    Player Outlook

    Andres Blanco has been a valuable reserve for the Phillies the past three seasons. He hit .253/.316/.405 with four homers in 190 at-bats and played all four infield positions plus left field last season. He has been exposed when given regular playing time, but has been solid coming off the bench along with the occasional start. Another season of around 200 at-bats is likely. That should result in a handful of homers, a steal or two and a decent batting average. That is a useful player in extremely deep leagues, but waiver wire fodder for most.

    • Phillies' Andres Blanco: Homers Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Blanco went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in a 17-3 win over the Nationals on Saturday. Blanco entered Saturday's game as a pinch hitter and stayed in to play shortstop with the Phillies up big. The utility infielder has yet to make a start this season, but that is likely coming soon.

    • Blanco is a lock for a bench spot with the Phillies, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports. Blanco saw playing time at all four infield spots with the Phillies last season and even made on start in left. He will again be the team's primary utility infielder, but he has virtually no chance of stepping into a starting role for an extended stretch should any of the guys in front of him get hurt. The Phillies have younger players awaiting opportunities in the majors should something open up.

    • Blanco signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Phillies on Wednesday, CSN Philly's Jim Salisbury reports. He was a replacement level player with the Phillies last season (0.1 fWAR), but he can play all four infield positions, and figures to serve in a utility role once again in 2017. They will hope he can bounce back to something near his 2015 production levels (.292/.360/.502), but that seems highly unlikely.

    • Phillies' Andres Blanco: Not in lineup Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Blanco is out of the lineup for Monday's series opener against the Pirate Blanco had taken place of Maikel Franco (thumb) at third base over the last five games, but Franco's return to the fold will likely push Blanco back to a bench role. He should once again take on a position as a utility infielder.
