June 25-27, 2018 (NYS Games) 

60 Yard Dash: 
7.58
Exit Velocity:
90
Positional Arm: 
73
Pop-Time: 2.09-2.15
6-foot-0, 165-pounds with a projectable, lean body build. Active arm action, short action, quick clean release with 73 mph arm-strength 2.09 pop time in the workout with signs of lower times to come. In the box minimal hand movement, quiet stance and relaxed, mostly level swing path with high end bat speed (90), quality finish remaining balanced.
Last Chance Preview (November 17, 2017)

Polgano stands 5-foot-10, 155-pound frame. No stranger to PBR in his 4th event. Offensively- Continues to show an aggressive approach in the box with a fluid compact swing. Defensively- impresses at the corner with easy glove work and quick soft hands, above average arm-strength.
Big Apple Preview (October 9, 2017)

Polgano stands 5-foot-10, 155-pounds with a lean athletic build, signs of more height to come from his wiry frame. Improved his 60-time from a 7.91 to 7.24. In the box very relaxed approach, slightly open stance with hands relaxed by his shoulder. On the pitch he uses a small leg lift, back load for timing, hands power to the ball on a short direct path, barrel is level through contact with full extension. 92 mph exit velocity with power signs to his pull-side. Defensively worked out as a catcher/3B. Behind the plate he receives from a wide stance big open target, soft hands, active footwork. Kept his throws to the 1B side of 2B with carry at 73 mph arm strength, 2.05 best pop-time recorded and we expect that to lower with more reps. At 3B very relaxed to the ball, clean quick glove-to-hand transfer, throws from a high-3/4 slot with carry at 81 mph. Overall, Polgano shows all the tools of a next-level player. Added body strength and increased foot-speed will help him separate.
Team Citius Workout
Polgano checks in with a wiry/athletic 5-foot-10 150 pound frame. He ran a 7.91 60. Offensively- Sets up just outside his shoulder with feet even and an upright barrel just off back shoulder. Bottom hand load; tilts barrel back towards mound as he works in a slight leg kick and forward stride. Stays behind the ball and gets legs involved early; moderate swing length with balance at contact. Elevated two handed finish with gap-to-gap line drive/flyball results. Peak exit velocity was 83 MPH, a 2 MPH increase. Defensively- Behind the plate he uses a low to the ground, compact setup. Gains ground with pop step staying tight to the plate. Efficient with exchange and stays low coming out of the shoot; throws demonstrated carry at 69 MPH with a pop time range of 2.13-2.16. At 3B Polgano uses a tall setup pre-pitch; athletic actions staying on the balls of his feet. Bends at the waist with hands out in front; stays soft and is clean with his exchange. Uses a 3/4 arm slot; throws were a respectable 78 MPH across the diamond. Pitching- On the mound arm action is long and loose working through the same 3/4 slot. Worked primarily from the stretch; mid chest balance point with a stride that opens up a touch to the 1B side creating some peel-off in that direction. Showed FB command at 75-77 MPH and a feel for his CB with late 12-to-6 action at 64-65 MPH. Change up demonstrated arm side fade with a solid differential at 66-68 MPH. Three pitch mix with room for growth; projects well at several spots on the field.
Long Island Top Prospect (January 16, 2017)

Polgano, a 2019 right-handed hitting third baseman/RHP currently ranked 11th best prospect at third base for the class of 2019, stands at 5-foot-10 and weighs 145 pounds, ran a 4.64 from home to first. Offensively- Starts with a slightly open balanced lower half, both knees inside the feet, while the hands start in front of the back shoulder with the barrel of the bat almost perpendicular to the ground. Gets to the launch phase of the swing using a subtle shift of weight to the back side with the lead foot elevating, slight inward rotation of the lead knee as well, moderate stride landing on the entire foot while the hands are loaded straight back outside the shoulder with a slight drop and barrel of the bat getting to a 45 degree angle. Displayed quick hands and a compact bat path during batting practice, driving the ball on the inner third of the plate well from the pull side line to the center of the field. Recorded an exit velocity of 81 MPH. Impressive looking prospect with an aggressive approach at the plate.  Defensively-  Uses a pre-pitch hop technique keeping the hands even with the shoulders. Approached the ball with an aggressive, but under control, athletic and fluid body movement. Fielded the ball out in front of the body from the center to left of the body. Transferred the ball from the center of the body waist high. Keeps the transfer in sync with the lower half movements together helping create a good power position. Throws showed good carry and accuracy.
