D'backs' hot-hitting OF fractures hand

PHOENIX — Diamondbacks OF A.J. Pollock will have surgery on his fractured right hand in the next few days, and manager Kirk Gibson estimated Sunday that he'll miss about 5-8 weeks.

Arizona placed Pollock on the 15-day disabled list and purchased the contract of OF David Peralta from Double-A Mobile. Peralta started in leftfield Sunday for his major-league debut.

Pollock was hit in the hand by Reds RHP Johnny Cueto in the eighth inning of Saturday's 5-0 loss. He has been one of the team's best players and is tied for second in the National League with four triples, seventh in slugging percentage (.554), tied for seventh in doubles (16) and tied for eighth in extra-base hits (26).

O'S DODGE BULLET: Orioles OF Nelson Cruz is day to day after being hit on his left hand by a pitch. X-rays were negative.

CHISOX SLUGGER TO RETURN: White Sox rookie 1B Jose Abreu, out for two weeks with tendinitis in his left ankle, is expected to be activated from the disabled list tonight.

ANGELS: CF Mike Trout missed a second straight game with back stiffness.

GIANTS: 1B Michael Morse was scratched from the lineup after fouling a ball off his left foot during batting practice.

YANKEES: RF Carlos Beltran, on the disabled list with a bone spur in his right elbow, got through another round of onfield batting practice without feeling pain and headed to Tampa for extended spring training games.
