During the first couple weeks of the season, we have seen Gregory Polanco hit for power, hit for average, show off his speed and make a fine defensive play. On Friday night, we got a glimpse of the fifth tool, picking up an outfield assist by throwing out a runner at home plate. It was his third outfield assist of this season and 39th of his career.
One other highlight from Friday night’s Indianapolis game. While he isn’t a prospect anymore at this stage, who doesn’t enjoy seeing The Hit Collector do what he does best? Matt Hague collects his 436th hit in an Indianapolis uniform with a three-run homer in the fourth inning.
