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.

Prospect Highlights: Gregory Polanco Moves to Lead-Off Spot
