All-Star and Gold Glove victor Pollock injured his thumb in the ninth inning of Arizona's 7-2 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday when he dove on a failed attempt to catch a line drive hit by Tyler Saladino. The oft-injured Pollock had suffered an avulsion fracture to his left thumb, which occurs when the tendon detaches and brings a bit of bone with it.

The Milwaukee Brewers slugged four home runs in the first four innings en route to an 8-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field on Wednesday afternoon.

Pollock, 30, has been among the best players in baseball this season, batting.293/.349/.620 with 11 home runs, 33 RBI, 23 runs scored, and nine stolen bases in 166 plate appearances. He is a career.287 hitter. He's expected to miss between four and eight weeks, per manager Torey Lovullo. Pollock also won his lone Gold Glove Award that year. They will open up a three-game Interleague series with the Twins Friday night in Minnesota.
