Prospect Highlights: Gregory Polanco’s Second Homer of the Year

Today in our “Prospect Highlights” series, which will probably soon be renamed “Polanco Highlights”, we have Gregory Polanco breaking out the nine iron to crush a two-run homer golf-swing style from last night’s game. It was the second homer of the year for Polanco, and was part of his 4-for-4 night at the plate.

      Certainly won’t easy since he is a left handed thrower.

        You need to think outside the box. Obviously he would just need to switch to throwing right handed. Simple fix.

    Gotta love that left on left action.

    • piraddict

      Brings back memories of how Willie Stargell used to swing at that pitch location.

    By the time he comes up, our expectations for him are going to be completely unfair for a rookie.

      and if he is even half as good as we hope, he is going to be an insane talent
