  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Hits game-winning solo shot

    Polanco went 3-for-4 with a solo homer in Saturday's 1-0 win over Oakland.

    Polanco matched Oakland's hit total and had more hits than the rest of his teammates combined while providing all of the day's scoring. His homer was a two-out shot off James Kaprielian, chasing Kaprielian from the game. Polanco is now hitting .232/.325/.384 with three homers through 27 games.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Drives in four runs

    Polanco went 4-for-5 with two doubles, four RBI and a run scored during Sunday's 9-3 win over the Rays.

    Polanco entered the contest with only two hits over his previous five games, but he erupted for four hits to power Minnesota's offense during the series finale in Tampa Bay. It's been a slow start to 2022 for the 28-year-old, and he now has a .195/.303/.338 slash line with two home runs, 12 RBI and nine runs through 21 games.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Homers, plates four in win

    Polanco went 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBI in Monday's win over the Red Sox.

    Polanco's first hit of the day came in the top of the third inning when he homered off Rich Hill, driving in teammate Gilberto Celestino. He later added a two-RBI single in the eighth, scoring Gary Sanchez and Luis Arraez. The homer was his second of the season and the two-hit performance was his third multi-hit effort of the 2022 campaign.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Racking up free passes

    Polanco went 0-for-3 with a walk in Sunday's 8-1 loss to the Red Sox.

    Polanco has produced only one hit over his last four games, but he's accrued four walks over that stretch to get on base at a .313 clip. The switch-hitting infielder's walk rate currently sits at a career-high 16.7 percent, but a career-worst 30.6 percent strikeout rate has played a large part in his average sitting at a paltry .200 through nine games. He'll be back in the lineup for Monday's Patriots' Day game in Boston, batting leadoff while manning second base, according to Dan Hayes of The Athletic.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Keeps prominent lineup spot in 2022

    Polanco will start at second base and hit cleanup in Saturday's game against the Mariners, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    While slotting third in the order Friday with Seattle bringing lefty Robbie Ray to the hill, Polanco went 0-for-3 with a walk in the Twins' 2-1 loss. Seattle will send a right-hander in Logan Gilbert to the hill Saturday, but Polanco will remain locked into a prominent spot in the order. Polanco's inclusion in the heart of the order versus both lefties and righties comes as little surprise following a career-best 2021 campaign in which he hit .269 with 33 home runs, 98 RBI, 97 runs and 11 stolen bases.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Homers in first inning

    Polanco went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Royals.

    The Twins had plenty of success at the plate in the first inning Sunday, and Polanco put the team on the board with his three-run blast with no outs in the frame. The 28-year-old closed out the year with hits in eight of his last 10 appearances, and he slashed .269/.323/.503 with 33 home runs, 98 RBI, 97 runs and 11 stolen bases during the 2021 campaign.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Ignites offense early Wednesday

    Buxton went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Tigers.

    After Luis Arraez and Byron Buxton opened the game with singles off Detroit starter Casey Mize, Polanco stepped to the plate and launched his 32nd homer of the season. It snapped a nine-game homerless funk for Polanco, who is just 6-for-37 (.162) over his last 10 contests. Despite the recent rough patch, Polanco has been terrific in 2021, hitting .271 with an .832 OPS while establishing career highs in homers and RBI (94). He's also thrown in 11 stolen bases (17 attempts) for good measure.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Scores lone run in loss

    Polanco went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run in Saturday's 6-1 loss to Toronto.

    The infielder singled, stole third and scored on a sacrifice fly by Mitch Garver in the first inning, but that was the extent of Minnesota's run production. Polanco is in a bit of a skid to end the season, going just 3-for-26 across his last seven games. He's still put together a strong .271/.325/.505 slash line with career highs in home runs (31) and RBI (91) while adding 93 runs scored and 10 stolen bases through 146 contests.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Sits amid slump

    Polanco is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs.

    Polanco has fallen into an 0-for-13 slump at the dish while striking out seven times in the last three games, so he'll be extended a mental break in the series finale. Luis Arraez checks in at second base for Polanco, who should rejoin the lineup Thursday against the Blue Jays.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Homers in three-hit game

    Polanco went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run in Friday's 7-3 win over Toronto.

    The 28-year-old had the first long ball in a back-to-back-to-back sequence for Minnesota in the third inning, as Josh Donaldson and Miguel Sano followed up with solo shots. Polanco is up to 31 homers this year, seven of which have come in 16 games this month. For the year, the infielder is slashing .279/.332/.522 with 90 RBI, 90 runs scored and 10 stolen bases in what's been a career-best year in the power department.
