The Pirates have placed 2B Neil Walker on the disabled list clearing up the roster spot for Polanco. He now joins George Springer, Oscar Taveras and Jon Singleton as top prospects to get the call to the Bigs this season. The Pirates rank 7th in OBP, but are below average in batting, slugging and runs scored.
