Summing up the Dutchies per MLB organization: San Francisco Giants

Today another MLB organization that has only one Dutchie in it’s ranks:

      Number of Dutchies: 1

John Polonius:
The 24-year old John Polonius broke into the pro leagues in 2012 when he played 32 games for the AZL GIants. In that short number of games he collected 36 hits in 120 at bats (.300). In 31 games as a shortstop, John committed 10 errors, leading to a fielding percentage of .928.
The hitting of the Curacaoan apparently left such an impression that the Giants sent him to their namesake in San Jose at the start of the 2013 season. But due to disappointing results (a batting average of .221 in 26 games) he was sent down to the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes of the Pioneer League (A Short Season). That appeared to be a good move as his hitting improved a lot. In 39 games, his batting jumped to .270. He played the majority of the games at shortstop; in 24 games he committed 3 errors.
In 2014 John played all in field positions but first base for the Augusta GreenJackets of the South Atlantic League (A Full Season). He played most games at second base (22) in which he posted a fielding percentage of .983. At the plate he posted a batting average of .257.
In 2015 he started the season on the DL but was activated on April 16 and sent to A Advanced San Jose again. But somehow he has trouble to see the ball this season. So far he is hitting a sub par .198. Perhaps it is because of his injury riddled season. So far John has been on the DL four times.

It is hard to predict where John’s development will head to. If he can stay off the DL for the rest of the season he may start to hit. I hope that the Giants have some patience and give him a shot in 2016. A good rest in the off season may do him good, so he can have a fresh start in 2016.
