A.J. Pollock went 2-for-4 with three runs batted in Wednesday against the Angels.

Pollock knocked in a run with a second-inning double, then two more runs with a sixth-inning single. The 27-year-old is hitting a lusty .438 (7-for-16) thus far, picking right where he left off last season. He finished 2014 with a .302/.353/.498 triple-slash line but logged only 285 plate appearances due to a fractured hand. Pollock could be a dynamic fantasy asset if he can avoid injuries going forward.

A.J. Pollock went 3-for-3 with a run scored in Monday's game versus the White Sox.

All three hits were singles, but we're not complaining. Pollock had an injury-shortened 2014 season but was terrific when healthy, batting .302/.353/.498 with seven homers and 14 steals over 75 games. He could have a breakout 2015 if he can stay on the field.
Mar 9 - 7:51 PM

A.J. Pollock went 3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI against the Padres on Friday.

It was Pollock's first homer since he came off the DL on Sept. 2. He's now started four straight games since tweaking his groin and missing a couple of games last weekend. It bodes well for him being at least semi-useful in mixed leagues during the final two weeks.

A.J. Pollock singled in one of his three at-bats in his return to action Tuesday.

It was one of just four hits the D'Backs had on the night. Pollock hadn't started since Friday due to a minor groin strain, but Arizona thinks he'll be OK moving forward.

The Diamondbacks hope A.J. Pollock (groin) will be ready to return to the lineup on Tuesday.

A.J. Pollock finished 3-for-4 with a double and a stolen base in Thursday's win against the Padres.

Pollock has been a force to be reckoned with when he's in the lineup, as he owns a .319/.367/.551 slash line with six home runs, 15 RBI, and nine stolen bases in 200 plate appearances. Pollock was recently activated from the disabled list after missing three months with a fractured right hand.

Diamondbacks activated OF A.J. Pollock from the 15-day disabled list.

Pollock missed three whole months with a fractured right hand. He has always been a highly-productive player when healthy and should carry sneaky fantasy value down the stretch this season. The 26-year-old outfielder boasts 16 home runs, 21 stolen bases, and 100 runs scored in 220 career games at the major league level. Arizona also activated shortstop Chris Owings (shoulder) from the disabled list on Tuesday.

A.J. Pollock (hand) will resume swinging a bat on Monday.

Pollock's rehab assignment has been on hold after he was hit by a pitch on his surgically-repaired right hand. The plunking didn't cause any additional damage, but the D'Backs are playing it safely. He should be activated pretty soon if he can avoid another setback.

A.J. Pollock is dealing with soreness in his surgically-repaired right hand after being hit on the same hand by a pitch during his rehab assignment last week.

Pollock was hit by the pitch in his first game for the Arizona League Diamondbacks on July 31. It initially wasn't a big deal, as he returned to action two days later and eventually moved his rehab up to Triple-A Reno. However, the hand has developed soreness recently and he hasn't played since last Friday. The good news is that a doctor determined Pollock did no further damage and he's expected to return to action later this week. The D'Backs had been hoping to activate Pollock by now, but they'll have to wait a bit longer.

A.J. Pollock (hand) began a rehab assignment with the Diamondbacks' Arizona League team on Thursday.

He was retired in his lone at-bat, but that hardly matters. Pollock has been sidelined for the last two months after breaking his right hand and is expected to need a couple weeks' worth of rehab at-bats before being activated. He was hitting .316/.366/.554 with six homers, 15 RBI and eight steals before getting hurt, so feel free to stash him now if he's been dropped in your league.

A.J. Pollock (hand) will take live batting practice on Tuesday.

If it goes well, he'll be cleared to begin a rehab assignment with the Arizona League Diamondbacks. Pollock will need a couple weeks' worth of rehab at-bats but is tracking towards a return to the D'Backs in mid-August. He's been sidelined for the last two months after breaking his right hand.

A.J. Pollock (hand) is expected to begin a rehab assignment soon.

Pollock has been sidelined for two months following surgery to repair a fractured right hand, but he recently resumed baseball activities and is almost ready to test things out in game action. The D'Backs are hoping to get the outfielder back in mid-August.
Sun, Jul 27, 2014 09:36:00 AM

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson indicated Tuesday that A.J. Pollock (hand) could be ready to begin a rehab assignment on August 1.

Making his way back from surgery to repair a fractured right hand, Pollock is close to resuming baseball activities. The August 1 timetable for a rehab assignment sounds right, as the D'Backs had looked at mid-August as a possible return date for the outfielder. He was batting .316/.366/.554 with six homers, 15 RBI and eight steals before breaking his hand in late May.
