Pollock is not starting Sunday against the Brewers. Pollock will sit for just the third time this season. He's been in a bit of a slump, hitting .182 over his last 11 games. Alex Verdugo will start in center field for the first time all year.
Pollock went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Reds. Pollock brought home the first runs of the afternoon for either team with his three-run shot off Sonny Gray during the sixth inning. The 31-year-old has endured a slow start to the season by slashing .243/.293/.365, though he does have two home runs and 14 RBI through 74 at-bats.
Pollock isn't listed in Tuesday's starting lineup against the Reds, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Pollock went 0-for-3 with a walk and an RBI in Monday's victory, but he'll head to the bench for the second game of the series. Chris Taylor draws the start in center field in Pollock's stead.
Pollock is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Cardinals. After starting the first 12 games of the season, going 14-for-51 (.275) with a homer and nine RBI in the process, Pollock will get what appears to be a well deserved breather. Chris Taylor is starting in center field and hitting seventh for the Dodgers in this one.
Pollock went 2-for-5 with a two-run double and two runs scored in Sunday's 8-7 win over the Diamondbacks. Pollock is off to a hot start with his new team, going 7-for-17 with three extra-base hits and six RBI in his first four games. If the 31-year-old can stay on the field, he could be set for a terrific 2019 season in a strong Dodgers lineup.
