Trumbo, 28, is tied for the NL lead with 7 home runs and ranks second with 19 RBI at the time of the transaction. His 7 home runs are a career high for March/April and are the most by a D-back since Chris Young in 2011.

His 102 home runs since 2011 are the third most in the Majors behind Miguel Cabrera (120) and Jose Bautista (104).
Kieschnick, 27, was batting .281 (18-for-64) with 5 doubles, 3 home runs and 8 RBI in 18 games with Reno this season. He was claimed by Arizona off waivers from the San Francisco Giants on April 4.
