Description: Diamondbacks center fielder A.J. Pollock (hand) will undergo surgery and is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks, according to Jack Magruder of foxsportsarizona.com.
Insight: Pollock batted .379 with 10 doubles, three triples, three homers, 10 RBI, 17 runs and eight steals in his last 23 games, but he fractured his right hand when he was hit by a pitch Saturday night. His absence will open up more at-bats for Cody Ross and Eric Chavez.

Description: Diamondbacks center fielder A.J. Pollock fractured his right hand Saturday night when he was hit by a pitch, according to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic.
Insight: Pollock has batted .379 with 10 doubles, three triples, three homers, 10 RBI, 17 runs and eight steals in his last 23 games, so this is an unfortunate turn of events. The D'Backs will probably give more at-bats to Cody Ross and Eric Chavez with Pollock out.

Insight: Pollock has raised his average from .256 to .302 during that span. He's one of the top defensive outfielders in baseball but he hasn't done much to get excited about offensively during his career.

Description: Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock (groin) will start Tuesday for the first time since last Wednesday.
Insight: A groin injury limited him to pinch-hitting and defensive duty in the past five games. Pollock is one of baseball's top defensive outfielders but doesn't offer much value with the stick.

Description: Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock hit his sixth homer of the season Saturday against the Braves.
Insight: Pollock has unexpectedly received regular playing time due to injuries in Arizona's outfield. While his defense is spectacular -- Pollock's 10.6 UZR ranks third in baseball -- he's only hitting .255 with middling power and speed numbers.
