Diamondbacks’ A.J. Pollock out 4 to 8 weeks with broken thumb
SFGate -

Arizona's sputtering offense has taken a severe hit: center fielder A.J. Pollock is expected to miss four to eight weeks with a broken left thumb.

Pollock was injured diving unsuccessfully for Tyler Saladino's line drive that turned into an inside-the-park home run in the ninth inning of Monday's 7-2 loss to Milwaukee.

Manager Torey Lovullo said Tuesday that Pollock has an avulsion fracture, which occurs where a tendon or ligament attaches to the bone.
