  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Swats solo shot

    Polanco went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Guardians on Saturday.

    Polanco led off the contest with a 413-foot blast, but Minnesota didn't manage much more offense the rest of the way. The long ball was his third hit since returning June 1 from a stay on the injured list, and all three knocks have gone for extra bases (two doubles, one homer). Polanco has been steady when healthy enough to play this season, posting a .278/.316/.500 slash line, five home runs, 16 RBI and one steal over 26 contests.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: At leadoff in return

    Polanco (hamstring) is batting leadoff in his return to the lineup Thursday night against the Guardians.

    Polanco was activated from the injured list Thursday morning after missing around two weeks with a left hamstring strain. He's produced a solid .811 OPS in 23 games this year when healthy, mostly hitting near the middle of the Twins' batting order. Thursday marks his first appearance out of the leadoff spot in 2023.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Comes off IL

    The Twins reinstated Polanco (hamstring) from the 10-day injured list Thursday.

    Polanco wound up missing just a little over the minimum amount of time with a strained left hamstring. He bypassed a minor-league rehab assignment and should slide back into his normal role as the Twins' everyday second baseman. Minnesota optioned Edouard Julien to Triple-A St. Paul in a corresponding move.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Returning Thursday

    The Twins will activate Polanco (hamstring) from the 10-day injured list Thursday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    A strained left hamstring sent Polanco to the injured list May 20, and he will return after spending little more than the minimum time on the IL. The 29-year-old infielder was seeing the ball extremely well prior to getting injured, slashing .316/.435/.737 with two homers and three RBI across his last five games. His return will send Edouard Julien back to Triple-A St. Paul.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Continues running program

    Polanco (hamstring) was spotted taking part in sprinting and running drills on the field Sunday at Target Field, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    Polanco was eligible to return from the 10-day injured list Sunday, but he doesn't look like he'll require too much more time beyond the minimum before being ready to return. The second baseman has now been able to run on multiple occasions since landing on the IL and has continued to take batting practice. Edouard Julien will likely hold down the fort at second base until Polanco is deemed ready for activation, possibly later this week.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Begins hitting

    Polanco (hamstring) hit on the field before Friday's game, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    It's the first sign of progress for Polanco since he went on the injured list May 20. His timeline to return isn't clear, but it doesn't look like he'll be ready when eligible May 30. He'll likely need to show he can run at full speed before the Twins decide on the next steps.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Placed on 10-day IL

    Polanco (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    After tweaking his hamstring Wednesday against the Dodgers, Polanco will now be sidelined for at least the next 10 days. The infielder will be eligible to return May 30. In the meantime, Edouard Julien was called up from Triple-A St. Paul to replace him on the major-league roster.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Mild hamstring strain

    Polanco has been diagnosed with a mild left hamstring strain, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Polanco suffered the injury during Wednesday's game against the Dodgers. That the injury is being termed mild would seem to give him a shot to avoid the injured list, although hamstrings are notoriously tricky. Polanco went 1-for-3 with a single before exiting Wednesday.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Homers, steals first bag

    Polanco went 3-for-5 with a double, a homer, an RBI, three runs scored and a steal in Monday's 9-8 loss against the Dodgers.

    Polanco singled, stole second and came around to score in the second inning. Polanco has not taken advantage of the new rules, as he had not even attempted to steal a base prior to Monday. The second baseman homered in the fourth off Noah Syndergaard, as a part of his three-hit night. Polanco is having a good season at the plate with an .816 OPS.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Pops third homer

    Polanco went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 11-1 rout of the Cubs.

    He took Hayden Wesneski deep in the fifth inning, one of five Minnesota homers on the day. Polanco snapped a 12-game homer drought with the performance, and he's still struggling to find his timing after his delayed start to the season. Through 20 games, he's slashing .259/.276/.424 with three home runs, 12 RBI and a 2:22 BB:K.
