Shortstop - Minnesota Twins
Date of Birth: July 5, 1993 (27 years old)
Twins' Jorge Polanco: Undergoes ankle surgery
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
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 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 presumably gives some reason to believe he'll bounce back in 2021.
Twins' Jorge Polanco: Riding pine Tuesday
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.
