RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Blanco broke camp in 2012 as the Giants' fourth outfielder, but eventually earned a starting spot in the lineup. An above average outfielder, Blanco had a fWAR of 2.4 because of defense (especially in the corner spots) while also stealing 26 bases. He has little power (.099 ISO in 2012) and strikes out too often (23.2 percent), but he has an above average walk rate (11.3 percent). Blanco's 91 wRC+ indicates he is best served as a fourth outfielder, but he is most likely to be the Opening Day starter in left field despite the return of Andres Torres.

2011

Blanco's 2010 campaign was boosted by two months of strong production. In 24 May games, Blanco hit .333/.436/.333, and in 25 August contests he swiped nine bases. Outside of August, Blanco nabbed just one base, and he didn't hit .300 in any month besides May. He doesn't provide much in the way of counting stats, though he could be in line for a career high in at-bats should he win a starting job in the Royals' outfield out of spring training. He started 43 games in the outfield in the season's final two months.

2010

Blanco was in the mix last season to win playing time, but didn't hit in a bench role and then struggled at Triple-A Gwinnett, hitting just .229. Blanco has a strong eye at the plate and draws walks, but lacks the needed power to stay in the majors. He has some speed for fantasy purposes if he gets another shot at the majors, but his chance to win a regular role may have passed.

2009

Blanco is in the mix to at least platoon in left field and could win an everyday role after showing he can get on base at a good rate during his rookie season. Blanco draws walks at a strong rate, but doesn't have much power. He does steal the occasional base, which boosts his value for fantasy purposes. Since he can also play center field, he may stick as a reserve outfielder if he loses out on a bigger role.

2008

Blanco has shown he can get on base enough to get a chance at the majors, but he's fallen behind Brandon Jones and Jordan Schafer in the pecking order to win a job in the Atlanta outfield and likely doesn't have enough power to win an everyday role. Still, his strong eye at the plate and speed on the basepaths could make him a nice sleeper in deeper leagues if he gets called up or wins a reserve role next spring.

2007

Blanco lacks the power to win an everyday job in the majors, but his strong eye at the plate and speed on the basepaths could make him a nice sleeper in deeper leagues as he's just 23. He'll try to win a backup role with the Braves in spring training, but likely needs a full season at Triple-A.

2004

Blanco has exceptional speed and solid plate discipline, along with some extra base power. A strong year at Double-A could leapfrog him into Atlanta's plans for 2005.

2003

Blanco has speed and patience to burn, and could evolve into a special top-of-the-order candidate for the Braves if he learns to make more consistent contact at the plate.
