for him to get ready. In hindsight, I wish I could have got him more innings and more time on the mound before we got him out there against the Giants (on April 3), but it is what it is, and now we have to deal with it."
Trumbo and the D-Backs haven't offered a timetable yet on his return from the stress fracture in his foot, which he was diagnosed with Wednesday. However, he did say that he had a stress fracture in his right foot in 2011 and it took 5.5 months to heal, and he claims that his latest injury isn't as severe, the Arizona Republic reports.
