GREGORY POLANCO RUMORS

Polanco down, Tabata up, Nix gone, Barmes back

The headline covers the Bucs’ notable roster moves on Monday: Gregory Polanco to Indianapolis, Jose Tabata back up from Indy, Jayson Nix designated for assignment, and Clint Barmes activated off the DL. Polanco going to the minors is a bit of a shock – especially if you’d have told me this would be happening a couple months ago – but it does make some sense. The rookie has...

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...

Pirates demote Polanco after rookie's second-half struggles

Catching up on Monday: Sunday’s loss and Polanco’s demotion

I was set to put up a quick summary of yesterday’s game and where the Pirates are in their playoff quest when I came into lab this morning, only to find out that the Pirates had demoted Gregory Polanco to make room for Clint Barmes. So let’s start there, obviously. I see a lot of grumbling about this move online, but honestly, I don’t see a huge problem here. Polanco is obviously...

Pirates optioned OF Gregory Polanco to Triple-A Indianapolis

Polanco's major league career got off to a roaring start, but he was stuck in a 1-for-30 slump and had batted just .197/.247/.310 in 156 plate appearances since July 9. Some low-intensity games in the minors might help the 22-year-old outfielder get back on track. He's likely to return to Pittsburgh when rosters expand September 1.

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...

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...
