Pollock (groin) told manager Chip Hale after running Friday that he thought he was "going to feel much better," the Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hale described Pollock as being "a little down" during the conversation. While the team has not formally closed the door on Pollock playing again during the final week, Hale was clear that the team will not let Pollock run the bases or get into a game until he can run at full speed without pain. There are just six games remaining.

Pollock (groin) is out of the lineup Monday against the Nationals, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

There was speculation that Pollock could return as early as Monday, but it seems that the outfielder's groin is not back to 100 percent. There's still a chance that the 28-year-old could get back into action before the season's over, but he'll wait at least a day longer to return, ceding Monday's start in center field to Mitch Haniger.

Manager Chip Hale said Saturday that Pollock (groin) could return during the team's second-to-last series, Nick Piecoro of Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

A groin strain suffered in his 12th game back from a broken elbow put Pollock on the shelf again earlier this month. However, he is said to be ahead of schedule in his recovery and ready to ramp up his activity over the next week. If all goes well, he could return at some point during the Sept. 26-29 series Washington, and Pollock is the type of player that can make a difference even with a very small window of opportunity.

Pollock (groin) will take batting practice Monday and is ahead of schedule according to Diamondbacks trainers, Jack Magruder of FanRag Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Diamondbacks still expect Pollock to return this season, and this news is a good sign that it isn't just unwarranted optimism. Pollock had four steals and a .716 OPS in 12 games before the injury sent him to the bench again, but he was showing some of the speed and power that made him a breakout star in 2015.

Pollock (groin strain) won't be able to start his rehab for a week, but the Diamondbacks are holding out hope that he will be able to return before the end of the season, MLB.com's Steve Gilbert reports.

EDGE Analysis

He'll need to let the injury cool down before he begins to rehab it, and at that point there will only be two weeks left in the season, so it's certainly possible that he won't return in 2016. In the meantime, Socrates Brito figures to see a good chunk of the playing time in center field.

Pollock (groin) is out of the lineup Saturday against the Giants, the Arizona Republic's Nick Piecoro reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Diamondbacks have not updated Pollock's status after he left Friday's game with a strained groin, but it seems likely that he will miss more than just one game with the injury. He was removed in the second inning Friday after pulling his groin rounding first base, and he hopped on the spot, not letting his left foot touch the ground as he winced in pain. Socrates Brito will start in center field and bat seventh Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Kyle Jensen replaced Pollock in center field after his exit. Pollock's only at-bat for the evening resulted in a fly out, and he appeared to pull up as he was on the base path. The severity of the injury is not known at this time, rendering him day-to-day going forward.

Pollock hit his second home run, a solo shot, in a 1-for-4 game Tuesday against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Pollock has a pair of home runs and is hitting .278/.350/.444 with four stolen bases in 10 games back from the disabled list. It isn't quite the marvelous five-tool performance he showed in 2015, but Pollock doesn't look like he has lost much since suffering a brutal elbow injury in spring training.

Pollock is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Pollock has been highly impressive since returning from the DL, going 9-for-20 with four steals and a home run over his last five games. After seven straight starts, however, he'll take a seat for a regular maintenance day, while Socrates Brito gets the call in center field.
