Gregory Polanco 2018 Outlook

Recommended Posts

Those altitude masks are so ridiculous. With that said, Polanco is going to be a beast this season. Just need 150 games from him.

The only negative so far about his improved approach (swinging less, working deeper into counts, and laying off breaking stuff) is that he is K-ing a bit more than usual K% is up and SwStr% is up, but I'll take it if this is the result. The improved quality of contact should help to offset some of the BA concerns that would come with K%. Also, have to love the 15.8% walk rate right now, but that could still change.

Hovering around the Mendoza Line all of a sudden.

 

Good news is his BABIP is currently .182 so there should be some correction in store.

Do we think he gets a shot to lead off now that Harrison is out?

I hope not. 2nd is pretty much one of the best spots to be in.

No, they'll hit Frazier leadoff.

his one good week seems like such a distant memory.

 

this guy is straight trash.

Career high BB% and Hard hit % with a .200BABIP. He's fine. 

 

Vent and rant thread is open though.

Any reason he consistently seems to run low BABIPs each year? It's strange because he's fast and doesn't hit tonnes of FBs.

 

Thinking this might be the time to make an offer for him, but I do wonder about the BABIP and steals.

I think he’ll start heating up soon.  Just in a mini funk right now.  All players go through it during the season(even Mike Trout).

A 2 year long funk. I'm sure he'll snap right out of it

Yeah I have been on the fence to drop him myself.

I was close today for waivers but decided to give him one more week, or at least till Friday when my next wavier claims go through.
