      Twins' Jorge Polanco: Starting job reopens

      Jorge Polanco will start at second base and bat second Wednesday against the Orioles, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.Before he returned Tuesday from a four-game absence due to an ankle injury, Polanco appeared in danger of slipping into more of a part-time role with Minnesota lineup nearly at full strength minus Byron Buxton (hip). However, with Luis Arraez (shoulder) joining Buxton on the injured list Wednesday, Polanco looks to have a fairly clear path to an everyday job. Polanco will likely need to improve on his middling .232/.305/.381 slash line to ensure he remains a regular in the starting nine once Arraez is back in the fold.

      Twins' Jorge Polanco: Gets back on field

      Jorge Polanco (right ankle) appeared as a pinch runner and played second base in Monday's win over Baltimore. "We prefer him to feel nothing, but I think he's going to be OK to play going forward," manager Rocco Baldelli told, MLB.com.Polanco did not start for a fourth consecutive game due to a sore ankle, which is concerning given that he's had ankle injuries the past two seasons. Last season, he played with a bone spur and a small bone chip in his right ankle which ultimately required offseason surgery. However, it's promising that he was able to appear as a pinch runner, as it doesn't seem likely the Minnesota Twins would employ him that way if the ankle was a major concern.
