A.J. Pollock has a right elbow infection and will likely be placed on the injured list by the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Pollock hasn't played more than 113 games in a season since he was an All-Star in 2015 because of injuries. He played only 12 games in 2016 after fracturing his right elbow.

The 31-year-old is batting .223 in 28 games this season.

He agreed to a four-year, $55 million deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers in January.
