Pollock (elbow) won't resume baseball activity for at least three months and Dr. Don Sheridan noted that he could miss the entire regular season, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Saturday's announcement further cements what most feared when Pollock went down late in spring training with a fractured right elbow. He'll be shut down from baseball activities through the All Star break according to Dr. Sheridan's timetable, but there's the distinct possibility that Pollock misses the entire regular season. The Diamondbacks will have to make do with a combination of Chris Owings and Socrates Brito in center field for the foreseeable future.

Pollock (elbow) underwent successful surgery Tuesday and is without a timetable to return.

Competitive Edge Analysis

A plate was placed on the tip of Pollock's right elbow during the procedure, and while the surgery was a success, the team is not ready to give an estimate as to when he could return to action. There is a chance that Pollock won't be able to return at all this season, although he has stated that his goal is to return at some point this year. Chris Owings and Socrates Brito are expected to share time in center field going forward.

Pollock (elbow) is expected to have his surgery Tuesday, Fanragsports.com's Jack Magruder reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

A firm timetable won't be available until after the surgery, at the earliest, but Pollock's season is certainly in jeopardy. The fracture was on the same growth plate as where Pollock suffered a fracture in March of 2010, which ended up costing him the entire season. For what it's worth, Pollock has vowed to return sooner this time around.

The fracture on Pollock's right elbow is on a growth plate, the same place where it was fractured in March of 2010, the Arizona Republic reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Pollock missed the entire season when he suffered that fracture in 2010. He vows to come back sooner this time, but that's just a vow - we'll see what the doctors say after his surgery.

Pollock (elbow) hopes to return at some point this season, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. "That's going to be my goal," said Pollock earlier Saturday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The rising star outfielder fractured his already-injured right elbow on a slide into home plate Friday and the injury will require surgery. There won't be any sort of definitive timetable on Pollock's potential return until after he undergoes the procedure on his elbow, so Pollock's comments Saturday should be taken with a grain of salt at this point. The Diamondbacks have begun giving Chris Owings a crash course in center field in hopes of potentially using him there as Pollock's replacement.

Pollock fractured his right elbow in Friday's spring game and will require surgery, MLB.com's Steve Gilbert reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Pollock was playing his first game in weeks Friday night, and he unfortunately suffered the injury while diving into home plate. It's not yet clear how long he will be sidelined, but he is facing an extended absence on the shelf. David Peralta will likely slide over to center field, and the Diamondbacks will have some decisions to make regarding the right field spot in the coming days.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Pollock was playing Friday for the first time since March 8, but his night was cut short after he injured his elbow diving into home plate in the third inning.

Pollock (elbow) will be in the lineup Friday and the Diamondbacks are confident that he'll be ready for Opening Day, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Pollock has been slowed by an elbow injury this spring, but the rising star is trending in the right direction heading into Opening Day. He'll draw back into the lineup Friday for the first time since March 8 and provided that he makes it through the game with no issues, he should be ready when the Diamondbacks open their season against the Rockies on Monday.

Pollock (elbow) said Tuesday that he's "ready to go" for Opening Day, Scott Bordow of the Arizona Republic reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

While the team will of course get the final say, Pollock's optimism is a good sign. He went 2-for-4 Tuesday against Zack Greinke in an intrasquad game and manager Chip Hale said he hoped Pollock will be ready for exhibition games Friday and Saturday against Kansas City. The team has said Pollock could begin the season on the DL if he doesn't get enough spring training at-bats.
