The Pittsburgh Pirates announced via twitter tonight that Gregory Polanco will be on his way to Pittsburgh tomorrow for Tuesday night’s game against the Chicago Cubs. Neil Walker was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to an appendectomy on Monday. Polanco will take his place on the roster. For Indianapolis this season, Polanco has a .347/.405/540 slash line in 62 games with seven homers and 15 stolen bases. He was recently moved to the lead-off spot and will likely take that role with the Pirates, although the absence of Walker might temporarily change those plans.
