2-A.J. Pollock

After a red-hot August in which he hit .377, Pollock has cooled down in September. He has six hits, two of them home runs, in 33 plate appearances. Pollock’s 94 runs scored is fourth in all of baseball while his 33 stolen bases ranks fifth. He was on pace for 40 doubles and 40 steals but his slump in September puts that in jeopardy. Still, Pollock as established himself as one of the elite center fielders in the game, one that will be hopefully rewarded with a contract extension this offseason. He has fared well against the Dodgers in 2015, hitting .298 with an on-base percentage of .353.
