Pirates | Gregory Polanco to start Tuesday

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 13:21:29 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco (hamstring) is batting second in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Junior Guerra Tuesday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco has missed the last five games because of his hamstring injury, so he should be considered a risky option by owners. Polanco is a great starting candidate when he is healthy and should be added to the lineup in most standard leagues. Owners in daily fantasy leagues may want to see him play in a game or two before considering him for their lineup.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco turning on pitches

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 10:02:20 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco has done a better job of turning on hard stuff inside this year, as he's slugging .632 on fastballs on the inner third of the plate in 2016, compared to .372 in his first two years. "Because of the length of his levers, he has to work hard to stay short and compact through the ball, and to stay inside the ball," general manager Neal Huntington said. "As he's done that more consistently, he's been more successful."

Fantasy Tip: Polanco is having a breakout season with a .296/.375/.515 slash line, 10 home runs, 44 RBI and nine stolen bases. He can do a little bit of everything and at his age (24), he should be a high-end fantasy outfielder for years to come.
