Former Pirates RF Travis Snider, who Polanco replaced, has a .749 OPS this season with the Orioles. But Polanco packs some serious extra value to his game. That value can be found on the base paths.  ...

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.
