A.J. Pollock Named National League Player of the Week

For A.J. Pollock, Monday was a bittersweet day.  The Arizona Diamondbacks’ center fielder underwent surgery to fix a broken hand and was also named the National League Player of the Week. Talk about emotions. Pollock’s tremendous season, which might have garnered him his first All-Star appearance, was cut short on a pitch delivered by Cincinnati’s Johnny Cueto on Saturday night.

For the week of 5/26-6/1, Pollock went 12 for 23 (.522) and sported a .593 on-base percentage. He also cracked six doubles, scored nine runs and hit a game-ending, two-run homer on Monday, lifting the D’backs to a 7-5 victory over the San Diego Padres. It was the second time this season Pollock has won a weekly award. For the week of May 12th-May 18th, A.J. was named Co-National League Player of the Week along with Yasiel Puig of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Congratulations to A.J. Pollock on an award that is richly deserved.
