Prospect Highlights: One Last Polanco Hit, Home Run From Tony Sanchez

Gregory Polanco made his Major League debut on Tuesday night and went 1-for-5 with a run scored. We have seen his highlights all season from Indianapolis and even made a top ten list yesterday showing each of his five tools. While he technically still has 125 at-bats in the Majors before he loses his prospect status, it is highly unlikely he will return to the minors. With that in mind, here is one last Prospect Highlight from this season, his first big league hit.

Speaking of players losing their prospect status. We use the 130 at-bat cut-off for prospect status and Tony Sanchez reached that right before he was sent down to the minors in late May. We are going to keep showing his Indianapolis highlights because he still looks like he will be a big part of the Pirates’ future. Here is his home run from Tuesday night.

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball.

When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.
