A.J. Pollock

A.J. Pollock was set to be the Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder at the beginning of the 2019 season, but then injuries crept up with him and Cody Bellinger became, well, the best player in the National League.

He was placed on the 10-day Injured List with right elbow inflammation in April and then in June was transferred to the 60-day IL. He returned in July but never was the impactful player that LA envisioned when they signed him.

He struck out a ton in the first few games in the Division Series, which resulted in no playing time in the final games of their postseason.

The Dodgers, even without Pollock, would still be set up well with Joc Pederson, Cody Bellinger, and then Alex Verdugo with Kike Hernandez filling in from time to time.

Pollock signed a five-year contract worth $60 million so I think it would be a movable contract. And don’t get me wrong I am not saying A.J. Pollock isn’t a good baseball player but I just don’t think he has been a good fit or will be a good fit and it would be in the best interest of both parties to seek a trade.

The final candidate was a big part of their 2017 World Series run…
