Gregory Polanco - Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Gregory Polanco keeps annihilating AAA while Masahiro Tanaka continues to be allergic to walking people.

Hey folks, welcome back to the Gameday. I'm pressed for time today so no recaps, but all the juicy details I usually go over can be found below in the Top 100. We have a pair of Top 100 pitching match ups, leading to a tasty pair of Duels of the Day and we also have the rest of the probable starters for today. Enjoy!
