Dodgers' Joe Blanton: 2.22 ERA in 44.2 innings as setup man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blanton tossed a scoreless inning with two strikeouts in Wednesday's loss to the Orioles.

Blanton now appears to be Kenley Jansen's top setup man. He's carrying a 2.22 ERA and 0.78 WHIP with a 46:13 K:BB in 44.2 innings.

Dodgers' Joe Blanton: Puts up career best numbers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Blanton has a 2.81 ERA and 0.78 WHIP after pitching 25.2 innings in 2016.

The 35-year-old righty has become the most-used pitcher in the Dodgers' bullpen, and rightfully so, as he's posting some of the best numbers of his career. His K/9 rate is currently 9.12, blowing his career average of 6.42 out of the water, and at 91.1 miles per hour, his fastball is the fastest it's ever been. While his 4.11 ERA for the month of May makes it look like his performance is trending downward, this is almost entirely coming from two rough outings where he gave up six runs in two innings. Apart from those two games, Blanton has given up only two runs across 23.2 innings in 2016.

Dodgers' Joe Blanton: Earns first win of season against Atlanta on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Blanton earned his first win of the year against Atlanta on Wednesday, allowing a walk and no runs in one inning of work.

Wednesday's win brings Blanton's record to a deceptive 1-1. He has had a solid year so far, with his only loss and only earned run coming on a solo home run on Apr. 6. His 1.50 ERA, 0.67 WHIP and 5:1 K:BB are great, but his lack of holds and saves limit his fantasy value in many leagues.

Dodgers' Joe Blanton: Staying in the bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joe Blanton is not being considered as an option to stretch out for the back of the Los Angeles Dodgers ' rotation, the Los Angeles Times reports.

With a slew of injuries this spring, including an oblique strain for Michael Bolsinger most recently, the Dodgers are looking at Carlos Frias, Zach Lee, and Brandon Beachy as potential replacements if Bolsinger is unable to avoid the disabled list when the regular season begins.

Joe Blanton: Reaches agreement with Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joe Blanton and the Dodgers agreed to a one-year, $4 million contract, Yahoo's Jeff Passan reports.

Following a string of disappointing seasons as a starter, the 35-year-old Blanton reinvented himself as an effective reliever last season, posting a 2.84 ERA, 9.4 K/9 and 1.9 BB/9 over 76 innings and 36 appearances (four starts). He'll likely serve as a middle/long reliever, with the potential to provide rotation depth if the Dodgers are hit hard by injuries.
