CHICAGO (AP) Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Gregory Polanco has been scratched from Saturday's lineup against the Chicago Cubs because of a groin injury.

Alen Hanson took Polanco's place in left field against the Cubs.

Polanco was 1 for 4 with a stolen base in Friday's 4-2 win over Chicago.


This story has been corrected to show that Alen Hanson, not Jordy Mercer, was starting in left field in Gregory Polanco's place.
