After Pittsburgh’s starting right fielder Jose Tabata left yesterday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds with “mild” concussion-like symptoms* - an injury sustained when he crashed into the...

Gregory Polanco is on fire (VIDEO)

It’s only been a couple of weeks, but Gregory Polanco has lived up to the hype so far in Indianapolis. Here’s his stat line through Saturday night (10 games): 19-for-38, 2 doubles, 1 triple, 2 homers, 2 walks, 3 K’s, 1 SB, 2 CS. That’s a ridiculous triple-slash line of .500/.536/.763 Now, of course, that’s 10 games and he isn’t going to hit .500, but everyone expected...

There’s no Pirate game today and I think we’re all still a little down in the dumps from yesterday’s Jameson Taillon news, 4-2 record and Improbable Volquez aside, so here’s a clip of Gregory Polanco’s monster home run from yesterday. Enjoy!

Gregory Polanco and Big League readiness

Since Gregory Polanco's breakout in the Dominican Winter League, it's been inevitable that Spring Training 2014 was going to include a debate amongst fan and media members about whether he should break camp with the Pirates.

Gregory Polanco: “The Walking Toolshed”

In order to get out of the Dominican Republic as a baseball player, the saying goes, “No one walks off the island.” In a country with so much baseball talent per capita, scouts want to see Dominican players hit.
