The counterpart to Pederson, Pollock is the presumed related move should Joc be traded in the future.
Pollock, the Diamondbacks’ center fielder since 2012, is on the free agent market and the Dodgers are one of the teams in discussion with him.
At 31-years-old, Pollock has had an interesting career. When he’s healthy and playing, Pollock is one of the league’s most productive bats with defense that plays well above average in center field.
Pollock’s problem has never been on the field. His issue is how much he can be on the field. Over the last three seasons, Pollock has played 237 of 486 games. At a price of what is projected to be about $15 million, the question for the Dodgers is how much is Pollock worth to this team?
Is he worth $15 million a season where he may only play 110 games? Is he worth parting ways with Joc Pederson? We’re about to find out.
