Sun, 01 May 2016 12:47:47 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan (undisclosed) was replaced by OF Gregor Blanco in the bottom of the seventh inning on Sunday, May 1, against the New York Mets after suffering an apparent injury while attempting to stretch a single into a double in the top of the inning.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants should release some more information about this injury shortly. Pagan entered Sunday batting .315 and tied for the team lead with 17 runs.

Phillies | Gregor Blanco has three-hit game

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 22:47:47 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Gregor Blanco went 3-for-4 with a double, two-run home run and two runs scored with a walk Tuesday, April 26, against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco is hitting .346 this season, but it's mostly station-to-station work and the power is an anomaly. He is still a solid fantasy option in NL-only formats and he is a salary saver in DFS play.

Giants | Denard Span, Brandon Belt sitting

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 12:23:18 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Denard Span and 1B Brandon Belt are not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Sunday, April 24. C Buster Posey will start at first base, while C Trevor Brown will start at catcher and is batting sixth. OF Gregor Blanco will start in center field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Brown has posted solid numbers in his limited playing time and could be used in daily fantasy leagues. Blanco has gone 4-for-9 with three triples in the last seven days and could be a decent option in daily leagues.

Giants | Angel Pagan out of lineup

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 14:58:20 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan is out of the lineup Saturday, April 23, with OF Gregor Blanco hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco is 2-for-3 with a homer off Jose Fernandez. It's an extremely small sample size, but if you're looking for a basement outfielder to load up elsewhere in DFS, he's worth a shot.

Giants | Hunter Pence being rested

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 15:31:40 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence, who is 4-for-24 in his career against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke, is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 20. OF Gregor Blanco is starting in right field and hitting seventh against Greinke.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco has three hits in 15 career at-bats against Greinke with four strikeouts, so it doesn't get much better for him. Greinke hasn't quite been his 2015 version with his new team in 2016, but the matchup nevertheless shouldn't inspire confidence for Blanco in daily affairs.

Giants | Denard Span, Brandon Crawford not playing

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 15:15:47 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Denard Span and SS Brandon Crawford (hip) are both out of the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed SP Clayton Kershaw Friday, April 15. OF Angel Pagan moves up to the leadoff spot. OF Gregor Blanco draws the start in center field and is hitting ninth, while 2B Kelby Tomlinson is starting at shortstop and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford's injury isn't believed to be serious, and he might've been out tonight anyway while going against Kershaw. Put him back in your starting lineups when he returns. Blanco and Tomlinson should be avoided in daily games. Pagan is hitting .267 (16-for-60) with five doubles in his career against Kershaw and is a contrarian daily pick tonight.

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 08:20:07 -0700

Giants | Gregor Blanco still not ready to return

Thu, 17 Mar 2016 15:00:51 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco (back) was scratched from the lineup Thursday, March 17.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco is expected to be the fourth outfielder, which limits his fantasy value to cavernous mixed and NL-only formats. The 32-year-old veteran is a low-end option in those deep formats, too.

Giants | Gregor Blanco battling the flu

Sat, 27 Feb 2016 21:17:06 -0800

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco (illness) was sent home from camp Saturday, Feb. 27, due to flu-like symptoms.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco is likely to be on the mend for a couple of days. He is expected to come off the bench, but could see a decent amount of at-bats and is worth adding for depth in NL-only fantasy leagues.

Giants | Gregor Blanco to come off the bench

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 17:26:26 -0800

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is expected to serve as the club's fourth outfielder in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: OFs Angel Pagan, Denard Span and Hunter Pence will comprise San Francisco's starting outfield, meaning Blanco will begin the year in a reserve role. However, all three players missed considerable playing time in 2015, so he could receive enough at-bats to be worthy of selecting as a bench player for NL-only fantasy leagues.
