GREGORY POLANCO RUMORS

Offense is fun

The Pirates remembered how to hit the baseball on Friday, and it was good: Every starting position player reached base at least once. Gregory Polanco and Starling Marte both had huge games, which they both badly needed. Polanco had three hits including a double and was motoring around the bases all night. Marte had an infield hit, a steal, and a colossal blast to put the game away...

Pittsburgh Pirates offer Gregory Polanco contract extension

CalebOnSports.com   The Pittsburgh Pirates want to keep their outfield in tact for the foreseeable future, and with very good reason. With the Pirates having already locked up center fielder Andrew McCutchen and left fielder Starling Marte to long-term deals, the last piece of that puzzle is right fielder Gregory Polanco. Yesterday, the Pirates reached out to Polanco to open up...

Gregory Polanco and Defensive Projections

While examining some projections on Fangraphs today, I came across a curious discrepancy regarding Gregory Polanco. Fangraphs lists 4 different projections per player: Steamer, ZiPS, Depth Charts (a blend of Steamer and ZiPS) and Fan projections. Because Depth Charts rely on two of the other systems, however, we can essentially ignore it for these purposes. Last year, Polanco made...

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...

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.

Pirates offered Polanco a long term deal

On Tuesday night, Yahoo and CBS reported that the Pirates offered top prospect Gregory Polanco a seven year contract during spring training–which he turned down. The deal was reportedly worth about $25 million over seven years, and it also had three club option years which could have made the contract worth between $50 million and $60 million. This is pretty big news. Everyone’s...

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 is ready and willing to make his MLB debut once that formality of a phone call is made by the Pittsburgh Pirates brain-trust to promote the uber prospect. The Pirates will try and keep Polanco marinating in Triple A in an attempt to extend their team control and his free agent eligibility however you can’t keep a good man down.
