PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks have placed left fielder Mark Trumbo on the 15-day disabled list with a stress fracture in his right foot and recalled outfielder Roger Kieschnick from Triple-A Reno.

Trumbo said he felt pain while jogging to his position Monday against the Chicago Cubs and an MRI revealed the stress fracture. He goes on the DL retroactive to Tuesday.

Trumbo, who was part of a three-way trade with the White Sox and Angels during the offseason, was tied for the NL lead with seven homers and second with 19 RBIs. He was hitting .210 and tied for the team lead with 22 strikeouts for the 6-18 Diamondbacks.

Kieschnick hit .281 with three homers and eight RBIs in 18 games at Reno this season.
