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.
Oct 1 - 12:26 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.
Sep 21 - 1:20 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.

Pollock did his part with three of his team's four hits, but the rest of the offense took the night off. He has come alive lately, posting 12 RBI over his past six outings after managing 32 RBI through his first 97 outings.
Sep 20 - 1:28 AM

Sep 14 - 8:03 PM

A.J. Pollock went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer and an RBI double as the Diamondbacks topped the Rockies 8-2 on Wednesday.

It's the first three-hit game for Pollock since July 21. He's gone from leading off to batting second to mostly hitting sixth of late. Ideally, he'd work his way back up to the top of the order before the postseason starts.

A.J. Pollock finished 1-for-3 with a pair of walks and a run scored in Tuesday's road win against the Dodgers.

A.J. Pollock is not in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Thursday against the Mets.

Reymond Fuentes will start in center field and bat seventh versus Mets right-hander Rafael Montero. This appears to be a routine day of rest for Pollock, who went 0-for-2 with two walks on Wednesday night.
Aug 24 - 10:56 AM

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 is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Sunday.

Jul 30 - 11:41 AM

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.
Jul 27 - 11:51 PM

A.J. Pollock finished 3-for-5 with two doubles, a two-run home run, two runs scored and four RBI in Monday's win against the Braves.

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.
