A.j. Pollock Newsbeat

Forgot About A.J. (Pollock) | FanGraphs Baseball

A.J. Pollock is a very, very good player.

The National League has a lot of talented outfielders, and right now Pollock isn’t among their most popular. That’s OK. The Diamondbacks are still a long way from contention, and even with Paul Goldschmidt and Pollock, they certainly don’t have a high-powered attack, so if it’s deemed that Goldschmidt is their only All-Star, well there are worse fates. A.J. Pollock missed half of last season, and as such a lot of casual fans probably don’t know about him yet. But Pollock certainly deserves strong consideration. He has been among the game’s elite for more than just this season, and he plays a really fun brand of baseball — he doesn’t do anything poorly, and he does several things well. Those types of players are fun to watch. Hopefully this will be the last time the voters can say that they forgot about A.J.
