Mariners' AJ Pollock: Slumping with bat in spring
Pollock is hitting .143 (4-for-28) with a double, one walk and one run across 10 Cactus League games.
Pollock has struck out eight times as well, making for an inauspicious start to his Mariners tenure. The veteran outfielder mustered an underwhelming .245/.292/.389 slash line across 138 games during his lone White Sox campaign in 2022, but he demonstrated he still had plenty of pop in his bat by rapping out 41 extra-base hits across 527 plate appearances. Pollock is in line to see regular playing time between designated hitter duties and a rotational role in the outfield.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' AJ Pollock: Exits lineup Sunday
Pollock was removed from Sunday's Cactus League lineup against the Rangers.
There's been no announcement of an injury to this point, so Pollock's removal from the starting nine may have nothing to do with his health. Barring an update from the team, the veteran outfielder should be expected to return to game action within a day or two.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' AJ Pollock: One-year deal with Seattle
Pollock signed a one-year, $7 million contract with the Mariners on Saturday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Pollock was below the league average as a hitter (92 wRC+) in 2022 for the first time since 2016. Even in a down year, he still crushed southpaws to the tune of a .286/.316/.619 slash line in 133 plate appearances. Pollock played double-digit games at each outfield spot last season, so his defensive versatility also appealed to Seattle. As things stand, Pollock should get close to everyday work to start his age-35 season, but he could transition to the short side of a platoon if he struggles again against righties.... See More ...

White Sox's AJ Pollock: Enters free agency
Pollock declined his $13 million player option for 2023 and received a $5 million buyout to become a free agent Tuesday, Buster Olney of ESPN reports.
Known as a solid offensive threat throughout his time in Arizona and Los Angeles, Pollock posted a career-worst .681 OPS upon joining the White Sox in 2022. Despite this, the 34-year-old outfielder was still able to crush left-handed pitching to the tune of a .935 OPS and 11 home runs in 133 plate appearances against southpaws. His dominance against lefties could prove to be valuable for teams in search of a rotational piece in the outfield.... See More ... See Less

White Sox's AJ Pollock: Scores twice, swipes bag
Pollock went 2-for-3 with two runs scored and a steal in Monday's win over the Twins.
The 34-year-old showed he still has some speed as he came across to score twice and recorded his third stolen base of the season. He singled and scored on a home run in his first at-bat and later singled, stole second and scored on a base hit. Pollock has been hitting well to close the season, batting .300 (15-for-50) with four home runs over his last 14 games. He is slashing .247/.294/.392 through 137 games this season.... See More ...

White Sox's AJ Pollock: Tallies 14th homer
Pollock went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk against the Tigers on Friday.
Pollock took Eduardo Rodriguez deep for his 14th home run of the season. He's homered in three of his last five starts and also has eight RBI in his last six games. Despite the hot stretch, Pollock has only a .242/.289/.391 slash line across 494 plate appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's AJ Pollock: Homers in extra-innings loss
Pollock went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Tuesday's 10-7 extra-innings loss to the Guardians.
Pollock knocked in a run on a fielder's choice in the sixth inning, then added a two-run homer in the 11th. The White Sox's rally ended with that long ball, but Pollock's been solid by driving in six runs over the last three games. He's hitting .294 (20-for-68) with four homers in September and is up to a .246/.292/.391 slash line with 13 homers, 54 RBI, 56 runs scored and a pair of stolen bases through 126 contests overall....

White Sox's AJ Pollock: Knocks in two in win
Pollock went 1-for-4 with two RBI in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Tigers.
Pollock knocked in Eloy Jimenez and Andrew Vaughn on a seventh-inning single that gave Chicago a short-lived lead. The hit in Saturday's contest was Pollock's first in five games. The veteran outfielder has been streaky with two separate five-game hit streaks this month, so this could be the start of another such run. Pollock is slashing .242/.290/.377 to go along with 11 homers and two steals on the season.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's AJ Pollock: Scores three times in win
Pollock went 4-for-5 with three runs scored and a steal in Saturday's 10-2 win over Oakland.
Pollock scored on a Yasmani Grandal single in the second inning, an Andrew Vaughn double in the fourth and a Grandal sac fly in the eighth. He also swiped his second bag of the year in the contest. The veteran outfielder has been on fire this month, going hitless in just one of ten games. His slash line this month sits at .368/.429/.605. Pollock has raised his season batting average to .249, his highest mark since June 24.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's AJ Pollock: Tallies 11th homer
Pollock went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Monday against the Mariners.
Pollock was in the starting lineup against a southpaw, which pushed Gavin Sheets to the bench. Pollock took advantage of the opportunity, taking Marco Gonzales yard in the second inning to tally his 11th homer of the season. He has maintained only a .678 OPS across 430 plate appearances for the campaign and will likely be relegated to short-side platoon duty when the rest of the White Sox's outfield is healthy....

White Sox's AJ Pollock: Goes deep Wednesday
Pollock went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Royals.
Pollock got the White Sox on the board with his fourth-inning blast. The outfielder has swatted four of his nine homers this year in August, including two in his last five games. For the season, he's slashing .237/.285/.368 with 43 RBI, 45 runs scored and a stolen base through 108 contests. Pollock's hit atop the lineup at times in 2022, but Elvis Andrus was in that spot Wednesday, as the White Sox haven't settled on one player for that role.... See More ... See Less
