Diamondbacks | A.J. Pollock files for arbitration

Sun, 17 Jan 2016 07:31:45 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock has filed for salary arbitration. He is seeking a one-year deal worth $3.9 million while the team has countered with a $3.65 million offer.

Fantasy Tip: Pollock hit .315 with 20 home runs, 76 RBIs and 39 steals in 157 games last season and made the All-Star team for the first time in his career. He is expected to serve as Arizona's leadoff man in 2016, so his RBI totals are likely to decrease but he should still be viewed as a top-tier outfielder.

Diamondbacks | A.J. Pollock likely to lead off

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 14:43:10 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock is likely going to serve as the leadoff hitter next year, according to manager Chip Hale.

Fantasy Tip: That's because the D-backs shipped Ender Inciarte away in a trade Tuesday night. Pollock hit .302 with six home runs and 36 runs scored in 205 at-bats in the leadoff spot in 2015. It won't change his fantasy value drastically as a top-tier outfield option, but it will make his RBI totals suffer somewhat.

Diamondbacks | A.J. Pollock sticking around

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 10:05:37 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock will not be traded, according to general manager Dave Stewart. Stewart said the D-backs refused to put Pollock in their trade talks with the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: No doubt the Braves tried to pry Pollock away from Arizona, but the D-backs weren't having it, and for good reason. Pollock is one of the rare offensive players that can contribute in three fantasy baseball categories, and his awesome 2015 season will bump up his fantasy price considerably next year.

Diamondbacks | Arizona hesitant to deal A.J. Pollock

Mon, 07 Dec 2015 14:20:29 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock is highly regarded by the organization, and Arizona is hesitant to deal him.

Fantasy Tip: Pollock was a fantasy all star last season and returned 111 runs, 20 home runs, 76 RBI and 39 stolen bases with a .315/.367/.498 slash line. Given his 2015 numbers, it is no wonder Arizona wants to keep him around. However, it wouldn't be surprising to see him fail to duplicate his return from last season, so be hesitant to reach for him too early in drafts and count on those numbers. He checks out as a fringe No. 1 outfielder, though.

Diamondbacks | Arizona discussed Shelby Miller

Tue, 17 Nov 2015 15:16:35 -0800

The Arizona Diamondbacks had trade talks involving Atlanta Braves SP Shelby Miller, but the talks did not progress, according to sources. The Braves wanted a piece from Arizona's major-league core, and it may have been OF A.J. Pollock, who is under team control for three more years like Miller.

Fantasy Tip: Miller had a heck of a season for Atlanta in 2015, posting an ERA of just 3.02 in 205 1/3 innings, but he was incredibly unlucky and was 6-17 on the year. If any of your league mates dock Miller for his record in 2016 fantasy drafts, be sure to pounce on him to bolster your pitching staff. The best thing for Miller's fantasy value would be to stay in Atlanta.

Diamondbacks | A.J. Pollock resting Wednesday

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 15:05:25 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 9. OF Socrates Brito is starting in right field and hitting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston over OF Yasmany Tomas.

Fantasy Tip: Brito won't be available tonight on FantasyScore, so you can ignore him. This lineup move further shows how far Tomas ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has fallen in the outfield pecking order in Arizona. His lack of power and issues on defense have made him the odd-man out behind Pollock, Ender Inciarte and David Peralta on a regular basis.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas back in lineup

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 12:13:11 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas will bat seventh and play right field against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez Sunday, Aug. 30. OF Ender Inciarte, who played right field Saturday, Aug. 29, will play center field Sunday, with OF A.J. Pollock getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Pollock ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) from all fantasy lineups. Tomas ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is 1-for-12 over the past week and is only hitting .233 during the month of August, so FantasyScore owners should avoid using him Sunday. On the other hand, Inciarte ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is 10-for-25 over the past week and deserves consideration for daily lineups.
