Manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday that Pollock (hamstring) is expected to play in simulated games this weekend before reporting to the Dodgers' spring training facility to play in rehab games, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports. The 33-year-old has apparently progressed well in his recovery since landing on the injured list Sept. 5 with a strained right hamstring. Pollock could return from the injured list late next week if all goes well during the simulated games and subsequent work at the spring training complex.
The Dodgers are hopeful Pollock (hamstring) will be cleared to begin a rehab assignment within the next 4-to-5 days, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Pollock is still managing a right hamstring strain suffered at the beginning of the month. He won't travel with the team to Cincinnati and remains without a firm timetable for a return.
Pollock (hamstring) participated in agility drills in the outfield ahead of Saturday's game against the Padres, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Pollock landed on the 10-day injured list with a right hamstring strain Sept. 5 and doesn't yet have a timetable to return. However, the team will likely have a better idea of the outfielder's status based on how he feels following Saturday's on-field work.
Pollock was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right hamstring strain Sunday. Manager Dave Roberts revealed after Saturday's game that Pollock would be sidelined 2-3 weeks due to a Grade 2 hamstring strain, so his move to the injured list was expected. Chris Taylor will serve as the primary left fielder in his absence, while Billy McKinney may see increased playing time as a depth option.
Pollock was diagnosed with a Grade 2 hamstring strain following Saturday's game against the Giants, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. Pollock was removed from Saturday's game in the top of the first inning, and manager Dave Roberts said after the game that the outfielder is expected to miss at least 2-3 weeks. Chris Taylor is in line to serve as the primary left fielder while Pollock is sidelined, while Billy McKinney should see additional at-bats in a depth role.
