Diamondbacks LF David Peralta sits on Tuesday against a lefty
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/26/15) With the Diamondbacks facing a left-hander on Tuesday, outfielder David Peralta is out of the lineup against the Cardinals. Peralta, who had started three straight games, has just two hits in 17 at-bats against lefties this season.
Ender Inciarte will move over to left field, with A.J. Pollock entering the lineup and playing center field while batting fourth.
Diamondbacks CF A.J. Pollock set to sit in St. Louis
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/25/15) Diamondbacks center fielder A.J. Pollock is red-hot, but he will cool his heels on the bench Monday in St. Louis. He is out of the lineup.
Pollock is batting .500 (12-for-24) with eight runs scored in his last six games.
Diamondbacks getting aggressive on the basepaths
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/24/15) The Diamondbacks have been speed demons so far this season. Arizona entered Saturday's game tied for second in the National League with 40 stolen bases, led by A.J. Pollock with 10 and Paul Goldschmidt with eight.
"What we've really tried to do the whole year is if there's an opportunity there, be aggressive with it," Goldschmidt said to MLB.com. "It's just another way we can get a guy into scoring position and make it a little bit easier on offense to score."
Pollock is tied for fourth in the NL with his stolen bases and 12 different players have recorded at least one stolen base.
"If it is a good spot and it's a good opportunity to take one, we'll try to take it," Pollock said. "We've got a pretty dynamic team and overall our team speed is pretty good. You've got a couple guys that kind of fly under the radar with speed and they can sneak one here and there."
Diamondbacks' A.J. Pollock continues hot hitting roll
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/24/15) Diamondbacks center fielder A.J. Pollock went 1 for 4 in Arizona's 9-6 loss on Saturday. It was Pollock's first "bad game" in his last five. Entering Saturday, Pollock was 10 for 16 in the last four, something he can't explain, according to MLB.com.
"Just clicking, I don't know what's going on," Pollock said. "It's just baseball, you feel like you've got something, you're not getting hits, then you do the same thing and you're getting hits. It's just how the game is."
Manager Chip Hale noted his approach change to his recent success.
"He's really turned it up in just the mental part of the game, of picking the pitches that he wants to go after, whether it's the first pitch or a pitch with two strikes," Hale said. "Instead of trying to guess or wait, he's looking for a good pitch to hit out over the plate and using the whole field."
Pollock is now hitting .308 with 16 RBI in 156 at-bats this season.
Surging A.J. Pollock to bat leadoff for Diamondbacks against Cubs
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(5/23/15) A.J. Pollock is on fire, and now he's batting leadoff for the Diamondbacks' game against the Cubs on Saturday.
Pollock, who went 4 for 6 with a double and a triple in his team's 5-4 win on Friday, will look to keep his hot-streak alive from the top spot in the lineup.
Pollock has been the lead-off hitter 11 times this season, hitting .289/.360/.444 with two home runs and six RBI.
|2014 summary: In his third season, Pollock batted a career-high .302 while upping both his power and speed games. In an injury-shortened campaign that limited him to 75 games, A.J. Pollock hit seven homers, 19 doubles and six triples while nabbing 14 bases in 17 tries. Even though he missed more than half the season, Pollock finished as the 82nd-ranked outfielder in standard Rotisserie value, and he ranked 23rd in Fantasy points per game (2.91). However, after a three-month absence resulting from his right hand being broken by a Johnny Cueto pitch, Pollock's power production lagged.|
Playing time status: With his solid play, both at the plate and in center field, Pollock likely cemented his place as an everyday player for the Diamondbacks in 2015. Ender Inciarte played well in Pollock's absence, but he should not cut into Pollock's playing time much during the coming season.
2015 outlook: Even 15-plus home run power is not a given for Pollock, but he has enough batting average and stolen base potential to be worth drafting with a mid-round pick in standard mixed Roto leagues. However, Pollock is more of a late-round flier in three-outfielder points leagues.
