Blanco is batting fifth and playing third base Thursday, Todd Zolecki of reports.

He fills in at the hot corner for Maikel Franco, who's the designated hitter. Blanco squares off with hittable Texas southpaw Martin Perez, giving him a deep sleeper boost in DFS when combined with his advantageous lineup spot. Of course, Blanco is batting just .222/.300/.370 in 30 plate appearances on the year, so temper expectations.
