Top A.J. Pollock News

  • Mariners' AJ Pollock: One-year deal with Seattle

    Pollock signed a one-year, $7 million contract with the Mariners on Saturday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Pollock was below the league average as a hitter (92 wRC+) in 2022 for the first time since 2016. Even in a down year, he still crushed southpaws to the tune of a .286/.316/.619 slash line in 133 plate appearances. Pollock played double-digit games at each outfield spot last season, so his defensive versatility also appealed to Seattle. As things stand, Pollock should get close to everyday work to start his age-35 season, but he could transition to the short side of a platoon if he struggles again against righties.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Enters free agency

    Pollock declined his $13 million player option for 2023 and received a $5 million buyout to become a free agent Tuesday, Buster Olney of ESPN reports.

    Known as a solid offensive threat throughout his time in Arizona and Los Angeles, Pollock posted a career-worst .681 OPS upon joining the White Sox in 2022. Despite this, the 34-year-old outfielder was still able to crush left-handed pitching to the tune of a .935 OPS and 11 home runs in 133 plate appearances against southpaws. His dominance against lefties could prove to be valuable for teams in search of a rotational piece in the outfield.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Takes seat Wednesday

    Pollock isn't starting Wednesday against the Twins, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Pollock started the last four games and went 3-for-13 with a double, three runs, a stolen base, a walk and three strikeouts. He'll get a breather for Wednesday's season finale while Adam Engel starts in center field and bats eighth.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Scores twice, swipes bag

    Pollock went 2-for-3 with two runs scored and a steal in Monday's win over the Twins.

    The 34-year-old showed he still has some speed as he came across to score twice and recorded his third stolen base of the season. He singled and scored on a home run in his first at-bat and later singled, stole second and scored on a base hit. Pollock has been hitting well to close the season, batting .300 (15-for-50) with four home runs over his last 14 games. He is slashing .247/.294/.392 through 137 games this season.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Retreats to bench Friday

    Pollock is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Padres, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Pollock has gone 7-for-21 with a home run and two RBI over the past week, and he will get a day off Friday to rest. Mark Payton will step in to cover center field and bat second.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Tallies 14th homer

    Pollock went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk against the Tigers on Friday.

    Pollock took Eduardo Rodriguez deep for his 14th home run of the season. He's homered in three of his last five starts and also has eight RBI in his last six games. Despite the hot stretch, Pollock has only a .242/.289/.391 slash line across 494 plate appearances this season.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Homers in extra-innings loss

    Pollock went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Tuesday's 10-7 extra-innings loss to the Guardians.

    Pollock knocked in a run on a fielder's choice in the sixth inning, then added a two-run homer in the 11th. The White Sox's rally ended with that long ball, but Pollock's been solid by driving in six runs over the last three games. He's hitting .294 (20-for-68) with four homers in September and is up to a .246/.292/.391 slash line with 13 homers, 54 RBI, 56 runs scored and a pair of stolen bases through 126 contests overall.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Knocks in two in win

    Pollock went 1-for-4 with two RBI in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Tigers.

    Pollock knocked in Eloy Jimenez and Andrew Vaughn on a seventh-inning single that gave Chicago a short-lived lead. The hit in Saturday's contest was Pollock's first in five games. The veteran outfielder has been streaky with two separate five-game hit streaks this month, so this could be the start of another such run. Pollock is slashing .242/.290/.377 to go along with 11 homers and two steals on the season.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Scores three times in win

    Pollock went 4-for-5 with three runs scored and a steal in Saturday's 10-2 win over Oakland.

    Pollock scored on a Yasmani Grandal single in the second inning, an Andrew Vaughn double in the fourth and a Grandal sac fly in the eighth. He also swiped his second bag of the year in the contest. The veteran outfielder has been on fire this month, going hitless in just one of ten games. His slash line this month sits at .368/.429/.605. Pollock has raised his season batting average to .249, his highest mark since June 24.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Tallies 11th homer

    Pollock went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Monday against the Mariners.

