Gregory Polanco - Future Pittsburgh Pirates star

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.
