Twins | Jorge Polanco gets rare start at short

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 16:54:18 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Jorge Polanco is making a rare start Thursday, July 30, batting ninth against Seattle Mariners SP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: Nothing to see here. Polanco is only up because Trevor Plouffe went on the paternity list, and is getting his first start of the year here. However, he's logged just 10 career at-bats over two years in the big leagues and deserves absolutely zero fantasy consideration.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe on paternity list

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 11:48:48 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe was placed on the paternity list Wednesday, July 29, and SS Jorge Polanco will be called up to join the team in a corresponding move. It's not set in stone that Polanco will return to the minors when Plouffe is back, according to manager Paul Molitor. SS Danny Santana has been struggling and hasn't started since the weekend. Polanco hit .284/.309/.352 with six doubles, six RBI and a stolen base in 22 games for Class AAA Rochester. His defense is a work in progress, as he had 24 errors in 83 minor league games.

Fantasy Tip: Eduardo Nunez started at the hot corner today for the Twins, and Miguel Sano (ankle) is healthy enough to play third base now, too, meaning Polanco is unlikely to have much fantasy value in the short term with Plouffe not expected to miss much time.

Twins | Trevor Plouffe on paternity list

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 22:54:27 -0700

The Minnesota Twins placed 3B Trevor Plouffe on the paternity list Tuesday, July 28, as his wife is expected to give birth to their first child Wednesday, July 29. SS Jorge Polanco was recalled from Class AAA Rochester to take his roster spot.

Fantasy Tip: Plouffe ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) will be sidelined until at least Friday, so FantasyScore players can avoid him for a few days.

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 22:09:48 -0700

Twins | Jorge Polanco gets first hit

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 18:16:23 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Jorge Polanco got his first hit of the season Wednesday, June 10, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco picked up the hit in his first major league plate appearance of the season. Polanco had four home runs and 11 stolen bases in 232 plate appearances at Class AA before being promoted, representing upside in several fantasy categories. Polanco is worth a look in AL-only leagues, while mixed-league owners should keep a close eye on the young shortstop. Polanco will represent excellent value on FantasyScore in his early going.

Twins | Jorge Polanco batting ninth against KC

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 14:47:10 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Jorge Polanco is starting at shortstop and batting ninth against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez Wednesday, June 10.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco is expected to be returned to the minors after the game Wednesday, so at this point, there is no reason to roster him in any format. With Class AA Chattanooga, he has a .312/.349/.436 slash line with 32 runs, four home runs, 26 RBI and 11 stolen bases through 232 plate appearances this season.

Twins | Jorge Polanco coming up

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 20:12:55 -0700

The Minnesota Twins will recall SS Jorge Polanco from Double-A Chattanooga from Double-A Chattanooga Wednesday, June 10, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco is a player FantasyScore players will want to remember in the coming days. He hit .315 for the Lookouts and could be a low-priced option with some upside.

Twins | Jorge Polanco struggling with defense

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 05:21:44 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Jorge Polanco made his 12th error of the season Saturday, June 6, for Class AA Chattanooga.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco is considered to be a better second baseman but the Twins want his future to be at shortstop due to Brian Dozier's presence at second base. It may be some time before fantasy owners get to consider Polanco, due to his horrid defensive play. It's a shame, because Polanco is hitting .309 for the season, with four home runs and 11 stolen bases. He is a clear offensive upgrade over Danny Santana.
