Top Jorge Polanco News

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: May not return this year

    Polanco is still feeling issues with his left knee and may not return this season, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Polanco hasn't played in nearly a month due to left knee inflammation. Given that the Twins have endured a late-season collapse and are out of the playoff picture, there's now little reason to rush Polanco back if he's anything short of 100 percent.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Starting rehab Friday

    Polanco (knee) will begin a rehab stint with Triple-A St. Paul on Friday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.

    It originally didn't seem like Polanco would need to play any games in the minors before returning, but that is exactly what he will be doing for the next couple days. The infielder's knee has kept him out of action since late August.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Pulled from rehab game

    Polanco was removed from Friday's rehab start at Triple-A St. Paul due to knee discomfort, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Polanco began his rehab assignment Friday, but it's discouraging that he was unable to make it through the game at St. Paul. He's slated to have an active recovery day and receive treatment Saturday, and a better idea of his status should come into focus based on how he feels afterward.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Could return this week

    Polanco (knee) could be activated from the injured list at some point this week, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Polanco's return date continues to be a moving target, as he's been said to be close to returning at several points in the past week. It doesn't sound like he'll need a rehab stint, so he could be activated as early as this weekend.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Won't return this weekend

    Manager Rocco Baldelli said Saturday that he hopes Polanco (knee) will be able to return early-to-mid next week, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    Although Polanco is eligible to be reinstated from the injured list during the Twins' weekend series against Cleveland, he'll be held out for at least a few more days. However, he played catch Thursday and seems to be trending in the right direction.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Plays catch Thursday

    Polanco (knee) played catch Thursday, the most baseball activity he's done since landing on the injured list last week, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Polanco missed a week with patellar tendinitis before he landed on the injured list Sept. 3. He's eligible to return during this weekend's series against the Guardians, but it's more likely his absence extends into next week.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Bound for injured list

    Polanco was placed on the 10-day injured list with left knee inflammation Saturday.

    Polanco hasn't played in a week while dealing with what had been referred to as patellar tendinitis. The move was backdated the maximum of three days, so he'll be eligible to return next Saturday, though it's not yet clear if that's in play. Jermaine Palacios' contract was selected in a corresponding move.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Sits fifth straight game

    Polanco (kneecap) is not in the lineup Friday against the White Sox.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Remains sidelined Wednesday

    Polanco (kneecap) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox.

    Polanco will sit out a fourth consecutive game while he continues to contend with left patellar tendinitis, affording Nick Gordon another start in the middle infield. The Twins are off Thursday, so the team will presumably wait and see how Polanco is feeling physically in advance of Friday's series opener with the White Sox before having a better sense of whether he'll require a stint on the injured list.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Sitting again Tuesday

    Polanco (kneecap) isn't starting Monday against the Red Sox.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Not starting Sunday

    Polanco (kneecap) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants.

    The 29-year-old exited Saturday's contest with left patellar tendinitis, and he'll be held out of the starting nine for at least one game. The severity of the injury remains unclear, and Polanco should be considered day-to-day. Nick Gordon will move to the keystone while Jake Cave starts in left field.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Exits Saturday's contest early

    Polanco left Saturday's game versus the Giants early with an undisclosed injury, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Polanco was replaced at second base by Nick Gordon in the top of the seventh inning, leaving for an unspecified reason. The 29-year-old Polanco has been dealing with knee soreness over the last week or so, which could be the reason for his removal. More information on his status will likely be provided after the contest.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Gets rest Monday

    Polanco is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Rangers.

    After missing two games with a knee injury early last week, Polanco checked back into the lineup Friday and played each of the first three contests of the series with the Rangers, going 3-for-10 with a double and a walk. The Twins haven't provided any indication that Polanco is dealing with a setback with the knee, so he's presumably sitting out Monday in a pre-planned maintenance day. Luis Arraez will spell Polanco at the keystone.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Back in action Friday

    Polanco (knee) is starting at second base and batting sixth Friday against the Rangers.

    The 29-year-old sat out the last two games after suffering the knee injury Monday in Kansas City, but he's apparently good to go after Minnesota's scheduled day off Thursday. Polanco has struggled in 20 games since the All-Star break with a .200/.307/.293 slash line.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Polanco (knee) isn't starting Wednesday against the Royals.

    Polanco sustained a knee injury on a slide Monday and will be out of the lineup for a second consecutive game. It's not yet clear whether he's available off the bench Wednesday, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him sit out since the Twins have a scheduled day off Thursday. Luis Arraez is shifting to the keystone while Jose Miranda starts at first base.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: MRI returns clean

    Manager Rocco Baldelli said after Tuesday's win over the Royals that Polanco (knee) underwent an MRI that "came back with good signals," and the second baseman is still considered day-to-day, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    The 29-year-old was held out of the lineup Tuesday after suffering a knee injury during Monday's contest, but it appears he's avoided a serious injury. Polanco seems unlikely to rejoin the lineup Wednesday, especially since the Twins have a scheduled day off Thursday, but a return for Friday's series opener versus the Rangers is more realistic.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Not starting Tuesday

    Polanco (knee) is not in the lineup Tuesday against Kansas City.

    The infielder should be considered day-to-day after he hurt his knee on a slide Monday. Luis Arraez figures to be the everyday second baseman for however long Polanco is sidelined.
