Gregory Polanco to get a day off Tuesday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said rookie outfielder Gregory Polanco will receive a day off Tuesday against the Diamondbacks. He's started 19 straight games since his promotion in mid-June.

"He's been out there, been through a lot," Hurdle said Sunday, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "A lot of energy had to be spent, not just on the field but with all the other demands. Just the move up, emotionally, as well as just going out and playing the game. So it will be a good time for him to catch his breath, as well."

Fantasy Analysis | 1402428196
Expectations for Gregory Polanco
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Well ... here we are. After weeks of anticipation, Gregory Polanco is in the big leagues and ready to contribute for the Pirates. So then, what does that mean for your Fantasy team?

I've said before I'm hoping for numbers like the ones Andrew McCutchen put up as a rookie way back in 2009. I'll save you the trouble of looking: He hit .286 with 12 homers, 22 steals and an .836 OPS in 108 games. The Pirates have only 99 games to go, making those totals less likely for Polanco, but if he's as good on a per-game basis, he'll be a must-start in Fantasy the rest of the way.

And again, it's realistic -- a best-case scenario, maybe, but realistic considering Polanco has comparable speed and plate discipline. He was actually better in the minors than McCutchen was prior to his promotion. He still hasn't peaked in terms of power, but clearly, McCutchen hadn't either, and it didn't stop him from wreaking havoc.

Now, it's possible if Polanco stumbles out of the gate and Josh Harrison continues to rake filling in at second base for Neil Walker, the Pirates could send Polanco down for more seasoning whenever Walker is ready to return. But the way most people perceive it, Polanco was overdue for a promotion anyway. The Pirates were just waiting for an opportunity such as this one to pull the trigger.
