A. J. Pollock CF ARI 2 Hrs
A.J. Pollock belted his first home run of the Cactus League season, powering the Diamondbacks to a 6-4 victory over the White Sox on Saturday.
Pollock finished the afternoon 2-for-3 with a pair of runs scored. He's now hitting a robust .409 (9-for-22) with three RBI in the early going. Slated for everyday at-bats atop the Diamondbacks lineup, his intriguing blend of power and speed make him an interesting flier in the middle rounds of mixed league drafts.

A.J. Pollock went 2-for-5 with a double and an RBI in Sunday's loss to the Giants.
Pollock's run-scoring single off Santiago Casilla tied the game at 2-2 in the eighth inning, but wound up being the extent of the D'Backs offense in the game. While he hasn't been a difference maker in fantasy leagues, the 25-year-old outfielder has proven that he can hold his own at this level, hitting .253/.300/.391 with seven homers, 34 RBI and 11 stolen bases.

A.J. Pollock went 3-for-4 with a homer, steal, three RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Phillies.
This was Pollock's first multi-hit game since August 17, his first extra-base hit since August 12, his first homer since June 29, his first multi-RBI contest since July 26 and his first steal since July 31. In other words: Congrats to owners that had the outfielder active today, but Pollock is not a reliable offensive threat going forward.

A.J. Pollock tripled, doubled, walked and scored three times against the Rockies on Friday.
Pollock had a rough June, so the Diamondbacks gave Tony Campana a couple of starts over him this week before going back to him tonight. He's been an adequate replacement for Adam Eaton overall, but his NL-only fantasy value will likely vanish once Eaton returns.

A.J. Pollock went 3-for-4 with an RBI from the leadoff spot in Friday's win.
Pollock was probably looking at a demotion right about now if Adam Eaton's rehab went as hoped. As is, he'll remain in the majors and continue to start against lefties for a few more weeks. He's 8-for-14 the last five days after breaking out of a 1-for-19 slump.

A.J. Pollock homered, doubled in two runs, walked and stole a base versus the Padres on Saturday.
Pollock, who was supposed to open the season in the minors until Arizona's outfield fell apart, has four homers, 10 doubles and five steals this season. Sure, he also has a 17/3 K/BB ratio, but he's been a heck of a fill-in so far.

A.J. Pollock homered twice, doubled and knocked in four runs in the Diamondbacks' 10-2 win over the Pirates on Wednesday.
Pollock was expected to open this season in Triple-A, but that was before both Adam Eaton and Cody Ross got hurt. As is, he's starting in center field most of the time, and today's game should help keep him in the lineup. He entered the day hitless since going 3-for-4 with a double in the Diamondbacks' opener on April 1.

A.J. Pollock (abdominal strain) returned to the Diamondbacks' lineup Thursday as the designated hitter.
Pollock still can't play the field, as he only feels pain in the abdominal area when he exerts himself throwing. It shouldn't be too much longer until he returns to the outfield.
