Arizona Diamondbacks center fielder A.J. Pollack left the game last night following a scary looking arm injury after attempting a diving catch.

According to the Arizona Republic’s Nick Piecoro, Pollock was diagnosed with a sprain in his left thumb.

Pollock still must undergo further examination, including a trip to a hand specialist on Tuesday and a major injury cannot be ruled out at this point in time.

“I don’t even want to get there until we know what’s going on tomorrow” manager Torey Lovullo said after last night’s game.

Pollock has been a major part of the DBacks’ success this season, hitting .293 with 11 homers and 9 steals.
