Player Outlook
Jorge Polanco again battled durability issues in 2023, missing significant time due to ankle, knee and hamstring injuries, but he registered a .789 OPS with 14 home runs across 80 games when healthy. Polanco missed the final month of 2022 with a knee injury and his rehab then stalled during spring training postponing his debut until late April. He then missed about eight weeks between two IL stints for a strained left hamstring. When healthy, he had similar underlying metrics as last season with a strong walk rate (10.5%), a slightly better hard hit rate (40.6% to 38.7%), exit velocity (88.4 to 89.0) and Barrel rate (13.8 to 10.2). Defensive metrics were a mixed bag for evaluating his defense, but he's still seen as a good defender when healthy. He also played 15 games at third base when the Twins were thin at the hot corner, which could give him added position eligibility in some formats. Polanco has decent power for a middle infielder and good command of the strike zone, so he can still produce like his All-Star season when healthy. However, he may be a significant health risk since he's missed significant time to injury each of the last two seasons.

  • Mariners' Jorge Polanco: Out Wednesday with hamstring injury

    Polanco (hamstring) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports. Polanco will take a seat for the second day in a row while he manages a tight right hamstring. The Mariners are viewing him as day-to-day, but a trip to the injured list could become more realistic if Polanco is still not available to start coming out of Thursday's team off day.

  • Mariners' Jorge Polanco: Breather Friday

    Polanco is not in the starting lineup for Friday's contest with the Athletics, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports.

  • Mariners' Jorge Polanco: Plates pair in Wednesday's loss

    Polanco went 2-for-5 with a pair of RBI singles in a loss to Atlanta on Wednesday. Polanco's contributions ended up leading to the only runs of the afternoon for the Mariners, who were otherwise stymied by Chris Sale and a quartet of relievers. Despite the lack of extra-base hits, Polanco's performance was impactful from an individual perspective, as it extended his on-base streak to six games and qualified as the veteran's second straight two-RBI tally. Polanco's .181/.317/.295 slash line naturally has no shortage of room for improvement, but perhaps his current surge is the start of a long-awaited breakout in his first Seattle campaign.

  • Mariners' Jorge Polanco: Leaves yard Tuesday

    Polanco went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Atlanta. Polanco opened up the scoring with a two-run shot to right off Reynaldo Lopez in the third inning. Polanco had not driven in any runs since he last homered back on April 15. He's now reached base in five straight games, though he has struck out seven times over his last 12 at-bats. It's been a very slow campaign at the dish so far for Polanco, who's now slashing .170/.314/.290 with four homers, 10 RBI, 11 runs and a 20:37 BB:K in 121 plate appearances.

  • Mariners' Jorge Polanco: Contributes stolen base Wednesday

    Polanco went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in a loss to the Rangers on Wednesday. Polanco's struggles at the plate continued for the most part, with his average now sitting at a paltry .175 through 99 plate appearances. However, the veteran also sports a surprisingly solid .333 on-base percentage that's largely the result of his 18.9 percent walk rate. The free pass he drew Wednesday also led to his first stolen base of the campaign, and the combination of Polanco's career-low .234 BABIP and above-average 24.0 percent line-drive rate seems to imply his luck when putting the ball in play should start to turn soon.

  • Mariners' Jorge Polanco: Sitting for Game 1

    Polanco is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Rockies, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports. It's the first time out of the lineup this season for Polanco, who is 0-for-10 with four walks and three strikeouts over his past three games. Dylan Moore is starting at the keystone, with Polanco likely to rejoin the starting nine for Game 2.

  • Mariners' Jorge Polanco: Homers in second straight game

    Polanco went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run, two walks and three total runs in Monday's 9-3 victory versus Cincinnati. Polanco helped the Mariners get off to a fast start with his three-run shot off Frankie Montas in the first inning. It was the second homer in as many days for Polanco, and he's drive in five runs over the two-game span. The veteran infielder could be picking things up after a slow overall start to the season -- he's slashing just .203/.338/.356 with a 32.4 percent strikeout rate through 71 plate appearances.

  • Mariners' Jorge Polanco: Goes yard in loss

    Polanco went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk in Sunday's loss to the Cubs. Polanco's two-run blast in the sixth were the only runs and the only extra-base hit the Mariners were able to muster up on the afternoon. Polanco now has two long balls on the year which also happen to be his only extra-base hits on the season so far. He's gotten off to a sluggish start with his new ballclub, slashing .196/.318/.304 with five RBI, three runs scored and a 9:22 BB:K in 66 plate appearances.

