  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Club option exercised

    The Twins exercised Polanco's $10.5 million club option for 2024 on Thursday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Polanco again battled durability issues in 2023, missing significant time due to ankle, knee and hamstring injuries, but he registered a .789 OPS with 14 home runs across 80 games (343 plate appearances) when healthy. Minnesota could potentially look to trade the 30-year-old infielder this winter and install Edouard Julien at second base, but exercising the option was likely an easy early-offseason decision for the AL Central champs.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Back in action for Game 1

    Polanco (ankle) is starting at third base and batting second in Tuesday's Game 1 of their AL Wild Card Series versus the Blue Jays.

    Polanco missed the final two games of the regular season with a right ankle injury, but he's ready to go for the Twins' playoff opener. With Royce Lewis limited to designated hitter duties as he returns from a hamstring injury, Polanco is in line to serve as Minnesota's regular third baseman.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Out of lineup Saturday

    Polanco (ankle) wasn't in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against Colorado.

    Polanco was pulled from Friday's matchup due to a sore right ankle, and the Twins are likely acting out of an abundance of caution by holding him out of this one after already locking up the AL Central. He'll continue to be considered day-to-day moving forward.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Still out Sunday

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Removed with sore ankle

    Polanco is considered day-to-day after exiting Friday's game at Colorado due to right ankle soreness, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    Polanco tweaked his ankle on a fourth-inning strikeout, though he was able to gut it out until the bottom of the sixth. Donovan Solano slid over from first base to second base with Alex Kirilloff entering to play first. This is the same ankle Polanco has twice had surgically repaired, but it sounds like he could be available as early as Saturday for the AL Central-champion Twins.

Though the Twins should get some reinforcement to the lineup with Alex Kirilloff (shoulder) and Byron Buxton (knee) due back soon from the injured list, Polanco will continue to play on a near-everyday basis while moving between second base, third base and designated hitter.
