A.J. Pollock homers, drives in four runs Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/13/2014) Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock led the offense Friday, going 3 for 4 with a home run and four RBI in his team's 6-5 loss to the Padres.

Pollock singled home the first run of the game in the first inning, but the Padres scored six unanswered runs through the top of the fifth. After the team added a run in the bottom of the fifth, Pollock smashed a three-run home run to bring the score to within one, which is where it would settle. It was his first home run since returning from his extended injury absence, but he's nonetheless performed well this month, going 10 for 27 with three stolen bases in eight games.

Injured Diamondbacks outfielders slow to recover


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) The Diamondbacks have received bad news about two injured outfielders. Cody Ross, who has been sidelined with a calf strain for three weeks, was unable to take his run around the bases this weekend because his leg wasn't up to it. A.J. Pollock, meanwhile, is coming along slowly in his recovery from a fractured hand.

Pollock, who broke his hand on May 31, was hit on the same hand exactly two months later during a rehab assignment.

"When he got hit the second time, there's a lot of soreness there," Gibson told azcentral.com. "We're going to give him a couple of days off and try to get some of the inflammation out of there. It feels like it's a little too sore to maybe proceed right now."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

A.J. Pollock begins rehab assignment


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock began his minor-league rehab assignment for the team's rookie-league affiliate in Arizona Thursday, as he works his way back from a broken right hand.

Pollock went hitless in two trips to the plate, though he was able to shake off a hit-by-pitch after popping up in his first at-bat. Pollock has not played since May 31 due to the injury, and could need a fairly extensive rehab assignment before he can return to the majors.


A.J. Pollock to take live batting practice Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Arizona might not be active at trade deadline


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) It seems unlikely the Diamondbacks will trade shortstop Chris Owings, outfielder A.J. Pollock, catcher Miguel Montero and pitcher Wade Miley by the July 31 trade deadline, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Miley is drawing substantial interest, but general manager Kevin Towers said trading the left-handed starter "doesn't make a whole lot of sense since we're trying to acquire starting pitchers."

Officials with other teams also told Heyman that the Diamondbacks don't seem eager to trade veteran Martin Prado or reliever Brad Ziegler. One general manager interested in trading for Prado believes the Diamondbacks won't deal him because of his leadership and work ethic.

A.J. Pollock hit on hand by pitch, removed from Saturday's game


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2014) Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock was removed from Saturday's game against the Reds after being hit on the right hand by a pitch.

Pollock was 1 for 3 with a double before exiting. He's been fantastic over the last week and particularly his previous three games heading into Saturday's action, going 8 for 12 with five doubles and one triple while scoring seven runs and stealing two bases. The team will evaluate him further before making a determination on his availability for Sunday's game.


Luck driving A.J. Pollock's strong start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2014) Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock has impressed this year, but luck has played a huge factor in his success.

Aside from an increased slugging percentage, very little about Pollock's overall approach has changed. He's striking out slightly more, making contact at similar rates and is showing similar batted ball rates. The biggest reason behind his recent surge is likely a .359 BABIP. 

Though that's likely to fall, Pollock has shown a few positive traits. He's been an efficient base-stealer, racking up seven steals in eight attempts. He's also showing more pop this year. His fly ball rate is slightly up, so there's a chance he could add double-digit home runs for the first time in his career. While the average is sure to drop, Pollock could still provide decent power/speed numbers. He's not this good, but he's useful in deeper leagues.


A.J. Pollock smacks walkoff two-run home run


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2014) Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock showed some late-game heroics, smacking a walkoff home run to lead his team past the Padres on Monday.

Pollock took Kevin Quackenbush deep for a two-run shot with two outs in the ninth. He added two singled and finished 3 for 5 with two runs scored and two RBI in a 7-5 victory. He has four three-hit games this season, including two over his last eight games played. He is hitting .296 with six homers and 13 RBI in 159 at-bats.

A.J. Pollock proving his worth with the bat


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/19/2014) The Diamondbacks already knew they had a premium defender in A.J. Pollock. The question was whether he'd hit enough to play every day.

It's not much of a question anymore. In fact, his performance in 11 games since returning from a groin injury has even Fantasy owners taking notice. During that stretch, he's hit .450 (18 for 40) with three doubles, two triples, two home runs and six stolen bases.

The most encouraging development is the stolen bases. He had none before then, and his 12 last year hardly moved the needle. But judging from his minor-league track record, speed is a legitimate part of his skill set. He had 21 steals in 106 games in 2012 and 36 in 133 games in 2011.

Contact hitting is also a legitimate part of his skill set. It went under the radar last year, but he's far from a swing-at-anything type, never striking out more than 86 times in either a major- or minor-league season. And if he's making that much contact with even gap power, a high batting average isn't so far-fetched.

Let's say Pollock hits .285 with 10 homers, 30 doubles and 25 steals. That's enough to make him a starter in most all formats, and of course, he's on pace for well more than that now.


A.J. Pollock collects four hits Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2014) Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock collected four hits Saturday against the Dodgers.

A.J. Pollock knocks fourth home run Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2014) Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock went 2 for 4 with a two-run home run in his team's 6-5 loss to the Nationals Monday.

Pollock gave his team a lead with the two-run shot in the sixth inning, but they wound up giving it back to the Nationals in the ninth. He has a six-game hit streak as well as two hits in each of his last three games. Pollock has hit .286/.339/.500 with four home runs, nine RBI and five stolen bases.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
