Prospect Highlights: Gregory Polanco’s Second Homer of the Year

Today in our “Prospect Highlights” series, which will probably soon be renamed “Polanco Highlights”, we have Gregory Polanco breaking out the nine iron to crush a two-run homer golf-swing style from last night’s game. It was the second homer of the year for Polanco, and was part of his 4-for-4 night at the plate.

Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.


Pirates Prospects has been independently owned and operated since 2009, entirely due to the support of our readers. The site is now completely free, funded entirely by user support. By supporting the site, you are supporting independent writers, one of the best Pittsburgh Pirates communities online, and our mission for the most complete Pirates coverage available.

By the time he comes up, our expectations for him are going to be completely unfair for a rookie.


and if he is even half as good as we hope, he is going to be an insane talent

Gotta love that left on left action.


Brings back memories of how Willie Stargell used to swing at that pitch location.

Travis Persinger

Well obviously we just need Polanco to learn to be a SS before say…..June 10th. Give or take a few days. I kid, I kid. But seriously.


Certainly won’t easy since he is a left handed thrower.

Ian Rothermund

You need to think outside the box. Obviously he would just need to switch to throwing right handed. Simple fix.
