PITTSBURGH, Pa. (WTAJ) – Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder, Gregory Polanco, has been placed on waiver by the Pirates.

The move effectively signals the end of his time with the team.

The Pirate’s longest-tenured and highest-paid player will be available to any team, but they will have to pay $2.72 million that he is still owed.

Polanco was the last player on the team from the 2013 to 2015 playoff era.
