— Player Notes
Advice: Pollock will make his season debut for the D'Backs on Friday, as he's in center field and batting second against Brandon Finnegan and the Reds. The outfielder was on the shelf for the bulk of the first five months of the season with a fractured elbow.Fri, Aug 26 Rotoworld
Advice: Pollock is expected to make his season debut Friday against the Reds after missing the first five months of the year with a fractured elbow. The 28-year-old was an absolute monster for the D'Backs in 2015 and looked sharp during his minor league rehab assignment. Even if he only plays four or five times a week, Pollock will still be a worthy investment for fantasy owners.

Advice: There was talk of a Wednesday or Thursday return, but the out-of-contention Diamondbacks don't want to be too aggressive with their prized center fielder. Pollock, out all season due to a fractured elbow, has batted .433/.541/.733 with two home runs and two stolen bases on his 10-game minor league rehab assignment.

Advice: Pollock had a minor oblique issue early last week, but he's over it now and is 4-for-8 with two doubles since moving up to the Triple-A level on Saturday. He's batting .433/.541/.733 with two homers over 37 plate appearances during his rehab assignment and is capable of making a big impact in fantasy leagues for the final month of the season.

Advice: Hale also noted that if all goes well there, he could return to the Diamondbacks lineup before the end of next week. It has been a remarkably quick recovery for the dynamic young outfielder who should now be owned in all mixed leagues for the stretch run.

Advice: Pollock didn't play for three days due to tightness in his intercostal area. The ailment apparently arose following a long car ride rather than any baseball-related activity he did, which is a relief. Pollock is expected to move his rehab assignment up to Triple-A Reno on Friday. He's about a week and a half away from rejoining the Diamondbacks, assuming all goes well. Pollock is batting .409/.519/.727 with two homers over eight games so far on his rehab assignment.
