• Out of nowhere, A.J. Pollock has managed to salvage what was a pretty lousy season through the first few weeks. Pollock went 2-for-4 with a home run yesterday and is 9-for-18 from the plate in his last six games with five steals, four runs and four RBI. Nearly half of his counting stats have been registered in the last week, so this hasn't exactly been a complete breakout. Still, he's some major potential and is worth keeping an eye on, or owning in the short-term if you're looking for a hot hand to ride.
