Polanco knee soreness comes at tough time for Pirates' red-hot hitter

Gregory Polanco had to exit Wednesday's game with discomfort in his left knee, a tough break for the outfielder who has been one of the Pirates' top offensive threats all month. His abbreviated outing ended a streak of reaching base in 18 consecutive games, his bases-clearing double in the eight inning on Tuesday night sparking Pittsburgh's comeback to beat the Minnesota Twins. Polanco...

Game 96: Pirates 7 Nationals 5 (or: About Gregory Polanco)

As I always am for Pirates and Nationals games, I’m blacked from watching these games live this weekend and so I’m just sitting down now to watch some highlights from last night’s win. Beyond all of those obvious stuff (three home runs off of a guy they couldn’t get a hit off of a month ago, a win in the Jeff Locke/Max Scherzer matchup, etc.), I feel like it’s most worthwhile...

Game 93: Royals probably 3 Pirates probably 0 or 1, I don’t know, I turned it off after Polanco dropped that ball

Here is the reality of the Pirates current situation: they are badly short-handed. They probably won’t be this way for longer than a week, but they’re not in a situation with a ton of room for error and it’s happening against two of the best teams in baseball. That sucks, but it’s how pennant races work. One way to get through a period like this is to have the unexpected...

Gregory Polanco Memes from Friday’s fall

Look…sometimes you just have to laugh. Gregory Polanco fell down on Friday, and once you get over the fact that it lost the game for the Pirates (which may admittedly be difficult)….okay, yeah, it was pretty funny. As you would expect, the internet had some fun at poor Polanco’s expense: polanco stanky legg — nick pants (@nick_pants) May 15, 2015...

WATCH: Polanco slips, misplays routine fly ball to give Cubs win

The Chicago Cubs used this past offseason to put a new regime in place and give the team a new identity, and they hope that the days of often being on the losing end of embarrassing gaffes and unfortunate events are behind them. It seems that they may be onto something, as luck was on their side during Friday afternoon’s game against the Pirates. The two teams battled it out...

The Hidden Value of Gregory Polanco

On the surface Gregory Polanco appears to be having a fairly average sophomore season. Through 30 games Polanco is slashing a pedestrian .271/.320/.381. That is just a .702 OPS. 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.  ...

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. Gregory Polanco- Polanco could help the Pirates out sooner rather than later as June first is...

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