Placido Polanco went 2-for-4 and plated the Marlins' lone run in Friday night's loss to the Phillies.

While it's nearly indefensible that Polanco is serving as the cleanup hitter on a Major League team, he's actually been one of the Marlins' best hitters to this point, hitting .351/.351/.406. He won't contribute much in terms of power or speed, but as long as he's hitting in the middle of the lineup, he certainly has use in NL-only and deeper mixed leagues.
