A.J. Pollock 2014 Outlook
Posted 09 February 2014 - 12:05 PM
350 MiLB OBP?
1/2 BB/K ratio in MiLB?
30 SB in AA, 21 in AAA
Wow, forgot all about this guy. I'm on him like white on rice. Cheaper than a Starbucks cup of joe on a rainy Sunday morn.

Anyways, perfect $1 guy in my book. I went back to my 2012 mixed auction results and De Aza went for $2. Pollock obviously doesn't have the power, but I'm more interested in that 80R, 20 SB ceiling.

The author seems to think that AJ is headed for a platoon situation, but looking at his minor league splits he doesn't really look like a platoon type guy.

Just wanted to jump on some preseason thoughts. Eaton's SB attempts were limited due to Gibson's disdain for "giving up outs" (Source: ARZ mlb.com) Now Ventura is talking about manufacturing runs for CWS instead of playing for the 3 run HR. Since Pollack is basically still a rookie to Gibson, and he hasn't exactly earned the green light, I'm somewhat concerned about his actual SB attempts. He's so cheap, it's not an end game anyway.
Anyways, just a reminder how coaching philosophy can affect SBs. It's one narrative I actually pay attention to and read between the preseason lines.

I place little to no value on spring stats, but sometimes it does put people on my radar who would otherwise be in my blind spot.
Pollock showed some promise last year as a platoon player and strikes me as one of those guys who always gives everything he has and can be a real spark plug for the team.
He's moving into my end-of-draft-flier allstars.
