Diamondbacks have many suitors, but little interest in moving Pollock

If you claim that you knew who A.J. Pollock was at this time last year and you live outside of the Mojave Desert, you are probably lying. But if you don’t know him now, you must not follow baseball too closely. The MVP candidate and 2015 All-Star and Gold Glover broke onto the scene with a .315/.367/.498 line this year, astounding fans with 39 steals, 20 home runs, and great play...

Welcome home: Pollock walks off Padres

PHOENIX -- At first, A.J. Pollock claimed he was just trying to hit a gap. But after a few minutes of speaking to reporters, the remnants of a celebratory dirt bath on the floor around him, the Diamondbacks center fielder came clean. "I was trying to be a little greedy," Pollock said, grinning. "I wanted that thing to go over the fence." Whether or not he actually meant for it to...

Hottest hitter in baseball? Pollock just trusting the process

PHOENIX -- A.J. Pollock has reached the tip-of-the-cap stage of his career. It is a good sign, an indication of a player who has found his sweet spot and isn't being swayed by whimsy or the ill effects of the previous at-bat.

Pollock has gone from odd man out to D-backs' inner circle

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- This time a year ago, Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock was an outsider, a man without a roster spot. A lot can change in a year.

Thing is, Pollock doesn't quite see it that...
