Diamondbacks | A.J. Pollock wants to play in 2016

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 14:54:27 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock (elbow) has been hitting off a tee and throwing from 75 feet, and he believes he will return and play again this season.

"I didn't have a thought that I wasn't going to play this year," Pollock said. "I'm going to play, and when I'm out there, it's going to be like I feel like I could've been out there a month earlier, which is a good thing. I'm going to get asked the question, 'Do you think it's too early?' and it's not going to be. It's going to be really, really easy. When I'm out there, I'm going to be ready to go."

Fantasy Tip: View Pollock as a desperation stash in all one-year leagues. However, he's a ripe stash for any keeper/dynasty owners who are already looking ahead to 2017. Pollock is coming off a monster five-category season, after all. Stay tuned for updates, but your expectations should be kept in check.

Diamondbacks | A.J. Pollock aiming for return

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 05:14:19 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock (elbow) told reporters he was making "ridiculously good" progress in his rehab from a fractured left elbow, and that he wanted to play this season.

Fantasy Tip: Pollock believes he could see action very late in the year, but don't be surprised, given the team's 38-53 record, if the Diamondbacks tell Pollock to cool it and prepare for 2017. Pollock's belief is based on his bone-to-bone healing stats, but the only thing that matters to you is can he play. If you can afford to pick Pollock up and stash him, he may be worth the risk.

Diamondbacks | A.J. Pollock thinks he can return

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 09:08:13 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock (elbow) has not ruled out playing again this season after he fractured his right elbow during a headfirst slide in an April 1 exhibition game. He was told by doctors he couldn't resume baseball activities for at least three months after he had surgery to insert a plate on the tip of his elbow. Pollock said he's on track to resume activities July 1.

Fantasy Tip: When healthy, Pollock is a five-category contributor for fantasy owners. So even though it's not a lock that he returns this year, he should remain stashed in all leagues just in case. Owners that took Pollock in the late first round or early second round of drafts this year have had to scramble for suitable replacements.

Diamondbacks | A.J. Pollock out minimum of three months

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 16:37:37 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock (elbow) will miss a minimum of three months and could miss the rest of the season, according to his surgeon, Dr. Don Sheridan. Pollock's injury was related to a 2010 break to the same elbow. X-rays taken in spring training revealed a broken screw and poor healing following the previous surgery, although the team said MRIs and X-rays revealed no long-term issues.

In the latest surgery, Pollock had a plate screwed onto the broken elbow and parts of bone tissue from his hip placed into the injury to help healing. He will undergo electric stimulation, and Sheridan said they "pulled out all the stops" to hope the bone heals correctly this time. "He freshly broke through an area of the bone that had been broken before but never healed," Sheridan said.

Fantasy Tip: If you own Pollock, you have to ride it out. However, it doesn't sound promising that he'll make a substantial contribution to your fantasy team this year. Socrates Brito and Chris Owings are splitting time in center, with the former holding more traditional league value due to his speed.

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 13:45:14 -0700

Chris Owings and Socrates Brito will split time in center field in the meantime, with Brito being slightly more attractive for his power in deep mixed leagues.

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 15:02:20 -0700

Chris Owings and Socrates Brito are expected to split time in center field with Pollock out. Owings is a work in progress and is tempting in deeper mixed leagues for his speed, while Brito has the power upside and is likely more attractive in all fantasy formats.
