FANTASY BASEBALL STATUS REPORT: A.J. POLLOCK OUTFIELDER ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS

Perhaps the very first "BIG" injury to strike down a sizable name in 2016 fantasy baseball took place during spring training and before even one regular bat was swung or pitch was thrown.  In the case of Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock, a spring bout with a sore elbow turned into invasive surgery that at the time threatened to finish his season before it began.  This just weeks after Pollock graduated into on average a second round five tool fantasy baseball outfielder and of course coming off his monster breakout in 2015 when he hit .315 with 20 home runs, 39 steals, 111 runs scored, and 76 RBI.  The former first round pick also served as my very best SLEEPER pick of the season and it wasn't even close for second.  Be that as it may, Pollock attacked rehab as best he could and now with September beckoning and league titles getting set to be decided, he is getting close to returning to the majors where he offers some monstrous impact down the stretch.  Those Pollock owners who are still in the hunt for their league title will be getting a five tool outfielder 1 for nothing and already we can see what kind of impact could be in store as he is currently hiting .433 with 2 home runs during his minor league rehab stint.  Pollock should quickly go right back to the leadoff spot for the D-Backs and score a ton or runs and swipe a bunch of bases while hitting some home runs.  Yes it was a rough start but the finish should be good.
