      Giants' Kyle Blanks: Minor league deal with Giants

      Blanks (Achilles) has agreed to a minor league contract with the Giants, pending a physical, Andrew Baggarly of the Bay Area News Group reports. The "pending a physical" part is no formality with Blanks, who was limited to 18 games last season due to Achilles tendinitis, and had to have both Achilles' tendons operated on in the offseason. Blanks brings some pop and can draw a walk, but he's limited defensively. A short-end platoon role with Brandon Belt at first base would likely be a best-case scenario for Blanks in 2016.

      Kyle Blanks: Elects free agency

      Blanks has elected free agency, SB Nation's Chris Cotillo reports. While Blanks fared well when on the field for a second consecutive season, his issues with Achilles tendinitis persisted, limiting him to a mere 18 games for Texas. He was outrighted off the Rangers' 40-man roster last week. The 29-year-old will look to latch on with another club, but his availability for the start of spring training is uncertain after he had surgery on both of his Achillies' tendons in September.
