Twins' Jorge Polanco: Undergoes ankle surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco underwent surgery to remove a mild bone spur and a small bone chip on his right ankle Monday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

Reports emerged in early October that the shortstop had played hurt throughout the season, which could help explain his uninspiring .258/.304/.354 slash line. As it turns out, the injury was bad enough to require surgery. The procedure isn't expected to set Polanco back too much, though, as he'll start physical therapy in a week and should be ready for spring training.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Played hurt throughout season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco's ankle bothered him throughout the season more than previously reported, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

Polanco was healthy enough to start 53 games at shortstop, but he was playing at less than full strength for much of the year. That could help explain why his slash line fell from .295/.356/.485 in 2019 to .258/.304/.354 this season and gives some reason to believe he'll bounce back in 2021.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Back in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco (ankle) returns to the lineup Wednesday against Detroit, batting seventh and playing shortstop.

Polanco missed Tuesday's game with a sore ankle, though the issue was evidently a very minor one. Even with the Twins having already clinched a playing berth, the team evidently sees no reason to have him sit for the second straight day.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Nursing sore ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco is sitting out Tuesday's game against the Tigers with ankle soreness, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

It's unclear when the 27-year-old picked up the injury, but he's receiving the day off Tuesday as a result. Neal indicates the Twins hope he'll be back in the lineup Wednesday, but it also wouldn't be surprising to see them give him additional rest in front of Thursday's scheduled off day.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Smacks second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The shortstop yanked the first pitch he saw from Josh Lindblom down the right-field line and into the seats to open the scoring in the first inning. Polanco has had a solid start to the year, slashing .290/.319/.391 through 18 games with two homers, seven RBI and nine runs.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Goes yard Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Cardinals.

His second-inning blast off Carlos Martinez capped a five-run eruption that effectively decided the game, and gave Polanco his first homer of the year. The 27-year-old shortstop is now 6-for-17 to begin the season with four RBI and five runs through four games, and after a breakout 2019 he could be ready to solidify his spot as one of the key hitters in the Twins' formidable attack.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Homers in scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco hit a home run in Tuesday's scrimmage, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Polanco started spring training slowly after he required surgery on his right ankle in the offseason, but was able to play in spring training games before the shutdown. He looks ready for the start of the 60-game regular season from his play in summer camp. The ankle issue never forced Polanco to miss any action in 2019, as he suited up for a career-high 153 games and slashed an impressive .295/.356/.485 en route to earning his first All-Star nod.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Returns to infield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco (ankle) will start at shortstop and bat second Tuesday in the Twins' Grapefruit League game against the Tigers, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The Twins have brought Polanco along slowly this spring after he required surgery on his right ankle in the offseason. After Polanco made his Grapefruit League debut as a designated hitter Sunday, he'll now draw back into his normal position on the diamond, signaling that the Twins are comfortable with where he stands on the health front. Polanco is once again expected to occupy a prominent spot in one of the majors' more potent lineups in 2020.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Making spring debut at DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco (ankle) is batting third as the designated hitter in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The 26-year-old has been held out through the early portions of spring training while continuing his recovery from right ankle surgery in November, but he appears to be nearing full clearance. Polanco figures to return to the field at shortstop in the near future, but for now he'll stick with hitting and running the bases.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Nearing full clearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco (ankle) ran near 100 percent Saturday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Polanco is still awaiting clearance before fully going 100 percent, but he appears to be in the final stages of his recovery from the right ankle surgery he underwent in November. The 26-year-old seems likely to be able to be ready for Opening Day if cleared relatively soon, though it's worth keeping an eye on his status as spring training progresses.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Undergoes ankle procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco underwent surgery Nov. 22 to address a right ankle impingement and is expected to resume baseball activities in six weeks, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

The recovery timeline should allow Polanco to return to full health by the time spring training arrives. According to Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com, Polanco will be confined to a walking boot for the next couple weeks before resuming strengthening work for the ankle, which had been a chronic concern for the 26-year-old. The ankle issue never forced Polanco to miss any action in 2019, as he suited up for a career-high 153 games and slashed an impressive .2925/.356/.485 en route to earning his first All-Star nod.
