Zach Buchanan of AZ Central provides an update on AJ Pollock's injury and recovery:

Dr. Sheridan will perform surgery in next few days. Pollock could need a plate inserted— Zach Buchanan (@azc_zachb) June 1, 2014
The Diamondbacks pass along an update on Pollock's status:
The Arizona Diamondbacks were dealt a blow on Saturday night as outfielder A.J. Pollock may be forced out of the lineup for the foreseeable future.
The team's Twitter feed had the news:
A.J. Pollock was removed from tonight's game with a fractured right hand.— Arizona Diamondbacks (@Dbacks) June 1, 2014
Pollock appeared to have been injured by a pitch from Johnny Cueto in the Diamondbacks' game against the Cincinnati Reds. Nick Evans came in to replace him in the lineup. The Reds went on to win the game 5-0.
The loss of Pollock comes as a major setback for Arizona. The 26-year-old has been one of few bright spots on an otherwise fledgling Diamondbacks roster. He's hitting .316 with six home runs and 15 RBI on the season with a WAR of 3.0 through 51 games.
The Diamondbacks currently sit in the cellar of the NL West at just 23-35. That's a deficit that will be even more difficult to overcome as long as Pollock is potentially on the disabled list.
