Last year, 34-year old righty swinging 3B Placido Polanco struggled through injuries. He played in 132 games for the Phillies last year and he was 165 of 554 (.298 avg, .726 OPS) with 76 runs scored, 6 homers, 52 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. But, so far this year, Polanco has been healthy and he’s making up for lost time. Polanco has played in 33 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 48 for 131 (.366 avg, .884 OPS) with 19 runs scored, 2 homers, 23 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. He has only whiffed 7 times this season while walking only 7 times. So not only is he hacking away but he’s hitting everything. The Phillies hope that Polanco can stay healthy as this was the version of him they thought they were getting when they signed him two winters ago.
