Injured Dodgers center fielder AJ Pollock, out since April 29th with an elbow infection and subsequent surgery, has completed his minor league rehabilitation assignment with the Quakes.

After going 0 for his first 12 at-bats, he collected his first hit via the home run ball on Tuesday night.
Earlier this week, the club activated David Freese from the 10-day while optioning Edwin Rios and Kyle Garlick to AAA.
The Dodgers active roster currently sits at 24 after the activation of Corey Seager, and option of Matt Beaty. Pollock’s eventual activation would not usually require an additional roster move, however he was transferred to the 60-day IL late in June after Zac Rosscup had his contract purchased from triple-A Oklahoma City.
With the 40-man roster full — and Tony Cingrani and Rich Hill already on the 60-day IL — Rocky Gale may find himself in danger of losing a roster spot before Pollock can be activated ahead of game one in Boston as the second half of the season kicks off.
