AJ Pollock: Not in lineup Tuesday

16 May 2018

Pollock (thumb) is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Brewers, Richard Morin of The Arizona Republic reports.

Pollock injured his thumb in the ninth inning of Arizona's game Monday against the Brewers when he dove on a failed attempt to catch a line drive hit by Tyler Saladino.

Pollock, 30, has been among the best players in baseball this season, batting.293/.349/.620 with 11 home runs, 33 RBI, 23 runs scored, and nine stolen bases in 166 plate appearances.

The D-backs have opened 2018 with a 24-17 record.

If Pollock is forced to miss some time, veteran Jarrod Dyson is the top candidate to move to center field with Chris Owings and Steven Souza potentially getting additional playing time as well.
