Polanco's (shoulder) has been shut down after suffering a setback during his rehab assignment, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.
Polanco will head back to Pittsburgh for further evaluation after suffering a setback during his rehab outing with Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday. Team trainer Todd Tomczyk relayed that the outfielder's shoulder is "strong and stable," however the team is still working to "figure out the details of what's causing the soreness and the discomfort in the back of the shoulder," according to Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Polanco (shoulder) left his rehab outing Sunday with Triple-A Indianapolis due to shoulder tightness, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.
Polanco has been out since late June with inflammation in the same shoulder in which he had surgery back in September. He seemed to be closing in on a return to action before Sunday's setback. He'll rest Monday and be examined by doctors, at which point a new timeline could emerge.
Polanco (shoulder) went 0-for-1 with a walk before he was removed from Sunday's Triple-A game against Columbus.
There's been some speculation that the outfielder could join the Pirates on Monday, though there hasn't been any official word regarding his Sunday removal. The team hasn't announced any sort of injury, either. Polanco is 6-for-25 with a home run during his rehab stint. Pittsburgh's outfield remains crowded with four capable players, not including Polanco.
Polanco (shoulder) went 2-for-4 with a run in his first rehab game for Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday.
His rehab stint is expected to carry through the All-Star break. An injury to a current starter could change the timeline, but Polanco might not resume regular playing time until after the trade deadline. The outfielder hasn't played for Pittsburgh since June 16.
Polanco (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
Polanco hasn't been out particularly long, landing on the injured list on June 22. Under normal circumstances, he could be just a few days from getting back into big-league action, but with the All-Star break beginning Monday, the Pirates can afford to be cautious and bring Polanco along slowly rather than rush him back for just a game or two.
