Dodgers' A.J. Pollock: Not yet in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that Pollock hasn't reported to camp yet, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Roberts did not provide a reason for Pollock's absence, but he said that he expects him to report soon. However, it's unclear when the 32-year-old will arrive in camp. Pollock appeared in just 86 games for the Dodgers last season while battling various injuries, but he could be one of the team's top options to serve as designated hitter in 2020 if he can remain healthy.

Dodgers' A.J. Pollock: Working to improve defense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pollock worked on improving his running efficiency during the offseason in order to shore up his defense, Cary Osborne of Dodger Insider reports.

Pollock gathered with a sprint group over the winter to work on his speed in recognition of his declining range. Though Pollock won a Gold Glove in 2015, his defensive metrics have slipped in subsequent campaigns, and he posted a negative-5.2 Def as a center fielder last season -- sixth worst among players who logged at least 100 innings at the position. Pollock has since moved to left field, where he is slated to platoon with Joc Pederson in 2020, but that hasn't changed his perspective on the importance of being a good defender. "You want to be relevant, you want to be current," Pollock stated. "You don't want to be the guy that won a Gold Glove four years ago and now can't play outfield anymore. Yeah, that will be a goal of mine to play elite defense."

Dodgers' A.J. Pollock: Expected to platoon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts said Pollock is expected to share time in left field with Joc Pederson, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

As it stands following the Dodgers' acquisition of Mookie Betts, Pollock is on track to handle the short side of a platoon alongside the lefty hitting Pederson, though he could also see time elsewhere in the outfield spelling the likes of Betts and Cody Bellinger. Across an injury-riddled 2019 campaign, Pollock hit .266/.327/.468 with 15 home runs and five stolen bases in 88 games.

Dodgers' A.J. Pollock: Hits 10th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pollock went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored in the Dodgers' 9-0 win over the Padres on Tuesday.

The veteran cranked long ball No. 10 on the season, taking advantage of a matchup against infielder Ty France with the game out of reach with a ninth-inning solo shot. It's been another injury-shortened season for Pollock, but he's hitting .345 in August, so it seems like his bat is coming to life, leaving him in good position to remain a solid contributor through the rest of the season provided he can stay on the field.
