2-A.J. Pollock

The D’backs’ All-Star center fielder has had a great month of July. He is hitting .344 with an on-base percentage of .427. Manager Chip Hale has begun tinkering with Pollock hitting behind Paul Goldschmidt instead of in front of him as he has most of the season. Pollock ranks fifth in the NL in stolen bases with 23. He has hit lefties and righties equally in 2015, with a batting average over .300 against both types of pitchers. With 22 doubles and 11 home runs, Pollock has a chance to go 30-30-20 as in doubles, steals and homers.
