Polanco went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Astros.

Polanco hit a two-run home run off Luis Garcia in the fifth inning to lengthen the Twins' lead. In addition, he added a pair of singles and a third RBI in the game. The 27-year-old is slashing .251/.320/.447 with nine homers, 30 RBI and a team-leading 33 runs scored. He also has three stolen bases this season. Saturday was his fifth multi-hit game in June.

Polanco homered in the third inning off Gerrit Cole and he hit the foul pole in the ninth inning off Brooks Kriske. He has eight long balls this season, but four have come in the last nine games.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Homers in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs scored in Friday's 14-5 loss to the Royals.

Polanco's home run didn't mean much since the Twins were already down 13-1, but it was his second straight multi-hit game and he now has hits in six of his last eight contests. Overall, the 27-year-old is slashing .243/.318/.418 with six homers, 24 RBI, 29 runs scored and three stolen bases to go along with a 20:37 BB:K. He has not been hitting the ball as well in comparison to recent years, but at least Polanco is taking his walks. He owns a 9.6 percent walk rate, which is on pace to be the highest he's had in a full season since entering the league in 2014.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Clocks clutch homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco went 1-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Monday's 3-2 win over the Orioles in 10 innings.

After putting the Twins on the board in the third inning with a fielder's choice grounder that scored the game's first run, Polanco supplied some important insurance in extra innings. The Twins took a 2-1 lead when Rob Refsnyder scored on a wild pitch early in the inning, but Polanco's two-out solo shot held up as the difference after the Orioles came through with a run in the bottom half of the 10th. Polanco has now produced four extra-base hits (two home runs and two doubles) over his last six starts.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Starting job reopens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Homers in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Tuesday against the Orioles.

Polanco was absent from the lineup for four consecutive games prior to Tuesday due to an ankle injury. However, he homered off Dean Kremer in his first at-bat of the contest for his fifth long ball of the season. Despite the encouraging effort, Polanco has failed to record multiple hits in any of his last 10 starts, during which time he has only six knocks in 36 at-bats.

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

Polanco (ankle) is batting fifth and playing second base in Tuesday's game against the Orioles.

His ankle appears to be fine, as he pinch ran in Monday's contest and now returns to the starting lineup Tuesday against righty Dean Kremer. The switch hitter has struggled at the plate this year, but especially against right-handed pitchers -- Polanco has just a .584 OPS in 113 plate appearances against righties.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Gets back on field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 Twins would employ him that way if the ankle was a major concern.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Productive at plate Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco went 2-for-3 with a home run, a double, two walks, two RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 7-3 win over Detroit.

Polanco put together just his second game this season in which he reached base four times, and his first in which he drew multiple walks. The 27-year-old infielder is up to two home runs, 14 RBI, 15 runs scored and two stolen bases through 119 plate appearances. He still has a career-worst slash line of .219/.294/.352 in 29 games, but he's shown signs of improvement with multiple hits in three of the last seven contests.
