Four days after fracturing his right elbow in a head-first slide, Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock underwent successful surgery to repair that elbow, the team reported.

A plate was placed on the olecranon fracture at the tip of the elbow during surgery, the D-backs reported. There is still no timetable for his return.

Pollock's injury occurred on this play during Friday night's exhibition game vs. the Kansas City Royals.

Pollock was an All-Star last season and was among the National League leaders in batting average, stolen bases and doubles. Earlier on Tuesday, the D-backs placed Pollock on the 60-day disabled list.
