A.J. Pollock pinch-hit in the eighth inning and slugged a two-run home run which broke a tie and helped the D'Backs beat the Marlins on Tuesday.

Pollock pinch-hit for David Peralta against lefty reliever Mike Dunn. Manager Chip Hale's move paid off, as Pollock's blast broke a 2-2 tie and proved to be the deciding factor in the win. Pollock has four round-trippers on the year along with 15 RBI and a .285/.331/.409 triple-slash line.
May 19 - 10:07 PM

A.J. Pollock is not in the Diamondbacks starting lineup on Saturday.

It's nothing more than a day of rest for Pollock. The Diamondbacks will roll with an outfield of Ender Inciarte, David Peralta and Mark Trumbo against Phillies right-hander Jerome Williams.
May 16 - 3:35 PM

A.J. Pollock went 2-for-5 and hit his second homer Friday against the Padres.

Pollock has hit second more often than first, but he should prove to be the Diamondbacks' best option in the leadoff spot over the long haul. He's batting .307 with nine walks and 20 runs scored in 101 at-bats.
May 9 - 1:58 AM

A.J. Pollock went 4-for-5 with a double, a walk and a steal versus the Giants on Friday.

Pollock has picked a good time to get hot. He's the Diamondbacks' best outfielder, but he was still vulnerable to losing playing time because of Ender Inciarte's hot start. Pollock, who homered Thursday, is now batting .333 with five walks, six RBI and nine runs scored in 39 at-bats.
Apr 18 - 1:37 AM

A.J. Pollock smacked a solo homer in Thursday's 7-6, 12-inning victory against the Giants.

Pollock slapped a Santiago Casilla slider down the left field line in the tenth inning, a hooking line drive that banged off the foul pole for his first round-tripper of the campaign. Arizona's bullpen blew its second save in two innings in the bottom half of the frame, but the team held on to win in 12, taking the series opener and improving to 5-5. Pollock finished 2-for-6, adding a double. He's off to a .265/.359/.412 start.
Apr 17 - 2:52 AM

A.J. Pollock hit a three-run double in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

Pollock hit the ninth inning double off reliever Chris Hatcher before finishing the day 1-for-5. This follows a 3-for-3 game on Saturday. Pollock's acting as the Diamondbacks leadoff hitter. He slashed .302/.353/.498 in 2014 and is off to a nice start in 2015.
Apr 12 - 8:14 PM

A.J. Pollock went 3-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored versus the Dodgers on Saturday.

Pollock should be a fine mixed-league outfielder this year while serving as the Diamondbacks' regular leadoff man. He doesn't have an extra-base hit yet, but those will come and he has scored four runs already.
Apr 12 - 2:27 AM

A.J. Pollock went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI, a stolen base, and a run scored as the Diamondbacks fell 11-10 in 10 innings to the Rockies on Sunday.

Pollock put the D'Backs on the board in the third inning with an RBI fielder's choice ground out, which was the start of a six-run outburst. Pollock is batting a hot .373 (22-for-59) with four stolen bases this spring. If he can stay healthy, Pollock should bring mixed league value this season.
Mar 29 - 7:52 PM

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.
Mar 11 - 8:02 PM

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.
Sat, Sep 13, 2014 01:47:00 AM

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.
Wed, Sep 10, 2014 04:19:00 AM

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

Pollock is nursing a minor groin tweak. He's hitting .321/.368/.547 for the D'Backs this season.
Sun, Sep 7, 2014 03:38:00 PM

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.
