GREGORY POLANCO RUMORS

Player Profile #135: Gregory Polanco | OF | PIT

Gregory Polanco is an impressive prospect, all 6’4, 220 pounds of him. He’s demonstrated great peripherals stats, particularly his K and BB rates, at every level of the minors and has been delivering in all five fantasy categories at each stop since tearing up A-ball in 2012 (.325/.388/.522, 84 R, 16 HR, 85 RBI, 40 SB). Last year the hype surrounding Polanco reached its critical...

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 thing holding...

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.

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. The 22-year old is doing everything...

(Follow me on Twitter @jim_krug; opening image credit Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.) Five questions hounding the defending NL Wild Card winners heading into Opening Day… 1.  Is Travis Ishikawa really GM Neal Huntington’s “answer” at first base?      I am far from a fan of the longtime Pirates’ GM, but even I was expecting better.  After having an entire offseason with...

Gregory Polanco’s nickname is ‘El Coffee’, and he went yard today

They’re calling him “El Coffee” and he’s got the twitter handle to prove it. We’re excited about Gregory Polanco – some scouts compare his big, powerful, looping swing to Darryl Strawberry. While everyone is talking about Ryan Braun’s home run in his first spring at-bat, the one we took note of was the one hit by the youngster who wears Bucco black. Today, Polanco broke...
