Pollock went 4 for 5 on Friday, finishing a triple shy of the cycle. He launched his 13th home run of the season in the first inning, giving the D-Backs an early 1-0 lead. He also scored three times and stole two bases, as he once again filled up the box score.

Pollock has hit safely in 12 of his last 13 games, batting .439 with two home runs and seven RBI over that stretch.

D-Backs' Hale on outfield situation: 'They all deserve to play'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/17/2015) With Ender Inciarte slated to return from the disabled list, Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale is once again faced with a playing time conundrum in the outfield.

However, filling out the lineup card has gotten a little harder for Hale, as David Peralta is proving he is no longer a liability against left-handed pitchers and has earned a spot in the starting lineup. 

“Right/left could determine some things, but David has proven, in his time now with Ender got, that he handles lefties pretty well,” Hale said, per The Arizona Republic. “If there’s a matchup that has great history, then that guy will definitely be in the lineup. But if there’s not much history, we’ll just go with the hot hand or who needs a rest the most.”

Hale mentioned he wants to be careful with right fielder Yasmany Tomas since the regular season in Cuba isn't as long as the MLB season, and he doesn't want the rookie to wear down.

Inciarte's return likely means more days off for center fielder A.J. Pollock, who started 23 of 24 games with Inciarte on the disabled list.

“They all deserve to play ,” Hale said. “I’m sure every day someone will be disappointed they’re not in there, but in the end they’ll all be better for it. They’ll all get rest.”
