Pirates, OF Gregory Polanco came close to seven-year guarantee
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Pirates and outfielder Gregory Polanco were on the verge of a seven-year guarantee, but got hung up on the option years again, reports CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Per the report, Polanco met with some teammates for advice, and they didn't necessarily advise Polanco to rush to sign a long deal with team options.

Polanco is hitting .200 (7 for 35) with a walk, two stolen bases, two doubles and two RBI in eight games.

Pirates outfielder Starling Marte out of the lineup Tuesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle has decided to go with Corey Hart in right field Tuesday and moved Gregory Polanco to left, pushing Starling Marte to the bench, the team announced.

Hart has made one start so far this season and is hitting .500 in six at-bats. He is a career .269 hitter while playing right field and .268 while batting fifth.

"He's just being challenged right now," Hurdle said. "We've seen Starling get in some funks. He's been able to work his way out of them. One of the ways you help him is just to sit him down, give him a chance to catch his breath."

 He is hitting just .115 with 14 strikeouts in 26 at-bats this season. The Pirates are currently the favorites (-120) over the Tigers Tuesday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen is back in the lineup Sunday and batting third in his team's matchup with the Brewers.

The Pirates are resting third baseman Josh Harrison Sunday, with Jung Ho Kang making the start at the hot corner. Gregory Polanco is leading off for the Pirates Sunday.

The Pirates are underdogs (+105) against the Brewers Sunday.

Pirates discussing new contract with OF Gregory Polanco
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

The Pirates and outfielder Gregory Polanco have begun negotiating a new contract a week before the season is set to begin, reports CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. 

The two sides previously discussed a deal in the seven-year, $50 million range before talks stalled. It's uncertain if the Pirates and Polanco will work out a deal before the start of the season. 

Polanco hit .235 with seven home runs and 33 RBI in 2014. He turned the initial offer down due to low prices on his option years. The goal for both sides is to work something out so that negotiations don't carry into the season.

Pirates' Gregory Polanco wants to improve bat speed in 2015
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Pirates outfielder Gregory Polanco said he hopes to speed up his hands at the plate in order to get better results this season, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review on Saturday.

Polanco revealed that when he's swinging, he normally stops his hands when it passes over home plate. But late last season (particularly in August and September), he said that fatigue led to his hands stopping behind the plate, and not over it.

"My hands weren't as fast as in the beginning. I started getting tired," Polanco said. "I was missing a lot.

"If you see my at-bats in September, you can see I was missing a lot. ... I was taking a lot of walks. My eyes, I can see the ball good, but my hands were late."

Polanco made his much-anticipated debut in 2014, and slashed .247/.317/.348 through June 10 through July 31. He batted .212, with a .291 on-base percentage over 99 at-bats in August and September.
