Just to 2nd Mr. Nelson's words, Polanco and Goodrum didn't split reps at SS. Polanco got almost all his playing time at SS when Goodrum got hurt during the second half of the season. The number of games Polanco started at SS and Goodrum at 2B were in the single digits.

Yeah, when Polanco and Goodrum were both healthy, I don't think Polanco played SS more than a handful of times. I don't think Polanco will be able to play SS. I think he'll stay at 2B. I think he can play SS, but the arm is the thing that makes me question it.
Love his bat. And, he's not just a skinny kid any more. He's got a great eye at the plate, a great approach. And, he's got some real pop in his bat. I think he's an impressive player.
