The Phillies signed veteran journeyman Ty Wigginton this off season who can play third as a security back up to Polanco, who has missed 70 games over the last two years. Another year in the league for Polanco, which means his body, is just getting older and more prone to injury. To prove it, he started off both years tremendously, only to fall off at the end of the year, which is also when he has missed the majority of his games. This year, look for Polanco to start off hot as he usually does, but team doctors will be keeping a much closer eye on him, making sure what happened last year doesn't repeat itself.
We certainly hope Polanco can stay healthy this year, which is why his playing time in games this spring training is going to be limited. With Ryan Howard making huge strides in his return, it is also a nice sight to see Polanco returning to form.
