    • Blanco went 1-for-3 with a pair of walks and a run in Thursday's 7-0 win over the Rockies. With David Peralta resting for the day game after a night game, Gregor Blanco took Peralta's normal spot atop the lineup and spurred the Diamondbacks' five-run first inning with a leadoff walk. Blanco went on to reach base twice more in the blowout win, but his solid showing isn't expected to earn him more at-bats, at least until the Diamondbacks' playoff position has been solidified.

    • Blanco went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, two runs, a stolen base and an RBI in Thursday's 8-1 triumph over the Dodgers. Blanco closed out August with by far his best game of the month, as he had gone 5-for-38 with 17 strikeouts over his previous 18 appearances. The solid showing Thursday won't be enough for Blanco to overcome his tepid production over the last several weeks, so look for him to continue to serve in a bench role more often than not throughout September.

    • Blanco went 1-for-5 with an RBI and four strikeouts in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Mets. Making contact has never been a major issue for Blanco during his career, but he's whiffing at an uncommonly high rate in August, striking out in 16 of his 40 plate appearances. A.J. Pollock has endured similar woes at the plate in August, so manager Torey Lovullo may continue to look to Blanco or fellow reserve outfielder Rey Fuentes a couple times per week to see if either can spark the offense on days where Pollock is resting.

    • Blanco went 1-for-5 with three strikeouts in Wednesday's 9-5 loss to the Astros. With David Peralta (personal) on paternity leave, Blanco entered the starting lineup for the third time in four games, manning the leadoff spot for the latter two contests. He wasn't able to take advantage of the increased at-bats, however, going 1-for-12 with seven strikeouts over those contests. Peralta has since rejoined the Diamondbacks and will reenter the lineup in Thursday's series finale, according to Christian Boutwell of MLB.com, forcing Blanco back into a bench role.

    • Diamondbacks' Gregor Blanco: Goes hitless in start
      By RotoWire Staff

      Blanco went 0-for-2 with a walk and two strikeouts in Sunday's 7-2 loss to the Cubs. Blanco was making only his seventh start since the All-Star break with manager Torey Lovullo opting to give everyday center fielder A.J. Pollock a day off in the series finale. The irregular playing time has just about erased any fantasy value that Blanco held earlier in the season, but thanks to his on-base skills and defensive acumen, he still looks like the top reserve option in the Arizona outfield.
