Polanco is a another CF from the Pirates system who has Marte speed and power only from the left side. 400+ AB’s at Lo A with 26 doubles, 16 HR’s, 85 RBI’s, and 40 SB’s, and he just turned 21 in September. Oh, and he has remarkable recuperative powers.


I thought Polanco couldnt play. Lost a leg or something.


He was severely injured in a training drill, but now thanks to a miracle is okay.

That Marte guy seems legit.
