RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Blandino was taken in the first round of the 2014 draft with the 29th overall pick by the Reds, the pick gained when the Rangers signed away Shin-Soo Choo. Though he was selected as a third baseman from Stanford, Blandino has been used as a shortstop as a professional so far, and if he can stick there he'll have a lot more value, especially for the Reds given their lack of organizational depth at the position. He doesn't project to hit for a lot of power, but should be a good line drive hitter that could benefit quite a bit from playing in Cincinnati's home ballpark. There are some analysts that believe that he might even have more power than originally projected, as Stanford hitters typically have their swings adjusted to hit for less loft.
