Pollock went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Monday in the Diamondbacks' 7-4 loss to the Dodgers. The outfielder's homer was his 20th of the season, matching the career-best total he notched in 2015. Pollock will have five more games to try and establish a new personal high in the category, but it's unlikely that he'll start or play all nine innings in any of those contests with the Diamondbacks eliminated from postseason contention and perhaps inclined to assess some of their younger outfielders.
Pollock went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Saturday against the Rockies. Pollock was the lone source of offense for the Diamondbacks on Saturday, blasting his 19th home run of the season in the fifth inning off Antonio Senzatela. It was his third home run in his past eight games, giving him the chance to reach 20 long balls for the first time since the 2015 season. It's a surprising power reemergence for Pollock, as he had tallied just four home runs since the All-Star break entering action on Sep. 13.
Pollock is not in Wednesday's lineup versus the Cubs. Pollock will receive a day off as manager Torey Lovullo elects to rest a majority of his regulars with Arizona's playoff hopes all but extinguished. Chris Owings will get the nod in center field for the series finale.
Pollock went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Diamondbacks' 5-1 loss to the Cubs on Monday. Pollock's ninth-inning blast, his 18th of the season, denied Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks a complete-game shutout. It was still another underwhelming showing from the sputtering Diamondbacks offense, which hasn't been helped by Pollock's downturn in productivity of late. Dating back to Aug. 26, Pollock is hitting just .182 with four extra-base hits and one stolen base over the team's 22 games.
Pollock went 3-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the Rockies. Pollock had a productive game all around, adding his 21st double and 11th stolen base in 13 tries -- though it was his first stolen-base attempt since July 20. The 30-year-old is having a good start to September, slashing .303/.375/.394 with a pair of extra-base hits and five runs scored since the start of the month.
