Prospect Highlights: One Last Polanco Hit, Home Run From Tony Sanchez

Gregory Polanco made his Major League debut on Tuesday night and went 1-for-5 with a run scored. We have seen his highlights all season from Indianapolis and even made a top ten list yesterday showing each of his five tools. While he technically still has 125 at-bats in the Majors before he loses his prospect status, it is highly unlikely he will return to the minors. With that in mind, here is one last Prospect Highlight from this...

On Friday night in Syracuse, Gregory Polanco homered to lead-off the game, which turned out to be the only run of the game for the Indians. It was his seventh homer of the season.

He’s also making amazing contact at the plate, striking out just once in his last 49 plate appearances. He also has 15 stolen bases this...
