Gregory Polanco Will Have Shoulder Surgery

The Pittsburgh Pirates announced to the media on Wednesday afternoon that outfielder Gregory Polanco will undergo surgery today for an acute shoulder dislocation. He is in the process of that surgery now and they will provide more information when it’s available. They would not speculate on possible recovery time at this point.

Polanco injured the shoulder on an awkward slide last week. He also injured his left knee on the same slide, suffering a significant bone bruise. That particular injury requires 6-8 weeks of rehab.

The local  media received updates after today’s game in St Louis about other players currently injured. From Adam Berry of
