GREGORY POLANCO RUMORS

Gregory Polanco Optioned To Triple-A Indianapolis

The Indianapolis Indians (Triple-A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates) just got some good news. The Pirates have optioned rookie Gregory Polanco to them after a recent slump where he went 1/30 and batted .197 since July 9th.  Odds are that Gregory will see another opportunity with the Pirates by years end when rosters expand in September but a move back down may do him some good...

Pittsburgh Pirates: Media drops ball on Gregory Polanco

Follow me on Twitter @jim_krug; opening image credit guardianlv.com If Gregory Polanco’s 5-for-7 night at the plate- capped off by a go-ahead 2-run home run in the 13th inning of the Pittsburgh Pirates’ eventual 8-6 victory over the Miami Marlins- is any indication of what is to come, Pittsburgh should have called up the star prospect much, much sooner. Finally! Image credit...

The Polanco Disease

Gregory Polanco is in the big leagues and it's really exposed some things about Pirate fans that less subjective viewers of the team have probably noticed. Pirate fans are extremely, extremely over emotional and don't factor in logic and reason too often. I don't even think I need to talk about how ridiculous it was to think that the Pirates weren't doing the right...

Will Gregory Polanco Make His MLB Debut For The Pirates Soon?

Since the start of the minor league season for Gregory Polanco, it’s been cake. He’s taken the pitching in the International League to town with a line of .350/.411/.548 while with Triple-A Indianapolis. He’s also totaled 46 RBI in just 55 games. Not to mention, he’s also helped out with 14 stolen bases. Polanco should be a fantasy stat monster when he does get called up...

Pittsburgh Pirates: Three prospects that can make a difference this year

Jeff Locke Two months into the season and the Pittsburgh Pirates are 25-30 and have a struggling starting rotation, many defensive miscues and a streaky offense.  That being said the Indianapolis Indians have three prospects that may have the best chance of helping the Pirates out. 1.

The Indy Indians are teasing us with Gregory Polanco

Any Pirate fan should know all about Gregory Polanco by now, but if you don’t, he’s the Pirates’ top prospect – an outfielder with sky high potential, all the tools (OBP/plate discipline, power, speed, arm, etc), and ridiculous numbers in Triple-A Indianapolis. Through 23 games, he is hitting .400/.460/.644 with 4 HR and 24 RBI. After a couple of national feature stories...

Pittsburgh Pirates Prospect Gregory Polanco Forcing Bucs Hand

Gregory Polanco Draws Rave Reviews From the Futures Game

Gregory Polanco drew rave reviews from the Futures Game. There’s something about the Futures Game that leads to a top Pirates prospect giving a bad first impression that doesn’t represent his skills at all. On Sunday, Gregory Polanco started in center field for the World team. Polanco went 0-for-1 with a walk, but the thing that stood out was his bad route on a ball hit over...
