Odor reportedly rejected extension offer from Rangers

Right hooks notwithstanding, Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor has had a fantastic year. With 16 home runs and 46 RBIs on a .275/.296/.491 slash line in the first half of the season, Odor has flashed tremendous power for a middle infielder and has helped Texas to a comfortable lead atop the AL West. The 22-year-old has done well to boost his value, and he knows it. According to...

Gregory Polanco and the search for consistency

Last year on the Fourth of July, I sat on top of the right field wall at PNC Park and talked quite a bit to my dad about Gregory Polanco. I said that it was hard to find a whole ton of evidence that Polanco had improved much at the plate in the year-plus since his call-up, and that I wondered if maybe the Pirates would be considering trading Polanco given Jung Ho Kang’s emergence...

Gregory Polanco easily retires Trevor Cahill on a 9-3 putout

Usually when we see 9-3 putouts, a catcher or pitcher is running, the right fielder is playing shallow, and uncorks a laser beam of a throw to retire the baserunner. And on Tuesday in Pittsburgh, that’s exactly what happened when Gregory Polanco gunned out Trevor Cahill, who wasn’t even running hard to first. At least Cahill did his job for the Cubs on the mound – he struck...

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

By Matt Birch 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...

Gregory Polanco’s Legs Turn To Spaghetti On Final Play Vs. Cubs (Video)

Maybe Gregory Polanco was doing his best wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube man impersonation. Or maybe he was channeling his inner Elaine Benes. Either way, Polanco’s mishap Friday on the final play of the Pittsburgh Pirates’ walk-off loss to the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field was a sight to behold. Matt Szczur lifted a fly ball to right field in the bottom of...

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.  ...
