|A.J. Pollock's slump spanning a few weeks|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/21/13) Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock tied a season-high with three hits Monday at Colorado. It was the fourth time this season he accomplished the feat.
Pollock, who scored twice Monday, entered the game mired in a 2-for-23 slump in his previous seven games. Since hitting his last home run May 4, Pollock is batting .204 (10 for 49) with two RBI, two walks, four runs, four doubles and 12 strikeouts in his last 14 games (12 starts).
|A.J. Pollock still not getting it right|

(5/8/13) Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock was expected to get caught in a roster squeeze, but he has mostly remained a part of the lineup in recent weeks. The 25-year-old started his fourth game in five days Tuesday, a sign the team feels comfortable riding his hot bat.
With Pollock remaining near the top of the most-viewed players list, what should Fantasy owners think of him?
The most important thing to note is that a big part of why Pollock is not quite starting every day is because of his platoon splits, as Pollock puts up a .926 on-base plus slugging percentage against left-handed pitchers, compared to a .668 mark against righties. All four of his home runs have come against southpaws, so he is carrying an empty .263 batting average against righties.
Pollock entered Tuesday hitting .316 in the month of May, but he has just two hits in three starts against righties. As long as he maintains such a drastic platoon split, Pollock is likely to remain little more than a Fantasy fill-in. I would pass on him for NL-only Fantasy formats until he shows the ability to produce against the larger side of the platoon.

(5/7/13) Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock produced two hits for the third time in five May games Monday against the Dodgers. Pollock is batting .316 (6 for 19) with one home run, two stolen bases, two doubles, four RBI and six runs in May.
Pollock is batting .286 with a .548 slugging percentage and .854 OPS in his last 22 games (19 starts). He has four home runs, 10 doubles and 12 RBI in that span.
|A.J. Pollock goes yard vs. Padres|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(5/5/13) Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock enjoyed a big night at the plate as he unleashed his fourth home run of the season Saturday against the Padres.
Pollock doubled in two runs in the second and took starter Clayton Richard deep for a solo home run in the fourth inning. He finished 2 for 4 with three runs scored and three RBI in an 8-1 victory.
Pollock has gone deep twice in his last six games. He is batting .368 (7 for 19) with two home runs and four RBI over that span. The 25-year-old is hitting .272/.292/.511 in 92 at-bats.

Name That Player: A.J. Pollock
A.J. Pollock leads the league in doubles, but can he provide a spark for Fantasy teams?
|A.J. Pollock popped his head up in the majors a few times in 2012, managing a .247 batting average in 81 at-bats. He hit two home runs and stole a base. A 2009 first-round draft pick, Pollock has a .303 career minor league batting average and has stolen 20 bases or more in each of the last two seasons. But Arizona is currently stacked at outfield and Pollock -- if he even makes the team -- will likely slot as a fifth outfielder. He has marginal value in a keeper league, but can be left undrafted in most formats. (Updated 12/12/12)|
