A CT scan taken of A.J. Pollock's fractured left thumb Monday showed progress but not enough for him to remove his soft cast.
Pollock is just three weeks into his projected 4-8 week timetable, so the news isn't altogether surprising. It does appear that he'll probably be back closer to the tail-end of that timetable, though. Jun 4 - 11:02 PM

X-rays taken Tuesday on A.J. Pollock's left thumb showed that his avulsion fracture is not yet fully healed.

It was announced earlier this month that Pollock was likely to miss 4-8 weeks, and it sounds like he'll come in on the later end of that timetable. Jarrod Dyson should continue to serve as the Diamondbacks' primary center fielder, with Chris Owings drawing a start here and there. Dyson's speed gives him mixed-league fantasy appeal, though he's batting just .181/.269/.293.

Diamondbacks placed OF A.J. Pollock on the 10-day disabled list with an avulsion fracture in his left thumb.

Pollock suffered the injury while diving for a ball in the outfield on Monday and is expected to be sidelined for the next 4-8 weeks. Jarrod Dyson will get an uptick in playing time in center field and can provide significant fantasy production in the stolen bases department. Chris Owings will also get some run in center while Pollock is out.

A.J. Pollock has been diagnosed with an avulsion fracture in his left thumb and is expected to miss 4-8 weeks.

Pollock suffered the injury Monday night against the Brewers while attempting to make a diving catch on a Tyler Salardino line drive that eventually resulted in an inside-the-park home run. Pollock, who ranks near the top of the MLB leaderboard in WAR through the early part of the 2018 season, will likely be sidelined until at least late June. Jarrod Dyson and Chris Owings figure to share time in center field for Arizona.

A.J. Pollock was pulled from Monday's game against the Brewers with a sprained left thumb.

Pollock's injured the thumb on a dive while trying to catch a Tyler Saladino liner that wound up going for an inside-the-park home run. He is set to undergo an X-ray and likely an MRI, as well, when he sees a hand specialist Tuesday. It could potentially be a long-term absence for Pollock, but we'll just have to wait and see what the exams show.
May 15 - 12:41 AM

A.J. Pollock went 2-for-4 and swiped his ninth base of the season in a losing effort against the Nationals on Sunday.

Pollock continues to produce at an elite level in the middle of the Diamondbacks' lineup, slashing .301/.358/.637 with 11 homers and 33 RBI. He has struggled with injuries and durability concerns over the course of his career, but as long as he remains on the field he's on track for a career year in 2018.
May 13 - 11:26 PM

A.J. Pollock went 1-for-3 and drove in his team's only run in a loss to the Nationals on Saturday.

His third-inning double knocked in Paul Goldschmidt with the tying run, but the Diamondbacks would get shut out the rest of the way in the tight loss. Pollock hasn't been bothered by the new humidor at Chase Field -- he's putting up the best numbers of his career, especially in the power department. He is slashing .296/.354/.667 with 11 homers, 33 RBI and 23 runs. He's stolen eight bases as well.
May 12 - 8:18 PM

A.J. Pollock had a hand in all three Diamondbacks runs in Sunday's win over the Astros, going 2-for-3 with a triple, two RBI and a run scored.

Pollock knocked an RBI triple on a drive to left-center in the sixth inning, with the throw into third base hitting him and skipping away. As he got up to try to score, he collided with Astros third baseman Alex Bregman, and the third base umpire called Bregman for interference, allowing Pollock to score. He added an RBI single in the eighth inning. Opposing pitchers have had a hard time getting the 30-year-old out in recent weeks, and his season line is up to .306/.362/.669 with 10 homers, 29 RBI, 22 runs scored and eight steals after Sunday's game.
May 6 - 7:51 PM

A.J. Pollock finished 1-for-4 with a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth inning in Saturday's 4-3 victory against the Astros.

Pollock also had a sacrifice fly earlier in the game, accounting for two of his team's four RBI. He is hitting .391 (9-for-23) over the past six games to increase his season batting average from .278 to .298 just since April 29. It will be hard to maintain the momentum against Justin Verlander in Sunday's interleague series finale.
May 6 - 2:04 AM

A.J. Pollock collected two hits and a steal Thursday in Arizona’s loss to the Dodgers.

Both hits were singles. Coming off a pair of injury-marred seasons in 2016-17, Pollock has been phenomenal for the D’Backs, hitting .307 with 10 long balls, 25 RBI and eight thefts. It’s good timing with Pollock slated to hit the open market next winter. Even after Thursday’s defeat, the Diamondbacks’ still hold the NL’s best record at 21-10.
May 3 - 7:36 PM

A.J. Pollock finished Tuesday's game against the Dodgers with a solo home run across three at-bats while also drawing a walk.

The homer was Pollock's 10th of the season and it came in the second inning off of Clayton Kershaw. He continues to be impressive, swatting four homers against left-handed pitching and six homers against right-handed pitchers. He'll look to keep up the good work against Dodgers LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu on Wednesday. He is 9-for-26 (.346) with two doubles, a triple and four RBI in his career against the L.A. southpaw.
May 2 - 2:38 AM

A.J. Pollock hit three homers in an 8-5 victory over the Dodgers on Monday.

Pollock now has nine homers on the season to go along with 24 RBI. The only blemish on the night was that he was caught stealing in the second inning. It's a tremendous beginning to the 2018 campaign for the right-handed hitting outfielder, who now sports an OPS of 1.021 on the year. You can't have much better of an April than he's had, and if this keeps up, he'll be an MVP candidate.
May 1 - 1:12 AM

A.J. Pollock went 3-for-4 with a homer and a triple, leading the Diamondbacks to a 5-4 victory over the Nationals on Friday.

Pollock got the Snakes on the board by blasting a solo homer off of Stephen Strasburg in the first inning. He then added an RBI triple that tied the game in the sixth and came around to score the go-ahead run. He's now hitting .286/.340/.615 with six homers, 19 RBI and six stolen bases on the year.
Apr 27 - 11:04 PM

A.J. Pollock (hand) was back in the lineup Saturday against the Padres and he finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI.

Pollock was not in the starting lineup on Friday due to a right hand injury, but he didn't show any ill effects of the injury on his oppo smash in the third inning off of Clayton Richard. It appears safe to plug Pollock back into the active fantasy lineup if you haven't already done so.
Apr 22 - 1:05 AM

A.J. Pollock is absent from the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Friday due to a right hand injury.

Pollock injured his hand in a collision with teammate Chris Owings on Thursday. Diamondbacks' manager Torey Lovullo doesn't believe the injury to be serious and expects him to return to lineup on Saturday. Jarrod Dyson is sliding over to start in center field while Daniel Descalso starts in left field and will bat cleanup against Tyson Ross and the Padres.
