Dodgers' Joe Blanton: 1.17 ERA in 23 innings since the end of July
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Blanton has posted a 1.17 ERA in 23 innings since the end of July and continues to function as the team's top setup man.

Blanton has been good all year, but great lately. With a 2.34 ERA and 27 holds in 77 innings, his one-year, $4 million deal has been a bargain for the Dodgers.

Dodgers' Joe Blanton: Reinstated from bereavement list
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Blanton (personal) was reinstated from the bereavement list Friday, David Vassegh of 570 AM Los Angeles reports.

Luis Avilan was optioned to make room on the roster. The 35-year-old Blanton has been a valuable source of holds over the past two and a half months as he's racked up 17 holds since the calendar turned to June, and he's even had value in deep standard-scoring formats as a ratios play.

Dodgers' Joe Blanton: Placed on bereavement list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blanton has been placed on the bereavement list, Jack Baer of MLB.com reports.

Blanton will be replaced on the roster by Josh Ravin. Players on the bereavement list must miss at least three games and no more than seven games, so Blanton will return to the Dodgers sometime between August 12 against Pittsburgh and August 17 against Philadelphia.

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.
