Latest Update Clay Harbor (calf) out a month Wed Jul, 30, 11:41 AM
A consistent contact hitter who has excellent base-stealing speed and the ability to draw walks, he's also an athletic outfielder with a strong arm. Also displays the ability to hit for home-run power.
Flaws: : So far, he has yet to show enough power to be categorized as a legitimate five-tool talent. Also, he will have to prove capable of hitting quality left-handed pitching at the big-league level: the jury is still out.
Harbor was hoping to see an increase in time this year but still expecting to play behind Marcedes Lewis. Now, his absence opens the door for the likes of Brandon Barden, Marcel Jensen, Reggie Jordan and D.J. Tialavea to step in and possibly carve out a bigger role of themselves. Analyst: Howard Bender
He was carted off the field, so the injury is not a simple day off for Harbor. He has some value as a reserve tight end for the Jags, but his days of being semi-valuable as a pass catcher for fantasy purposes are numbered, with the depth the team is accumulating at wide receiver in this year's draft.Analyst: Ivar G.

Polonco logged his second multi-hit game of the second half on Tuesday night, but is hitting only .211 with one extra-base hit since returning from the All-Star break (five games). Although the sample size is small, it would have been nice to see the Pirates top prospect heat up to start the second half, considering his production up to this point has been rather underwhelming. He is now slashing .253/.339/.349 with four home runs, 17 RBI and six stolen bases through 146 at-bats. Analyst: Matthew Beck
He's just 3-for-31 (.097) over his last seven games and he's hitting just .246 on the season now. The cool-off has been dramatic, and while he's losing value rapidly in re-draft leagues, he's still going to be the man come next season. Michael Martinez will handle the work in right field Monday.Analyst: Howard Bender
