A couple Pittsburgh Pirates prospect highlights from the last two days. The first one is from baseball’s version of the human highlight reel(sorry Dominique Wilkins). Gregory Polanco hits a ball that looks like an easy chopper to first base and he ends up on second base with a double. Watch the highlight for yourself to see him pull that off.
The second one is from Mel Rojas Jr., who reaches down for a ball and puts it down the right field line for a stand-up double. He is hitting .303 with an .833 OPS from the left side, but he is just 3-for-16 with three singles as a righty.
And finally, just for the heck of it, we go back to Polanco from the other night. He rips an opposite field single off Chien-Ming Wang, the two-time 19 game winner in the majors with the Yankees, who now pitches for Louisville.
