The franchise decided not to give details about the Dominican’s absence in the last two trainings.
Surprise in Pittsburgh Pirates. The Dominican Gregory Polanco did not participate in the summer training at PNC Park, between Wednesday and Thursday, with a view to returning from the busy season of the MLB.
“We have only kept him apart for the past few days. I will not talk much about it, “said the leader Derek Shelton about the absence of the Dominican.
Ke’Bryan Hayes and Keone Kela also were not part of training at the Pirates at any time and for no apparent reason, fueling speculation regarding care about the coronavirus pandemic.
Last season in the big leagues, Polanco only took 153 at-bats in 42 games, with six homers, 37 hits, drove in 17 runs and a .242 batting average.
