RotoWire News: Polanco received PRP injections during the second half of 2016 to help with his injured shoulder and knee. "It's a little tough to deal with it," Polanco told DK Pittsburgh Sports. "I just kept fighting and kept playing, because I don't like to be sitting down. Focus next year to keep healthy, because if I stay healthy and I keep fighting, I can go through the whole season."
