Polanco returned from an offseason shoulder injury to tally six homers and three steals with an 89 wRC+ in 42 games. His strikeouts and pop-ups both increased before he went back on the IL with shoulder inflammation. A 27-year-old who recorded 23 homers and 12 steals with a career-high .353 wOBA last season still has plenty of long-term value. This year, however, he may never work off the rust well enough to derive his usual worth in standard mixed leagues. Polanco likely won't return in July after suffering a setback in his rehab assignment.

Polanco still hasn't quite amounted to what everyone hoped and thought he would be. That is still possible in the long run, of course, but for now, he isn't helping fantasy teams in any category and can remain on waivers.
