Gregory Polanco - Future Pittsburgh Pirates star

Yahoo SportsMay 7, 2014

According to the Pittsburgh Pirates, star outfield prospect Gregory Polanco isn't ready for the major leagues yet. Apparently, however, he's more than ready for a contract that could span a decade.

The Pirates recently offered the 22-year-old Polanco a seven-year deal with three club options that would guarantee him a little bit less than $25 million, a source with knowledge of the team's plans told Yahoo Sports. Polanco rejected the deal and remains at Triple-A Indianapolis, a casualty of Major League Baseball's service-time rules that continue to give teams an incentive to bury some of the best prospects in the minor leagues until June.
