A broken thumb marked the third different injury to besiege Pollock in as many years. Although a terrific source of power and speed when healthy, he has played just 112 and 113 games in the last two seasons, respectively. When on the field, he endured a massive spike in strikeouts (21.7%) with a 77.8% contact rate five points below his career norm. Drafters must take all of these downsides into account while acknowledging the possibility of a 25/20 season with massive run-scoring upside if batting atop the Dodgers' lineup.

A.J. Pollock getting four years and $55 million from Dodgers

Buster Olney of ESPN reports A.J. Pollock is getting $55 million guaranteed over four years in his deal with the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact

Olney adds that Pollock has an opt out after the third year if he reaches a certain number of plate appearances. There is also a fifth year player option for $10 million that includes a $5 million buyout. Pollock began the off-season looking for a deal similar to Lorenzo Cain’s $80 million contract from last winter. He won’t get that much obviously, but he did pretty well for himself considering this current free agent climate. Pollock will be center field regularly for the Dodgers. He’s a high upside, high risk fantasy option.
