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."

Pirates add six to expanded roster
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Pirates added six players to the active roster Tuesday, as part of their September roster expansion.

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."

Don't be so quick to drop Gregory Polanco
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

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

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.
