2017 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: GRADE 1 GROIN STRAIN THE LATEST MALADY TO AFFLICT A.J. POLLOCK

Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock now officially deserves a seat on the All-Injury Team after he went right back on the DL Monday due to a Grade 1 groin strain.  If a sense of deja vu is being felt here, that is because a strained groin was the same injury that knocked Pollock out for a huge chunk of 2017 before a late summer return.  Injuries have dominated Pollock's young career and have undermined what in 2015 was looking at a star-in-the-making career as he put forth a terrific five category contribution season.  A fully healthy Pollock that year batted .315 with 20 home runs, 11 runs. 76 RBI, and 39 stolen bases for the D-Backs and that sent his draft stock soaring into the second round for 2016,  The rest as they say is history as Pollock hurt the groin and his season went for all but 12 games.  Despite the no-show year, Pollock earned back a bunch of cred for 2017 drafts and responded well by going into this weekend with a .299 average, 2 home runs, and 11 stolen bases.  Unfortunately the good times couldn't keep going and so now Pollock will be out of commission for a few weeks at least.  While a buy low could be warranted in this case, Pollock has shown he can't be depended on.
