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.
Apr 20 - 6:11 PM

A.J. Pollock went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Giants.

Pollock had the key hit of the game, snapping a 1-1 tie via a solo home run off Ty Blach to lead off the sixth inning. He's up to four home runs, now, to pair with a .254/.311/.582 batting line. Of his 17 hits this season, a hearty 13 have gone for extra bases. All power comes with a price, though, and Pollock has also struck out eight times in his last 12 at-bats.
Apr 20 - 12:25 AM

A.J. Pollock finished 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and three RBI in Saturday's 9-1 road victory against the Dodgers.

It appears Friday's routine day of rest certainly did him some good, as he entered the day with just one homer over his first 47 at-bats. The cleanup hitter for the Snakes will post power numbers in bunches. Perhaps this two-homer game will spur him on. He'll face Clayton Kershaw on Sunday afternoon in a tough matchup. Pollock is just 7-of-34 (.206) with a double, triple, two RBI and eight strikeouts in his career against the L.A. southpaw.
Apr 15 - 4:16 AM

A.J. Pollock is absent from the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Friday.

It looks to be just a routine day of rest for the hard-hitting outfielder. Jarrod Dyson is starting in center field and batting sixth against Kenta Maeda and the Dodgers while Chris Owings starts in right field.
Apr 13 - 6:23 PM

A.J. Pollock went 1-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's 5-4 loss at San Francisco.

Pollock showed off his versatility in this outing with his eighth and ninth RBI and his fourth stolen base. The Arizona cleanup hitter is a true five-tool player, showing off a solid average with pop and speed. He'll face a San Francisco starter making his major league debut for the second consecutive day when southpaw Andrew Suarez toes the slab on Wednesday.
Apr 11 - 2:21 AM

A.J. Pollock went 2-for-4 with a home run, a stolen base and two runs scored to help the Diamondbacks beat the Cardinals 4-1 on Sunday.

Pollock's first homer of the year came against Cardinals reliever Mike Mayers, sailing into the visiting bullpen to give the D'backs an insurance run in the eighth inning. Perhaps more impressively, he swiped second base against Cardinals Gold Glove catcher Yadier Molina, his third steal of the young season. Pollock is supremely talented and appears healthy to start the year, batting .343/.425/.657 through nine games.
Apr 8 - 7:06 PM

A.J. Pollock went 2-for-3 with an RBI single, a double and a run scored in Saturday's loss to the Cardinals.

Pollock was the rare offensive performer for the Diamondbacks in this one. As a team, they finished with just five total hits. The outfielder picked up his RBI single in the first inning, hitting it off Michael Wacha. He's been on a doubles tear to open the season, having now collected two-baggers in each of his last three games and four of his last five. On the young season, Pollock is slashing .323/.417/.581 with seven extra-base hits and five RBI across 31 at-bats.
Apr 7 - 5:36 PM

A.J. Pollock doubled and stole a base Wednesday in the Diamondbacks’ 3-0 win over the Dodgers.

The steal was his second of the year. Pollock has hit safely in five of the D’Backs’ first six games while batting .304 with four RBI. Five of Pollock’s seven hits this year have gone for extra bases including four doubles. Wednesday’s win completed a three-game sweep of the Dodgers while improving Arizona’s record to 5-1.
Apr 4 - 7:24 PM

A.J. Pollock was hitless in three at-bats with a walk and drove in his fourth RBI of the season Tuesday against the Dodgers.

It wasn't Pollock's finest outing, as his modest four-game hitting streak to open the season came to an end. However, he has drawn at least one walk in four of the five outings and he has driven in four runs over the past four outings. He is playing on a one-year, $7.75 million deal and looking for a huge payday next offseason, so fantasy owners should expect his best.
Apr 4 - 1:57 AM

Diamondbacks and OF A.J. Pollock avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $7.75 million contract.

He received a $1 million raise in what was his final year of arbitration eligibility. Pollock will hit the open market next winter as part of an impressive free agent cast.
Jan 12 - 1:03 PM

A.J. Pollock went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's playoff loss to the Dodgers.

His third-inning shot was the first of four solo home runs surrendered by Clayton Kershaw in the ballgame. Pollock had a .266 batting average with 14 homers, 49 RBI and 73 runs scored in 112 games this year for the Diamondbacks.
Sat, Oct 7, 2017 02:33:00 AM

A.J. Pollock hit his 14th home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Royals.

Pollock also walked and scored in the game. The homer, a no-doubter into the fountain in left-center field, gave the D'backs a fleeting 2-1 lead in the sixth inning. A .267/.332/.473 line with 14 homers, 49 RBI, 73 runs scored and 20 steals in 111 games would be a good year for some, but it's a disappointing total given what we've seen of Pollock's ability when healthy. Alas, health will likely always be an issue for the 29-year-old, limiting his upside as a fantasy commodity. If he ever does play a full slate of games again, though, the return will almost assuredly outweigh the cost.
Sun, Oct 1, 2017 12:26:00 AM

A.J. Pollock had a three-run homer, a walk and two runs scored Wednesday in the Diamondbacks' 13-7 win over the Padres.

The Diamondbacks scored 11 runs in the final four innings of the game, with Pollock's blast putting the contest out of reach in the top of the ninth. Pollock has three hoemrs in two days and 15 RBI in his last seven games. 27 of his 47 RBI on the season have come in his last 26 games.
Thu, Sep 21, 2017 01:20:00 AM

A.J. Pollock finished 3-for-3 with a double, two solo home runs and a walk across three at-bats in Saturday's 6-2 loss in San Diego.
