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. Most teams are happy to come across the occasional Joaquin Arias, a useful yet seriously flawed player that is capable of serving a functional purpose at the major-league level. In...

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.
