Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder A.J. Pollock, who underwent surgery in early May for an infection in his surgically repaired elbow, will rejoin the team after the All-Star break, manager Dave Roberts told reporters Thursday.
Pollock went on the injured list April 30 to remove a plate in his right elbow from an operation in 2016. The infection developed after he had bumped the elbow during a series against the Chicago Cubs.
He is currently on a rehab assignment with Class A Rancho Cucamonga and is scheduled to join the Dodgers for a series against the Boston Red Sox that begins next Friday.
Pollock, 31, signed a four-year, $55 million contract with the Dodgers in the offseason, but the former All-Star and Gold Glove Award winner has struggled at the plate. He is batting .223 (23-for-103) with two home runs and 14 RBIs in 28 games this season.
