Dodgers News: AJ Pollock Sets Target Date for Return to Lineup

AJ Pollock has appeared in only 28 games this season, but is still ready to contribute.

The Dodgers signed AJ Pollock to a 4 year, $60 million dollar contract this past off-season amidst the criticism of injury concerns and inconsistencies. In 115 at-bats this season, that acquisition has given the Dodgers a slash of .233/.287/.330 (64wRC+) and a right elbow surgery in early May.

Now, according to Pedro Moura of The Athletic, it looks like the Dodgers and AJ have set a target date for his return:

The Dodgers were 19-11 (0.633) with AJ Pollock and as the season went on and 35-15 (0.700) in the last 50 games without him.

The emergence of Alex Verdugo in AJ Pollock’s absence was a true blessing in disguise and the return of the veteran, should be able to give some of the outfields more rest, especially with Joc Pederson helping out at first base.
