Pirates, Gregory Polanco agree to five-year extension
The Pirates and outfielder Gregory Polanco have agreed to a five-year contract extension with two opt-out clauses, the team announced Tuesday.
According to Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Passan, the deal will be worth more than $30 million.
Polanco hit .228 with nine home runs and 52 RBIs in 2015 and would have been arbitration-eligible in 2018. In 2014, Polanco reportedly rejected a seven-year extension that would have kept him in Pittsburgh through the 2024 season.
