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...

Hottest hitter in baseball? Pollock just trusting the process

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...
