Comment on Pirates Are Trying to Extend Gregory Polanco by Darkstone42 http://www.piratesprospects.com/2015/03/pirates-are-trying-to-extend-gregory-polanco.html#comment-83734 Mon, 30 Mar 2015 23:54:00 +0000 http://www.piratesprospects.com/?p=97145#comment-83734 It’s kind of a risk, obviously, to sign him before he proves himself, but the reward side is enormous and makes it worthwhile. Even paying him Yelich money, with the quality and low cost of that outfield, impacts in the middle of the order, great on the bases and in the field, wouldn’t be too bad if he gets to somewhere in the vicinity of Marte production.

The two LHSP’s seems to be this answer. No way Locke was going to be lost by trying to send him down to AAA, and this is just another way to keep everybody.

I like his upside, and looking at the contracts of Yelich and Marte can be helpful, but he cannot be worth more than what was offered last year.

If that is how they are thinking then they either need to start drafting more LHP starter candidates, or trade some of their RHP prospects for some LHP ones because they don’t have a 3:2 RH/LH mix in their minor league system. Not even close!

He might be in the mix for the 25 spot as well. I’m all for bouncing Charlie!
