It’s a dangerous spot for a pitcher, facing Polanco with runners in scoring position. In 54 at-bats, he has a .481/.533/.778 slash line, with 36 RBIs. For...

Prospect Highlights: Gregory Polanco Strikes Again, Mel Rojas Jr. With Walk-Off Hit

While Indianapolis was on the road in Pawtucket, the highlights posted online were far and few between. Since they left, we have seen some nice videos on Gregory Polanco. On Wednesday, he got the Indians on the board early with an RBI double in the first inning. He just missed a homer, ending up with his ninth double of the season and his league leading 28th RBI.
