A.J. Pollock hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the top of the 10th inning Monday as the Diamondbacks defeated the Mets 3-2.
It proved to be a huge home run for the Wild Card-hunting Diamondbacks after Michael Conforto answered with a solo shot off Fernando Rodney in the bottom of the 10th. Pollock isn't having a very good August overall and is up to just six home runs in 79 games this season, but the dynamic 29-year-old center fielder certainly possesses the goods to finish strong down the stretch.

A.J. Pollock had two hits, including a double, and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Cardinals.

It was Pollock who led off the fourth inning with a double against Cardinals starter Luke Weaver after Weaver had been stingy through the first three innings of work. That set the table for J.D. Martinez's grand slam three batters later, the only runs either team would score in the game. Pollock was less successful on the basepaths, twice getting caught stealing by Cards rookie catcher Carson Kelly. He'd only been caught twice in 16 attempts coming into the night. When healthy, the 29-year-old is hitting .303/.347/.502 with five homers, 18 RBI, 40 runs scored and 14 steals in 56 games this year.

However, he has picked up the pace over the past week and a half, going 14-for-34 (.412) with five doubles, two triples, two homers and six RBI over the past nine outings.

A.J. Pollock (groin, quad) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Tuesday.

Pollock will serve as Triple-A Reno's designated hitter on Sunday and it sounds like it might be his final rehab game. The talented outfielder originally went on the disabled list in mid-May with a groin injury and then had a setback a couple weeks ago when his quad tightened up on him. Pollock is feeling good now, though, and it looks like he'll probably be back for the big series versus the Dodgers as long as he can avoid another setback.
Jul 2 - 2:05 PM

A.J. Pollock (groin, quad) went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo homers in his latest minor league rehab game with Triple-A Reno on Friday.

The dynamic center fielder originally landed on the disabled list May 15 with a right groin strain. He should be ready sometime early next week.
Jun 29 - 1:49 PM

A.J. Pollock (groin, quad) will play his next rehab game with Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.

Jun 26 - 1:30 PM

A.J. Pollock (groin, quad) will resume his rehab assignment with Triple-A Reno on Sunday.

He hasn't played since tweaking his quad on Monday. According to Steve Gilbert of, the Diamondbacks are looking to get Pollock 10 at-bats before bringing him up to the big leagues. Barring another setback, Pollock should be back in Arizona by mid-week.
Jun 24 - 9:43 PM

A.J. Pollock (groin, quad) will be held out of action at Triple-A Reno for at least the next three days.

Pollock, who's been on the disabled list since May 15 with a right groin strain, experienced tightness in his right quad Monday while playing in his second minor league rehab game. It doesn't sound like a major setback, but it will obviously delay his return a little bit. Pollock was batting .299/.337/.455 with two home runs and 11 stolen bases through 37 games this season for Arizona.