    Pollock was in the starting lineup against a southpaw, which pushed Gavin Sheets to the bench. Pollock took advantage of the opportunity, taking Marco Gonzales yard in the second inning to tally his 11th homer of the season. He has maintained only a .678 OPS across 430 plate appearances for the campaign and will likely be relegated to short-side platoon duty when the rest of the White Sox's outfield is healthy.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Goes deep Wednesday

    Pollock went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Royals.

    Pollock got the White Sox on the board with his fourth-inning blast. The outfielder has swatted four of his nine homers this year in August, including two in his last five games. For the season, he's slashing .237/.285/.368 with 43 RBI, 45 runs scored and a stolen base through 108 contests. Pollock's hit atop the lineup at times in 2022, but Elvis Andrus was in that spot Wednesday, as the White Sox haven't settled on one player for that role.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Solo homer in loss

    Pollock went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Friday's 7-2 loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Pollock's solo shot came in the ninth inning, but it was too little and too late to help the White Sox. It was the outfielder's eighth homer of the year and his third this month. Pollock is now on a three-game hitting streak that includes two multi-hit games. He is slashing .239/.288/.368 on the year.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Goes to bench Thursday

    Pollock is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Orioles.

    Andrew Vaughn will set the table for the White Sox while Pollock retreats to the bench following a 12-game run as the team's leadoff man. Gavin Sheets, who has gone 10-for-18 at the dish over his past five games, will be rewarded for his hot hitting by picking up another start in the outfield at the expense of Pollock.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Heads to bench

    Pollock is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Guardians, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Pollock will get a well-deserved day off after he started and served as Chicago's leadoff man in each of the last nine games while going 9-for-35 (.257 average), two home runs and three walks. The White Sox will roll out an outfield of Andrew Vaughn, Luis Robert and Gavin Sheets from left to right while Pollock sits.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Swats sixth homer

    Pollock went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, an additional run and an additional RBI in Saturday's 6-4 win over Detroit.

    Pollock led off Chicago's half of the first inning with a single, and he eventually came around to score the game's first run. The veteran outfielder added a sacrifice fly in the second inning and provided an insurance run with his solo shot to left field in the eighth. Pollock's .240 season batting average is on pace for the lowest of his career, but he's been coming around at the plate lately, batting .350 (7-for-20) with four extra-base hits over his past five games.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Getting looks at leadoff spot

    Pollock went 1-for-3 with a walk and a double Friday against the Tigers.

    Pollock has hit atop the White Sox's order for four of the last six games since Tim Anderson (hand) went down. Luis Robert (wrist) is also dealing with an injury, and if he misses further time, Pollock should have a clear path to both playing time and the leadoff role. Even so, it's unclear how effective he will be with the opportunity, as he's slashing just .236/.287/.351 across 338 plate appearances on the season.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Remains on bench

    Pollock is not in the starting lineup Thursday versus the Royals.

    Pollock will sit for a second straight game Thursday as the White Sox wrap up their series with the Royals. Eloy Jimenez will slide over to left field while Seby Zavala enters the lineup at catcher and bats ninth.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Not starting Wednesday

    Pollock isn't starting Wednesday against the Royals.

    Pollock is getting a day off after he went 4-for-16 with two doubles, a run, an RBI, a walk and two strikeouts over the last four games. Andrew Vaughn will shift to left field while Gavin Sheets starts in right.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Poaching work from Sheets

    Pollock will start in left field and bat leadoff in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Royals.

    Even though the Royals are expected to bring right-hander Brady Singer to the hill for the front end of the twin bill, the lefty-hitting Gavin Sheets will give way in the outfield to the righty-hitting Pollock. At this stage, Pollock may have supplanted Sheets as a regular starter in the corner-outfield spot opposite Eloy Jimenez or Andrew Vaughn. Pollock finds himself in the lineup for the sixth time in seven games after getting on base at a .350 clip thus far in August.
