Latest News
Don't be so quick to drop Gregory Polanco
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/25/14) Fantasy owners were concerned about Gregory Polanco well before Monday's news of his demotion. He had started just one of the team's last four games, replaced by a red-hot Travis Snider.

Of course, most had assumed it was just a short-term switch -- a chance for the Pirates to take advantage of Snider's hot streak and give the slumping Polanco time to clear his head -- and even now, I'm not so convinced it isn't. Getting sent to the minors this time of year isn't the big deal it normally is. Rosters expand in less than a week. Rest assured, he'll be back.

I'm thinking the Pirates just wanted to give Polanco a chance to work through his struggles, but not in a way that might impact their playoff chances. Manager Clint Hurdle told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette over the weekend they were working with Polanco to fix a few things.

"I think we're trying to show him the fact once his front foot hits, that his hands are set in a position. There's been, I think, a little more movement than necessary with his hands," Hurdle said.

Those changes can't take effect unless he gets a chance to implement them, though. As long as Polanco shows improvement over the next few days at Triple-A, I think the Pirates will switch back to him once Travis Snider cools off. And you'll want to own him in Fantasy when they do. For all his struggles, he has still averaged more Head-to-Head points per game than Khris Davis this year.

Pirates make several roster moves Monday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/25/14) The Pirates announced a few roster moves prior to Monday's game against the Cardinals. The team has recalled and reinstated infielder Clint Barmes from the 15-day disabled list and designated infielder Jayson Nix for assignment. They have also officially selected the contract of outfielder Jose Tabata from Triple-A Indianapolis and optioned outfielder Gregory Polanco to Indianapolis. 
Gregory Polanco optioned to Triple-A
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(8/25/14) FOXSports.com reports that Pirates outfielder Gregory Polanco was sent down to Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday. Polanco had been the Pirates' primary right fielder since his June callup, starting 60 games there.

The rookie had recently fallen on hard times, getting just one hit in his last 30 at-bats. He was held out for four consecutive starts, as Travis Snider took over in right field before Polanco got the call to start Sunday's game at the Brewers.

Polanco could return as soon as Sept. 1, when major league rosters expand. He is batting .241 with six home runs, 41 runs scored, 30 RBI and 12 stolen bases.

Travis Snider raking while Gregory Polanco learning
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/23/14) Travis Snider has continued to take away at-bats from far-more-ballyhooed Pirates rookie Gregory Polanco.

Despite an 0-for-5 night on Friday, Snider has earned the playing time. He owned an 11-game hitting streak previously in which he had six multi-hit games, scored seven runs and rose his batting average from .242 to .277. Polanco, on the other hand, has just one hit in his last 27 at-bats.

"Snider's been torrid," Clift Hurdle told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Friday. "Thirty-five games left, another day, another opportunity for Polanco to get some work done. The good side of it is when we've  had some time to settle him down a little bit, when he has been back plugged in he's been very fresh and usually shows a lot of improvement."

Hurdle added that he wants Polanco to revert to the swing that proved successful upon his promotion from the minors. He began the season on an 11-game hitting streak that vaulted his average to .365 and allowed him to score 11 runs.

"I think we're trying to show him the fact once his front foot hits, that his hands are set in a position," Hurdle said. "There's been, I think, a little more movement than necessary with his hands. ... Sometimes you don't know whether it's fatigue, whether it's anxiety, whether it's the ptiches, but they're pitching him up a lot more. That's no secret. He's doing a lot more up-chasing than he had done when he first got here."

Gregory Polanco benched Wednesday against southpaw
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/20/14) A matchup Wednesday against a left-hander, against whom Pirates outfielder Gregory Polanco has struggled mightily, has him out of the lineup.

Polanco has just 12 hits in 77 at-bats against southpaws with a stat line of .156/.l193/.254.
