D-backs place outfielder Mark Trumbo on 15-day D.L.

The Arizona Diamondbacks placed left fielder Mark Trumbo on the 15-day disabled list Thursday and recalled outfielder Roger Kieschnick from Triple-A Reno.

An MRI revealed Trumbo has a stress fracture in the third metatarsal of his left foot. The imaging also revealed, according to Trumbo, some plantar fascia that he was already aware of.

In his first season with Arizona, Trumbo was tied for the National League lead with 7 home runs and was second with 19 RBI.

Kieschnick, 27, was hitting .281 (18-for-64) in Reno, with 3 home runs and 8 RBI. He was claimed off waivers from San Francisco in early April. Kieschnick, who will be in the lineup Thursday vs. the Cubs in the series finale, has a career Major League average of .202 (18-for-95).

He was originally a third-round pick of the Giants in 2008 out of Texas Tech.
