Long time statistician Scott Russell makes a convincing case for Polanco being overlooked. He has a career .304 average and won a Silver Slugger award in 2007. He also has three Gold Glove awards and is the only MLB player to own a Gold Glove at two different positions. Polanco also won the 2006 ALCS MVP while he was with the Tigers.
The Dominican Baseball Guy agrees, he is certainly a great addition for any team, and the Dominican Baseball Guy will no longer overlook him. Polanco is in his second stint with the Phillies, and is overlooked on a team full of superstars. He is from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
