One important Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder returned from injury on Monday night and another is on the way, and fantasy managers will certainly notice the upgraded lineup. A.J. Pollock got off to such a great start this season that when he fractured his left thumb attempting a diving catch in mid-May, he was a top-10 fantasy option in the sport, according to the ESPN Player Rater, with 11 home runs, 9 stolen bases and a .293 batting average through a mere 40 games. Pollock had Mike Trout numbers when we last saw him.
