The Los Angeles Dodgers today announced the signing of free-agent outfielder A.J. Pollock to a four-year contract with a player option for an additional year.

Pollock, 31, hit a career-high 21 home runs in just 113 games for the Arizona Diamondbacks last season and was named National League Player of the Week for April 30-May 6, as well as NL Player of the Month for April after slugging .670 with nine homers and 24 RBIs.

Pollock's best season came in 2015 when he was named to his first All-Star team and batted .315 with 20 homers while collecting 39 stolen bases. Following that season, the center fielder won a Rawlings National League Gold Glove.  

In 105 starts in center field last year, Pollock made just one error and his .996 fielding percentage tied for second-best among NL outfielders.

The Connecticut native has a career .281 batting average with 74 home runs, 264 RBIs and 103 stolen bases in 637 Major League games after being selected in the first round of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft out of Notre Dame.

The Dodgers now have 40 players on their 40-man roster.
