AJ Pollock has suffered several injuries in his 7 year baseball career. We like to call this type of player; injury prone.
List of injuries:
- In 2010 and a minor leaguer at the time, AJ Pollock broke his elbow on a diving catch during a spring training game. He missed the rest of the season.
- In 2014, he missed the second half with a broken hand after getting hit by a pitch.
- In 2016, he broke his right elbow again, this time sliding into home plate. He missed most of the 2016 season.
- In 2017, he was placed on the 10 day DL due to a right groin strain.
- In 2018, he fractured his thumb trying to make a diving catch. The doctors said he would be approximately out for 4-8 weeks.
An injury prone player is perfect for an injury prone team!
The Mets are known for their injuries so Pollock would be a perfect fit for our disabled list! Why go for the elite players on the free agent market when you could take a huge risk and sign Pollock!? We sign him and I guarantee he goes on the disabled list because isn’t that what usually happens!
I wonder how many people are reacting to the headline rather than reading the article! We shall see!
