PHOENIX -- A.J. Pollock was out of the starting lineup Tuesday, when he sat down with D-backs hitting coach Turner Ward.
Pollock was in a bit of a slump offensively coming off an 0-for-6 day on Monday and batting just .222 during an 11-game stretch. But since Pollock entered that game Tuesday and delivered a pinch-hit, two-run homer, the D-backs outfielder has returned to being a tough out for opposing pitchers.
