Pollock (elbow) noted Saturday that he's progressing "ridiculously good" after recently receiving a CT scan, the Arizona Republic's Nick Piecoro reports. "With these types of injuries, I've done research in the past and for some reason you don't always see bone-to-bone healing," Pollock said. "They don't expect 100 percent bone-to-bone healing, but if you can get 50, 60 percent...but I'm way past that. I'm up in the 80s or 90s."

EDGE Analysis

Pollock's activity level would seem to support that he's coming along faster than expected, as he was spotted shagging fly balls Saturday and has already begun hitting off a tee and playing catch from 60 feet. He remains hopeful that he'll be able to return until the season is over, though at this point, that's not likely to happen until September.

Pollock (elbow) has been doing some light throwing with tennis balls and hopes to throw baseballs soon, Matthew Bain of the Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pollock started throwing with tennis balls in early July and continued up to the All-Star break. Now that the break is over, the centerfielder plans to ramp up his rehab. Pollock hasn't played a game all season after breaking his elbow in spring training, but said he would "for sure" return before the season is over. He makes for an intriguing DL stash option based on his immense skill set.

Diamondbacks president Derrick Hall said he thinks Pollock could return this season, Brendan Kennealy of arizonasports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Speaking on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM Thursday, Hall said Pollock is "doing great" and could be "back sooner than we thought or hoped." Pollock himself has said he'd like to resume baseball activities by July 1. If he does, there's a decent chance we see him in a big league uniform fairly soon. Pollock is a guy worth stashing on your DL.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
