by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock is out of the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Giants, with Mark Trumbo starting in right field, the team announced. 

Pollock, who has started nine of the team's first 11 games, will get the day off as the team faces righty Chris Heston. Pollock is hitting well at the plate to begin the year, posting a .333/.422/.487 slash line in 45 plate appearances.

The Diamondbacks are currently the underdogs (+145) against the Giants.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Diamondbacks center fielder A.J. Pollock had his first four-hit game of the season to lead the Diamondbacks to a 9-0 win over the Giants on Friday.

Pollock went 4 for 5 with one walk and a strikeout. His lone RBI came in the top of the ninth inning when he drove in pitcher Josh Collmenter on a double. Pollock was able to raise his batting average from .265 to .333.


D-Backs' A.J. Pollock uncorks first HR of season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Diamondbacks center fielder A.J. Pollock launched his first home run of the season during Thursday's extra-inning win over the Giants.

Pollock took Santiago Casilla deep for a two-out solo home run in the 10th inning. The Giants scored on an infield single in the bottom of the frame to extend the game before Aaron Hill doubled in two runs in the 12th to secure a 7-6 victory.

Pollock added a double and finished 2 for 6 with two runs scored and an RBI. He is hitting .265/.359/.412 this season.


Diamondbacks' Hale: Ender Inciarte set to play regularly


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Thursday that left fielder Ender Inciarte will play almost every day after jumping out to a hot start, MLB.com reports.

"He's going to be in there most every day now," Hale said. "The way he's played, he's forced his way in there."

Inciarte is set to fill the leadoff spot moving forward, with former leadoff man A.J. Pollock sliding down to the No. 2 spot.

"I think Pollock in the two-hole is dynamic," Hale said. "He's got a little more power and Ender has done a better job of getting on base at this point so far."

Hale said he's still try to find some playing time for David Peralta, but with Inciarte entering play Thursday hitting .406/.441/.594 in 32 at-bats, the manager has had trouble finding a good time to take him out of the lineup.


D-Backs move Ender Inciarte to leadoff spot, A.J. Pollock at No. 2 hole


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"The one guy who has pushed me to play him every day is Inciarte. He has been terrific, and today I'll lead him off," Hale told MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM Satellite Radio.

Inciarte moving to the leadoff spot bumps A.J. Pollock to the No. 2 hole. Inciarte is hitting .393 (11 for 28) with three doubles, a triple, one walk and six RBI in eight games.


Diamondbacks' A.J. Pollock drives in three runs Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Diamondbacks center fielder A.J. Pollock went 1 for 5 with a three-run double in his team's 7-4 loss to the Dodgers Sunday.

The Diamondbacks entered the bottom of the ninth down 7-0, but the team was able to push a run across and leave the bases loaded for Pollock, who lined a pitch to right to clear the bases and quadruple his RBI total on the season (he entered play with just one RBI).

Pollock, whose best game came during a 3-for-3 performance Saturday, is 6 for 21 in six games and has been caught stealing once.


Diamondbacks' Peralta batting cleanup Tuesday, Pollock benched


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2015) Diamondbacks outfielder David Peralta is starting in left field and batting cleanup in Tuesday's matchup with the Giants.

Peralta wasn't in the lineup on Opening Day against lefty Madison Bumgarner but did eventually see action, striking out in a pinch-hit appearance. Ender Inciarte, who started in left field and batted second Monday, will move to center field and lead off for the Diamondbacks against righty Ryan Vogelsong.

A.J. Pollock, who led off and played center field Monday, is not in Tuesday's starting lineup.

The game is expected to be close, as the Diamondbacks and Giants both have the same odds (-105).

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2015) Diamondbacks center fielder A.J. Pollock hit three singles in three at-bats during Monday's 3-3 tie against the White Sox.

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


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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

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 Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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.
