It's early. Very early, in fact.

But with that said, it's safe to say Arizona Diamondbacks left fielder Mark Trumbo is off to a torrid start at the dish through the first eight games of the 2014 season.

Trumbo's power surge got us thinking, how does it stack up with the one former D-backs left fielder Luis Gonzalez put together during his magical run through April 2001?

The results might surprise you.


Luis Gonzalez (2001):

Gonzalez did, however, finish the month with 13 long balls -- tying Ken Griffey Jr. for the most ever in April.

Will Trumbo get to lucky No. 13 by the end of April? Well, he's certainly on his way.
