One of the only bright spots on the season and a 26 yr old guy breaking out. He doesnt have seasons to give away. This truly does suck.

What a shame. He was playing like a superstar this year.

somehow this season seems worse in terms of injuries of the heartbreaking kind. As already said, Pollack was one of the few reasons to watch the DBacks this season.

He was working on a season that could've been a poor man's Mike Trout. Which of course is a damn nice player. As someone who picked him up on his fantasy team, I was wondering how for-real he was.

Primed for some regression of course, but the pop is real. He was hitting it hard. That was what was surprising to me. Not surprised he can hit for average. Not enough walks, and low ld rate and high iff/fb rate would suggest babip would drop a lot from where it was. Good defender and baserunner.

It looked like he would be somewhat better than his ROS projections at FG due to the unforseen power
