Jorge Polanco had a solid performance in Sunday's game against the White Sox, contributing to the Twins' 4-0 victory.
Polanco went 1-for-3 at the plate, driving in one run with a home run and scoring another run. While his overall season stats have been decent, with a .264 batting average and 43 RBI in 72 games played, Polanco's performance in this game showcased his power potential and could increase his fantasy value going forward. However, his high strikeout rate of 0.285 and relatively low walk rate of 0.110 are areas for improvement. Nonetheless, Polanco's ability to contribute offensively makes him a valuable asset in fantasy leagues.
Jorge Polanco got in on the action Monday with a homer as part of a three-hit effort in a 20-6 victory over the Guardians.

The 30-year-old second baseman continues to provide some pop in the Twins' lineup, as he now has 11 home runs and 38 RBI on the season. While his batting average sits at a modest .259, Polanco's ability to drive in runs and contribute in the power categories makes him a valuable fantasy asset. With 26 walks and a .346 wOBA, Polanco has shown good plate discipline and should continue to be a reliable contributor down the stretch.
