Blanco is out of the lineup Sunday against the Yankees, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports. Blanco will now be on the bench for the third time in four games, and with two of his absences coming against right-handed pitchers, it appears that Mac Williamson has now passed Blanco up on the depth chart. The Giants are also expected to get Hunter Pence (hamstring) back from the DL perhaps as soon as this week, which will make starting opportunities even harder to come by for Blanco.
Blanco is not in the lineup Saturday against the Yankees, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Blanco is getting his first break from game action since July 6 as Mac Williamson fills in for him in right, batting eighth. Blanco has been struggling since the end of June, collecting just six hits in his last 40 at-bats (.150)
Blanco is in the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks. Blanco has had a reduced role as of late, having just eight plate appearances over the last seven days, as he dealt with a knee injury. However, he'll start in place of Mac Williamson in right field for Sunday's game before the Giants head into the All-Star break.
Blanco (knee) is available to come into the game Wednesday against the Rockies, freelance writer Andrew Baggarly reports. Blanco has been out since July 3 with a sore knee, but could be back in action as a pinch-hitter Wednesday. He was scratched from Tuesday's lineup and was out of the lineup Wednesday with Mac Williamson (right), Angel Pagan (center) and Jarrett Parker (left) comprising the outfield spots for the finale of the series against Colorado.
Blanco (knee) was scratched from Tuesday's lineup, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports. Angel Pagan is now slated to lead off with Jarrett Parker in center field and the two-hole against right-hander Tyler Chatwood. Apparently, Blanco is still dealing with some soreness in his knee, an issue which kept him out Sunday and Monday. His status for Wednesday is up in the air.