  • Mariners' Jorge Polanco: Launches first homer

    Polanco went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, an additional run scored and an additional RBI during Saturday's 5-3 win over the Brewers. Polanco is still hitting just .176 on the season but has shown signs of life lately with a hit in each of his past five games, though he's gone just 5-for-20 during that stretch. The 30-year-old is still batting out of the No. 3 spot for now, but he may need to get on track soon to retain that slot.

  • Mariners' Jorge Polanco: Struggling early in season

    Polanco went 1-for-4 in a loss to the Guardians on Wednesday and is hitting just .115 (4-for-26) with no extra-base hits over his first seven games. The veteran's Mariners tenure could hardly be off to a more inauspicious start, and compounding the concern is the fact Polanco has also generated an alarming 42.9 percent strikeout rate in that sample of 28 plate appearances. The 30-year-old posted a career-high 25.7 percent strikeout rate with the Twins last season as well, so it remains to be seen if the poor contact rate early this season ultimately proves to be an extension of that troublesome pattern. Polanco does now have a single in three consecutive contests, a mildly encouraging development after he opened the campaign going 1-for-14 in his first four contests.

  • Mariners' Jorge Polanco: Belts pair of homers Sunday

    Polanco went 2-for-2 with a solo home run, a grand slam, a hit-by-pitch and an additional run in a Cactus League win over the Giants on Sunday. The veteran's blistering bat continued to pay dividends, with Polanco's standout day propelling his spring average and OPS to .500 and 1.000, respectively. The 30-year-old has primarily been held back by injury and dips in playing time the last two seasons in Minnesota, but he recorded a career-high 33 homers and 98 RBI as recently as 2021.

  • Mariners' Jorge Polanco: Bat heating up in spring

    Polanco is hitting .400 (4-for-10) with a double, two RBI, four walks and a run across six Cactus League games. The noteworthy offseason acquisition has pair of two-hit efforts in his last three games after starting off Cactus League play 0-for-3 over his first three exhibitions. Polanco is penciled in as the everyday second baseman and can also fill in at the hot corner. The veteran switch hitter could be a candidate to hit the 25-homer threshold if good health prevails, considering he belted 30 homers over 184 games his last two seasons in Minnesota.

  • Mariners' Jorge Polanco: Dealt to Seattle

    Polanco was traded from the Twins to the Mariners on Monday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. It's unclear as to what the Twins are getting in return for Polanco, but Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic states there are four players, two major leaguers and two minor leaguers, headed to Minnesota as part of the deal. This is a huge upgrade for the Mariners at second base, and the 30-year-old will also be available to slot in at the hot corner and in the DH spot as needed. Polanco slashed .255/.335/.454 with 14 homers, 48 RBI, four stolen bases and 38 runs scored over 80 games a season ago with Minnesota.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Club option exercised

    The Twins exercised Polanco's $10.5 million club option for 2024 on Thursday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. Polanco again battled durability issues in 2023, missing significant time due to ankle, knee and hamstring injuries, but he registered a .789 OPS with 14 home runs across 80 games (343 plate appearances) when healthy. Minnesota could potentially look to trade the 30-year-old infielder this winter and install Edouard Julien at second base, but exercising the option was likely an easy early-offseason decision for the AL Central champs.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Back in action for Game 1

    Polanco (ankle) is starting at third base and batting second in Tuesday's Game 1 of their AL Wild Card Series versus the Blue Jays. Polanco missed the final two games of the regular season with a right ankle injury, but he's ready to go for the Twins' playoff opener. With Royce Lewis limited to designated hitter duties as he returns from a hamstring injury, Polanco is in line to serve as Minnesota's regular third baseman.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Still out Sunday

    Polanco (ankle) is not in Sunday's lineup against the Rockies. He was pulled from Friday's game with right ankle soreness and will miss a second game in a row with the Twins already locked into the postseason. It's unclear if Polanco will be ready to go for the playoffs on Tuesday.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Removed with sore ankle

    Polanco is considered day-to-day after exiting Friday's game at Colorado due to right ankle soreness, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. Polanco tweaked his ankle on a fourth-inning strikeout, though he was able to gut it out until the bottom of the sixth. Donovan Solano slid over from first base to second base with Alex Kirilloff entering to play first. This is the same ankle Polanco has twice had surgically repaired, but it sounds like he could be available as early as Saturday for the AL Central-champion Twins.
