Polanco made his debut, albeit brief, with the Twins last season. Having to be called upon to provide depth due to injuries, the young prospect jumped from Sinle-A Fort Myers all the way to the big leagues. While it wasn’t the Twins saying he was ready, their was plenty of buzz around the call up.

Finishing the year with Double-A New Britain, Polanco slashed .288/.353/.395 in 2014. While hitting seven home runs and driving in over 60 runners, Polanco also swiped 17 bases. However, he was caught stealing 11 times and once he gets a better grasp on reading pitchers, he could become a bigger base stealing threat as well.
