D-backs place Pollock on DL, call up Fuentes from Reno

Snakebytes 5/15: More Than One Loss Diamondbacks place OF A.J. Pollock on 10-day DL with groin strain

Jake Lamb grounded out to second and the Pirates won the game, 6-4, in ten innings.

He said this injury feels "very similar" to the one he had in the other groin a year ago.

Pollock did walk off the field under his own power with field manager Torey Lovullo and assistant athletic trainer Ryan Dipanfilo. When he returns, he's going to be 100 percent.

Pollock, an All-Star and Gold Glove recipient in 2015, missed almost all of last season after breaking his elbow on a headfirst slide into home plate in an exhibition game two days before the opener. He battled a groin injury last September - after returning from a broken elbow - and again in spring training.

Pollock has appeared in 37 games this season, batting.299 with 12 doubles, three triples and two home runs. He batted.315 with 20 home runs and 39 stolen bases, in addition to being named a National League Gold Glove victor.

A cousin of Puerto Rican outfielder Carlos Beltran and a former first-round pick (28th overall) of the Boston Red Sox back in 2009, Fuentes was once a member of the Anthony Rizzo-Adrian Gonzalez trade the San Diego Padres and Red Sox made. Fuentes can play all three outfield spots, so he and veteran Gregor Blanco could slot into the mix in center field with Pollock on the shelf. He has batted.376 to open the season with the minor league affiliate.

Arizona Diamondbacks Sign Somerset Patriots' Pitcher - Somerset Patriots' left-handed pitcher Aaron Laffey has been purchased by the Arizona Diamondbacks. To make room for Fuentes, reliever Enrique Burgos was designated for assignment.
