Polanco debuted for the Twins as a 20-year-old in 2014, but he's played just five games in four stints with the club since. He wouldn't seem to be a threat to make the team this year, either, but he's still a fine prospect with a lengthy career ahead of him as either a starting shortstop or a utilityman.

Darren Wolfson of 1500ESPN.com reports that the Twins will call up infield prospect Jorge Polanco from Double-A Chattanooga.

Polanco, who had a cup of coffee with the Twins last season, is batting .315/.346/.440 with four homers and 11 steals for Chattanooga this season. He's been playing shortstop there and could get a decent amount of time at the position with the Twins, although manager Paul Molitor seems infatuated with Eduardo Escobar.

Twins optioned INF Jorge Polanco to Double-A Chattanooga, optioned LHP Logan Darnell to Triple-A Rochester, reassigned INFs Argenis Diaz and Tyler Grimes, INF/OF Eric Farris, LHP Jason Wheeler, and RHPs Lester Oliveros and Adrian Salcedo to minor league camp.

Polanco had a breakout season in 2014, slashing .288/.353/.395 with seven homers, 61 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 131 games across two minor league levels. He also had a cup of coffee with the Twins in September and should get another opportunity with the big club in 2015. Oliveros is still working to regain his command after dealing with a shoulder issue, and should see time in the Twins bullpen during the season.
