Pirates | Gregory Polanco out vs. Miami

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:30:23 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco is not in the lineup against Miami Marlins left-handed SP Chris Narveson Wednesday, Aug. 26. 3B Josh Harrison is starting in right field and hitting leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Harrison ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has been quiet since his return from the DL, but this is the exact type of matchup that could get him going -- a soft-tossing, hittable lefty. Harrison has good marks against southpaws this year, too (.292/.356/.385).

Pirates | Gregory Polanco starting vs. Reds

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:03:34 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco (knee) is playing right field and batting first against Cincinnati Reds SP David Holmberg Thursday, July 30. Polanco was removed in the fourth inning of the game Wednesday, July 29, against the Minnesota Twins due to discomfort in his left knee.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) might not be as speedy on the base paths due to the knee discomfort, so his FantasyScore value takes a hit Thursday, and he should be viewed as a high-risk, high-reward option for contests. Seasonal owners should be happy to see him right back in the lineup, though.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco wins game

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 23:26:40 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco's 10th-inning single gave his team a 6-5 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday, July 12.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) gave his team a big lift. Even though he has a .231-3-21 line, Polanco has 17 stolen bases so his speed has been a big factor. He doesn't carry much value in FantasyScore other than speed, but his intangibles have helped Pittsburgh.
