Arizona Diamondbacks center fielder and reigning National League Player of the Month A.J. Pollock left Monday's game vs. the Milwaukee Brewers with an injury after diving for a ball in the outfield.
The injury occurred in the ninth inning on a hit by the Brewers' Tyler Saladino that resulted in an inside-the-park home run after Pollock was unable to make the grab. Pollock's hand appeared to land awkwardly on the grass as he dove for the ball.
After the game, D-backs manager Torey Lovullo said Pollock suffered a sprained left thumb and was undergoing X-rays. Lovullo said Pollock will see a hand specialist on Tuesday.
