Padres newcomer Kyle Blanks slams four hits in victory
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Kyle Blanks has pretty much shot blanks when given the chance to play at the big-league level. But he has certainly taken advantage of his limited opportunity so far with the Rangers.

Blanks fell a triple short of the cycle as part of a wrecking crew Saturday night that buried Oakland. Batting fifth in the lineup, he doubled in a run in the first, singled in the third, led off the sixth with a home run and put the cherry on top with an RBI single in the seventh.

The former top prospect and disappointment in San Diego has blasted off in consecutive games and owns a 1.000 slugging percentage.

Kyle Blanks connects for first homer as a Ranger
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

First baseman Kyle Blanks connected for his first home run as a Ranger on Friday in the team's loss to the Athletics.

Blanks, who signed as a free agent with the Rangers in the offseason, was recently recalled from Triple-A Round Rock.

His homer was his first in the majors since May 31, 2014, when he was a member of the A's.

Blanks' homer was a second-inning solo shot off A's starter Scott Kazmir.

Rangers 1B Kyle Blanks looks to make impact after latest call-up
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

On Wednesday, the Rangers called up power-hitting first baseman Kyle Blanks to replace Mitch Moreland on the roster, as Moreland is recovering from left elbow surgery. Blanks signed a minor league contract with the Rangers in the offseason, but did not make the club out of Spring Training.

Blanks, who made his MLB debut in 2009, has had an injury-riddled career, as he has dealt with a number of foot and leg ailments. In 2010 he underwent Tommy John surgery. He started the 2015 season recovering from an Achilles injury. Now healthy, Blanks is ready to prove that he can contribute to the Rangers' offense, currently one of the worst in the American League.

"I know what I'm capable of doing on the field, it's a matter of staying there," Blanks said, per MLB.com. "I know I play hard, and if that's what has caused what's happened to me, so be it. I'm not going to stop trying to play the game the right way."

Blanks was hitting well in Triple-A this season, batting .327 with three home runs and 11 RBI in 52 at-bats prior to his call-up. He made his season debut with the Rangers on Wednesday, going 0 for 3 with two strikeouts while starting at first base.

Rangers' Moreland undergoes elbow surgery; Blanks promoted
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland underwent surgery to remove a loose body from his left elbow, per the team's official website.

Moreland was scratched from the Rangers' lineup on Tuesday after his elbow had locked up on him earlier in the day. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list. Texas purchased the contract of first baseman Kyle Blanks from Round Rock. Outfielder Alex Hassan has been designated for assignment to open space on the active roster.

Moreland started the year with a .304 batting average, a home run and nine RBI in 16 games.
