GREGOR BLANCO RUMORS

Giants' Gregor Blanco refreshed after rough 2013

Outfielder Gregor Blanco struggled to find the right word, in English or Spanish, to describe how he felt after his disappointing 2013 season. Finally, it came to him: "Exhausted."

The Importance of Gregor Blanco

Every spring, the Giants go out and sign a bunch of players to minor-league deals. It’s baseball’s bargain bin, and history would suggest the Giants are particularly adept at this dumpster diving.

SF Giants Rumors: Blanco Could Be A Lock, Roster Spots In Question

Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle says outfielder Gregor Blanco is as close to a stone-cold lock as any non-roster invitee could be.   “He’s done all he can do to make this club,” said manager Bruce Bochy. “He’s played great.

Could Gregor Blanco be the new Giants lead off hitter?

Center fielder Gregor Blanco signed with the San Francisco Giants last week (via CSNBayArea), and as a Venezuelan and a huge Blanco fan I couldn't help, but to think if he could be the lead off hitter the Giants are looking for.
