A.J. Pollock (elbow) could begin rehab assignment during All-Star break

A.J. Pollock, recovering from elbow surgery that has sidelined him since late April, could play rehab games during the All-Star break.

Fantasy Impact

That still makes the outfielder at least a month away from returning to the Dodgers. Alex Verdugo has flourished in his absence, so the Dodgers are looking into giving Joc Pederson work at first base, which likely would mean Max Muncy moving to second. Since Pollock was hitting .223/.287/.330 with two homers and no steals in 28 games before getting sidelined, he's not an essential stash in shallow mixed leagues.

A.J. Pollock (elbow) will need 40-50 at-bats before returning

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts says A.J. Pollock (elbow) will need 40-50 at-bats on a minor league rehab assignment before returning.

Fantasy Impact

Pollock is nearing baseball activities but it will still probably be a month or more until he returns to the Dodgers. Los Angeles has a big lead in the division and can therefore take their time with him to ensure he stays healthy for the long haul. Alex Verdugo will continue to be a must-start fantasy option in his absence.

A.J. Pollock (elbow) will undergo surgery, no timetable to return

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters Wednesday that A.J. Pollock will undergo elbow surgery.

Fantasy Impact

Pollock is having the metal hardware removed from his elbow that was inserted back in 2016. It's the continuation of a length history for the veteran outfielder. Roberts said there is no timetable for Pollock to return but mentioned he is expected back this season. Alex Verdugo figures to be the big beneficiary in terms of playing time. He should be added everywhere.

A.J. Pollock (elbow) will undergo exploratory surgery

A.J. Pollock will undergo exploratory surgery to determine the severity of his right elbow infection.

Fantasy Impact

If the doctors find issue with his growth plate it will need to be repaired. Pollock was placed on the 10-day IL earlier on Tuesday. Alex Verdugo should get the majority of starts in his absence.

A.J. Pollock (elbow) placed on 10-day IL

A.J. Pollock has been placed on the 10-day IL with right elbow inflammation.

Fantasy Impact

Pollock has had elbow issues in the past but this isn’t viewed as a long term absence for him. Alex Verdugo should see a big increase in playing time during his absence and is worth a pickup in all leagues.
