Pirates OF Gregory Polanco refreshed after taking time to rest
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Pirates outfielder Gregory Polanco had a very disappointing rookie season following his promotion to the majors in 2014. The highly touted prospect hit just .235 with a .650 OPS in 89 games.

Part of Polanco's struggles appeared to be from fatigue. In 2013, he totaled 171 games played, which included games in the minors and the Dominican winter league.

"I got my rest. I took a vacation," Polanco said of this offseason, per MLB.com. "I'm ready now. I feel refreshed and ready to play.

"That was my focus -- take some rest and prepare my body, prepare for spring training. That was my goal the last offseason."

Polanco, who was listed at 220 pounds last year, said Wednesday he is up to 235 pounds. He added he isn't worried about the added bulk slowing him down this year.

"I feel very good," Polanco said. "I gained weight and I maintained my speed, too. I'm ready, 100 percent ready. Every time I get a chance to play, I'm going to give it my 100 percent, for sure."

Pirates expecting Gregory Polanco to be starting right fielder
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

It appears the Pirates are preparing for Gregory Polanco to be the team's starting right fielder. General manager Neal Huntington said right field is "probably Polanco's job to keep" entering spring training, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

"We think Gregory Polanco has the chance to be a really good major-league player," Huntington said Tuesday at the second day of the winter meetings.

Polanco made his much-anticipated debut in 2014, but the 23-year-old outfielder hit a disappointing .235 with seven home runs, nine doubles and 33 RBI in 89 games.

Manager liking Gregory Polanco's approach
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Pirates outfielder Gregory Polanco, who was abruptly sent to the minors Aug. 25, has gotten only six plate appearances since returning Sept. 2 -- all as a reserve. He has three walks in those six appearances, though, and manager Clint Hurdle likes what he's seen.

"There's a lot more than just looking at the result," Hurdle told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "The fact that he's hung in and battled after taking two strikes is always a good takeaway. He stayed in there, stayed on the pitches. He's always shown a good eye and some discipline."

The team purchased the contract of infielder Chase d'Arnaud from Triple-A Indianapolis, and recalled pitchers Bobby LaFromboise , John Holdzkom, Jeff Locke and Casey Sadler , as well as outfielder Gregory Polanco from Triple-A.

Gregory Polanco to be added back to Pirates' roster this week
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said outfielder Gregory Polanco will be recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis in time for Tuesday's game against the Cardinals. Polanco has gone 4 for 19 (.211) with four singles, two walks and three strikeouts in five games since being demoted.

"After the four-day layoff where Travis (Snider) was swinging the bat so well and deserved to continue to play, Gregory looked a little rough," Huntington said, per MLB.com. "... Most importantly, he's been out and competing. We look forward to getting him back. If we're going to play October baseball, Gregory Polanco is going to have a hand in that."
