Sore neck keeps Pollock out of D-backs' lineup

CHICAGO -- D-backs outfielder A.J. Pollock was out of the lineup Monday, one day after being removed from a game in Los Angeles with tightness on the left side of his neck.

After Sunday's game, Pollock said he hoped the neck would get better overnight and he would be able to play Monday.

"It's pretty sore still," he said. "It was feeling pretty [bad] last night. But you know the neck, you get something worked back in line and then it starts to heal so it can be pretty quick."

With that in mind, the team was working to get Pollock in to see the Cubs' team chiropractic specialist.

Tony Campana was in the lineup in center field in place of Pollock.
