Twins' Jorge Polanco: Suspended 80 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco was suspended 80 games Sunday after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

With Polanco suspended for 80 games, Eduardo Escobar will likely be in line to serve as the Twins' starting shortstop when Opening Day arrives. Polanco has played in 13 games for the Twins this spring, over which he's gone 9-for-34 (.265) with a home run and a triple at the dish. Polanco will be eligible to return at the latter end of June after his suspension concludes.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Holds starting shortstop role heading into season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco is slated to enter the upcoming season as Minnesota's starting shortstop after his strong finish to the 2017 campaign, Patrick Reusse of the Star Tribune reports.

Polanco had a rocky showing during the 2017 season. His inconsistent performances led to him being withheld from the starting lineup for eight of Minnesota's 10 games at the latter end of July. However, he was stellar upon his return. Over his next 55 games, Polanco hit .316/.377/.553 with 10 home runs and 42 RBI. While there have been concerns about his defensive abilities, Polanco's dazzling performance to end the past campaign seems to have deemed him deserving of starting at shortstop once Opening Day arrives.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Gets Friday off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Tigers, according to Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com.

Polanco has started every game since Sept. 5 and played Thursday while several other Twins regulars rested, so manager Paul Molitor decided it was his turn for a day off Friday. Ehire Adrianza will get the start at shortstop in Polanco's place.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Hits go-ahead single in ninth Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and two RBI in Thursday's 4-2 win over the White Sox.

Polanco's big hit was actually a bases-loaded single off closer Kelvin Herrera, which drove in two runs to break a 2-2 tie with two outs in the top of the ninth inning. His .262/.314/.418 line is nothing special compared to most other hitters in Minnesota's lineup, yet Polanco continues to bat in the heart of the order. Putting him there paid off for manager Paul Molitor in this one, so don't expect the shortstop to be moved down anytime soon.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Stays sizzling with multi-homer effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco went 2-for-3 with a pair of solo homers, a walk and a steal in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the White Sox.

Polanco launched a solo shot off James Shields in the third inning to make it a 3-0 game and took Aaron Bummer deep in the seventh for his team's final run. The switch-hitting shortstop is slashing just .256/.304/.408 for the year, but a recent hot streak has elevated him to third in the batting order. Polanco's hit safely in 12 of 13 games since Aug. 17 while producing six long balls, 10 runs scored, 17 RBI and three steals over that stretch.
