A day after Gregory Polanco received most of a game off, his energy revved the engine for the Pittsburgh Pirates in a 5-1 victory against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Polanco led off the home first with a double and scored, then hit a two-run home run with two outs in the second.

The home run was particularly impressive with Polanco pulling a 77 mph curveball from Arizona starter Chase Anderson that broke below his knees over the Clemente Wall.

Former prospects Starling Marte, Gerrit Cole and Gregory Polanco each made their much anticipated Pirates debuts over the past three years, and the organization is hopeful pitcher Jameson Taillon recovers from Tommy John surgery in time to do the same next season.

Beyond Taillon, pitching prospects like Nick Kingham and Taylor Glasnow and position players like Alen Hanson, Josh Bell, Austin Meadows and Reese McGuire are all names fans have become familiar wi
