Prospect Watch: Two Homers For Tony Sanchez, Three Hits By Gregory Polanco

TOP OF THE SYSTEM A look at how the current top 20 prospects did today. ┬áNote that this list doesn’t include players currently in the majors (Stolmy Pimentel #13).

If a player is out for the season (Jameson Taillon #2, Clay Holmes #12), he will be removed and everyone below him...

Sources: Gregory Polanco to be Promoted on Friday

I received word from two different sources that Gregory Polanco will be getting the call to Pittsburgh on Thursday, and will be activated for Friday’s game.┬áHe is still in Indianapolis, and is expected to leave tomorrow for Pittsburgh.

Prospect Highlights: More Strong Defense By Gregory Polanco, RBI Hit From Alen Hanson

In yesterday’s highlights, we saw Gregory Polanco make a nice shoestring catch. In last night’s Indianapolis game, he made this nice leaping grab going back towards the wall shown in the video below. We also showed his speed yesterday, with a clip of him stealing third base. This game may have been his last home game in Indianapolis. The team goes on the road now until June 11th and Polanco should be up with the Pittsburgh...
