Roberts said that Pollock is expected to be out “a bit” according to Roberts, but he expects him to return to the team at some point this season. It looks like the infection was triggered when Pollock bumped his elbow on the field while the team was in Chicago last week.
Pollock had elbow surgery back in 2016 that kept him out for five months. The good news for Pollock and the Dodgers is that he is not expected to be out for that long.
On the season, Pollock is hitting .223 with two home runs and 14 RBI.
- According to Roberts, Andrew Toles has reported to Camelback Ranch. This is great news, as Toles took a leave on absence back in February and didn’t report to Spring Training
- Caleb Ferguson, who is currently on the 10-day IL, threw a bullpen session today. There’s no timetable for his return yet
