Angels dump Joe Blanton
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Veteran right-hander Joe Blanton has turned a terrible spring into unemployment. He was released Wednesday by the Angels after compiling a 7.08 ERA in exhibition play and losing his battle for the final spot in the rotation.

His career took a significant downturn in 2013, when he managed a 2-14 record and 6.04 with the Angels. He has recorded an ERA of under 4.00 just once in his major league career, going 14-10 with a 3.95 ERA with Oakland in 2007. His career ERA is 4.51.

Blanton gave up 180 hits in just 132 2/3 innings a year ago.

Joe Blanton surrenders three runs vs. Cubs
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Angels pitcher Joe Blanton allowed three earned runs on four hits and two walks in 5 1/3 innings, adding one strikeout in his team's 4-2 loss to the Cubs Monday.

Blanton bounced back from giving up four home runs with five scoreless innings in his previous outing but couldn't maintain that level of excellence Monday. He owns a 6.75 ERA and 9:4 K:BB ratio in 16 innings.

Movement on mound turns Joe Blanton around
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

One foot has meant a lot to Angels right-hander Joe Blanton. His move from the first-base side to the third-base side of the rubber did him wonders on Wednesday.

Blanton pitched five one-hit shutout innings while walking none against Texas. The outing could go a long way in him securing a bullpen spot with the rotation seemingly secure from top to bottom.

"Joe looked great," Mike Scioscia told the Orange County Register. "I think a lot of the things were tangible, as far as some of the angles he could create. Going to the other side of the mound gave him a slightly different perspective. He pitched well against some good hitters."

The only chance for Blanton to work his way into the rotation would be through injury or a collapse of current fifth starter Tyler Skaggs.
