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.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rangers.

Polanco had gone 0-for-7 with a walk and six strikeouts in the last two games. Nick Gordon will make his major-league debut at second base and bat seventh.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Turns in big day at dish
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco went 2-for-3 with a double, a triple, two RBI, a walk and a run scored Monday against the Rangers.

Polanco drove in a run in the sixth on a triple to center, and he added an important insurance run in the eighth by doubling home another. Following his multi-hit performance, the 27-year-old is slashing .223/.286/.330 with one home run, 12 RBI and two stolen bases through 25 games.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Bows out of starting nine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.

Luis Arraez will fill in at second base for Polanco, who is sitting out for only the second time all season. Over 101 plate appearances, Polanco has managed a weak .209/.267/.286 slash line. More days off could be in his future if he's unable to catch fire at the plate sooner or later.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Clubs two-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run and an additional run scored during Wednesday's 10-2 win at Cleveland.

The 27-year-old received his first off day of the season Tuesday and rejoined the lineup Wednesday with his first homer of 2021. Polanco has a .193/.258/.265 slash line with three doubles, two stolen bases, 10 RBI and 11 runs scored through 22 games.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Getting first day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against Cleveland.

Polanco will head to the bench for the first time all season, breaking a streak of 21 consecutive starts. The day off will give Polanco a chance to reset after he followed up a season-best four-hit effort April 21 in Oakland with a 1-for-12 showing over his subsequent four games.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Four hits in Wednesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco went 4-for-6 with two runs, an RBI and a stolen base in Wednesday's 13-12 extra-inning loss to the A's.

All four hits were singles, but Polanco still got his share of the production in a wild affair. The infielder has struggled to get into a groove at the plate to begin the season, but Wednesday's performance boosted his slash line to .212/.274/.258.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Plates two runs in Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco went 1-for-3 with two RBI in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Red Sox.

Polanco returned to the lineup after receiving rest Monday and made his presence felt, as he plated the team's lone runs of the contest with a two-run single that scored Ryan Jeffers and JT Riddle. The shortstop might have been Minnesota's lone source of offense in this game, but he has endured a tough start to the season and has recorded hits in just five of his 11 contests to date.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Receives rest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Red Sox.

Minnesota is opening its four-game series against Boston with a day game, so Polanco will sit out in what appears to be a pre-planned rest day. Luis Arraez will fill in at the keystone for Polanco, who started in each of the Twins' first nine games. The 27-year-old has endured a brutal start to the campaign, going 5-for-40 with zero home runs, a stolen base, five runs and three RBI.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Gets turn at shortstop
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco will start at shortstop and bat second Tuesday against the Tigers, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

With manager Rocco Baldelli extending Andrelton Simmons a day off, Polanco will move off second base for the first time this season after having made all four of his starts at the position. Polanco has played a small part in Minnesota's 23-run outburst between its last two games, going 2-for-9 with a walk while scoring three times and driving in one.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Rejoins lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco (thigh) will start at second base and bat cleanup in Sunday's spring game against the Orioles.

The 27-year-old has been sidelined the past few days by left adductor tightness, but he'll return to Grapefruit League action Sunday. Barring a setback, Polanco shouldn't have any issues being available for Opening Day.

March 20, 2021 03:32 PM
Twins' Jorge Polanco: Gets back on practice field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco hit and took grounders Friday in his first action since suffering a left adductor injury Tuesday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

The adductor is a muscle by the groin/thigh area. It's a good sign that Polanco is already taking part in baseball activities and the Twins have said the injury isn't severe. Still, his status for Opening Day should be monitored over the next week. Luis Arraez would likely take over everyday duty at second base if Polanco is sidelined.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Day-to-day with adductor tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco left Tuesday's game against the Pirates with left adductor tightness and is considered day-to-day, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The adductor is a muscle by the groin/thigh area, and if the tightness turns out to be a strain, Polanco's status for Opening Day would be in doubt. For now, it sounds like a day-to-day issue. His injury opens up more playing time for Luis Arraez in the short term.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Hot start this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco went 2-for-3 in Sunday's spring training win over Boston. He's hitting .333 (6-for-18) this spring with five walks and one strikeout.

Polanco has moved to second base after the Twins signed Andrelton Simmons. Polanco has had some ups and downs at second base, but he should improve as he adjusts to the new position, which he played frequently in the minors. Polanco is showing his bat could bounce back from last year's subpar performance (.258 with a .658 OPS) simply from improved health. Polanco underwent surgery in October to remove a bone spur and a small bone chip from his right ankle, which bothered him last year.

Twins' Jorge Polanco: Shifting to second base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco (ankle) will move to second base for 2021 after the Twins signed Andrelton Simmons on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

Polanco has primarily played shortstop since making his big-league debut in 2014, but he did play second base during his time in the minors. Simmons is joining the team on a one-year, $10.5 million deal, and it's no surprise he'll be taking over at shortstop as one of the best defenders in the league, regardless of position. As a result of the signing, Luis Arraez is also expected to move into a utility role for Minnesota. Polanco underwent surgery in October to remove a bone spur and a small bone chip from his right ankle, but he's expected to be ready for the start of spring training.

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.

September 22, 2020 09:08 PM
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.

September 22, 2020 05:52 PM
Twins' Jorge Polanco: Riding pine Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Polanco isn't starting Tuesday against the Tigers.

Polanco recorded hits in each of the past two contests, but he's struck out seven times over the last four games. He'll retreat to the bench as Ehire Adrianza starts at shortstop.
