The last two days were basically Gregory Polanco showing off tools, with a nice shoestring catch and a stolen base on Monday, then a terrific catch and an RBI hit yesterday. We need to see something else though, so how about a heads up play in the outfield, followed by a strong throw to second base for an out? I’m assuming he will complete the five tool show tonight with a home run so we can feature it tomorrow.
While Gregory Polanco is a human highlight reel on his own, we can’t give you just one highlight today, so here is Matt Hague’s home run from Monday night. The Hit Collector has turned into the Home Run Collector, hitting eight already this season, matching last year’s total. He is the hottest hitter on Indianapolis, posting a 1.171 OPS over his last ten games. If he keeps hitting like this, you might see his return to the majors at some point this year, possibly a bench option in September.Pirates Prospects is FREE today in honor of the Wild Card game.
