  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: On base four times in twin bill

    Pollock went 3-for-5 with a walk, a double, a run scored and an RBI across both games of Tuesday's doubleheader split against the Royals.

    The White Sox only managed 12 hits and four runs between the two contests, making Pollock's production that much more impressive. The veteran outfielder has had trouble finding a rhythm in Chicago but has begun to show signs of life at the plate, batting .296 (8-for-27) over his last eight games with two doubles, a homer, four runs and five RBI.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Not starting Monday

    Pollock will be on the bench Monday against the Royals.

    The veteran outfielder hits the bench after starting six straight games in left field. He hasn't done much at the plate thus far this season, hitting .192/.221/.274 in 20 games. Andrew Vaughn will get the nod in left in his absence.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Productive against Yankees

    Pollock went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, an RBI and two runs scored Thursday against the Yankees.

    Pollock got the White Sox on the board with an RBI double in the second inning and ultimately came around to score. He still has just a .548 OPS on the season, but Pollock has tallied six RBI and five runs scored across his last 10 starts. There is hope for further improvement, as Pollock is striking out at a 21.2 percent clip -- in line with his career baseline -- and will continue to get regular playing time.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Slugs first homer

    Pollock went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run Monday against the Guardians.

    Pollock slugged his first homer of the season in the eighth inning to put the White Sox up 8-2. He has only two additional extra-base hits on the campaign, both of which were doubles. Pollock remains a regular in the White Sox's lineup, but he has a dreadful .196/.220/.286 line across 59 plate appearances.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Out Sunday

    Pollock is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

    After going 5-for-29 at the plate while starting in each of Chicago's last seven games, Pollock will receive a maintenance day in the series finale in Boston. With Adam Engel also sitting Sunday, the White Sox will go with Gavin Sheets and Leury Garcia as their starters at the corner-outfield spots.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Swipes first bag

    Pollock went 1-for-4 with a walk, a run scored and a stolen base Friday against Boston.

    Pollock tallied his lone hit ofthe game in the third inning, and he came around to score on a home run by Luis Robert. Pollock drew a leadoff walk six frames later and proceeded to steal second base -- his first swipe of the season. Pollock is hitting an ugly .196/.224/.239 across 49 plate appearances to begin the campaign, though he has collected at least one hit in four of his last six starts.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Absent from Saturday's lineup

    Pollock is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Twins.

    Pollock played all nine innings in Friday's game after missing nearly two weeks with a hamstring injury, so he is seemingly being held out Saturday for maintenance purposes. Adam Engel will get the start in center field Saturday, and Andrew Vaughn will get the nod in right field

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Walks in return

    Pollock (hamstring) went 0-for-3 with a walk in a 2-1 loss Friday in Minnesota.

    Pollock started in center field and batted sixth in his return to the lineup after missing nearly two weeks with a hamstring strain. The 34-year-old popped out in the first, struck out in his next two plate appearances and walked in the ninth. He appeared in just two games prior to his stint on the injured list. Health has always been an issue for the 2015 All-Star, as he hasn't played more than 117 games in a year since that season.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Activated from injured list

    Pollock (hamstring) was activated from the injured list Friday.

    Pollock has battled more than his fair share of injuries over the course of his career and made it just two games into his White Sox's tenure before his first absence. He'll wind up missing less than two weeks and should return to a regular role in right field. Matt Foster was placed on the bereavement list to clear a roster spot.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Slated to join team in Minneapolis

    Pollock (hamstring) will join the White Sox in Minneapolis ahead of their weekend series against the Twins, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Manager Tony La Russa recently said that there's a "good chance" Pollock would be reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Friday's series opener. While La Russa didn't officially confirm Thursday that Pollock will be activated prior to Friday's matchup, the 34-year-old should be back on the field in the coming days following a relatively brief stint on the injured list.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Should be back Friday

    White Sox manager Tony La Russa said there's a "good chance" Pollock (hamstring) returns from the 10-day injured list ahead of Friday's series opener in Minnesota, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Though Pollock has yet to head out on a minor-league rehab assignment after he was placed on the IL on April 12, the White Sox are apparently satisfied with how his strained right hamstring has responded to workouts at the organization's spring facility in Arizona. Pollock notably took simulated at-bats Tuesday against rehabbing White Sox starter Lucas Giolito (abdomen), and both injured players could be ready to rejoin the big club at some point this weekend. Unless the White Sox reverse course and send Pollock out to a minor-league affiliate for one or two games, he'll likely continue to ramp up his workouts over the next two days before linking up with the team in Minnesota.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Nearing rehab assignment

    Manager Tony La Russa said Saturday that Pollock (hamstring) is "around 80-85 percent," James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Pollock has been sidelined by a hamstring injury for a week, but the White Sox have remained optimistic that the outfielder will be able to return following a minimal stay on the injured list. He's expected to head to Triple-A Charlotte to make some rehab appearances soon, and it appears likely that he'll be cleared to rejoin the major-league club sometime next week.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Minimum stay possible

    Pollock (hamstring) has a chance to spend only 10 or 11 days on the injured list, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    The veteran outfielder doesn't have a strong health track record and lasted just two games with his new team before hitting the injured list with a hamstring strain. The White Sox believe the issue to be fairly minor, but Pollock is currently away from the team for the birth of his child, so the team hasn't been able to run further tests.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Strained hammy forces IL trip

    The White Sox placed Pollock on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a strained right hamstring.

    Pollock's advancing age and history of lower-body injuries always made a trip to the IL a likely outcome, but the White Sox opted to wait a few days after he tweaked the hamstring in Saturday's game in Detroit before officially deactivating him. In addition to Adam Engel -- who filled in for Pollock in right field in Sunday's 10-1 win over the Tigers -- Gavin Sheets and Leury Garcia are candidates to pick up more work in the corner outfield while the veteran is sidelined.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Absent from Sunday's lineup

    Pollock (hamstring) is not in Sunday's lineup against the Tigers.

    Pollock suffered a hamstring injury in Saturday's matchup while making a turn around first base. Pollock stated after the game that he doesn't believe the issue will hamper him in the long term, though he will get at least one additional day to rest. Adam Engel enters the lineup in right field and will hit seventh.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Not concerned about hamstring issue

    Pollock believes the hamstring injury that caused him to exit Saturday's game against the Tigers to be a short-term problem, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

    Pollock grabbed his hamstring after rounding first base on a single, but early indications are that he's avoided a serious injury. He's expected to spend some time on the paternity list starting Monday, so while the hamstring problem could potentially cause him to miss Sunday's game, he may be ready to go by the time he's back from paternity leave.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Exits with hamstring injury

    Pollock left Saturday's game against the Tigers with a right hamstring injury after hitting a single, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Pollock winced after making the turn around first base and appeared to grab his hamstring. The White Sox subsequently confirmed that it was right hamstring tightness that caused his exit. The veteran outfielder is already scheduled to miss time early next week while on the paternity list, so if this is merely a day-to-day problem it may not cost him many games that he wasn't already going to miss. Pollock doesn't have the strongest health track record, however, so a longer-term problem is definitely a possibility.
