by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Veteran right-hander Joe Blanton has been signed by the Royals off their Triple-A roster in Omaha. He will join the team in time for the Saturday night clash against the Yankees.

The 34-year-old Blanton has scuffled in his last three outings after a strong start in the minors. He has allowed 11 runs in his last 16 2/3 innings to raise his ERA to 3.89.
