      Andres Blanco was reassigned to minor-league camp Sunday, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.Blanco's strong spring -- during which he went 6-for-14 (.429) with a homer and six RBI -- wasn't enough to earn him a spot on the Atlanta Braves' Opening Day roster.

      Andres Blanco: Signs minor-league deal with Braves

      Andres Blanco signed a minor-league contract which includes an invitation to spring training with the Braves on Friday, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.Blanco can fill in all around the infield, but there's not much left in the 34-year-old's bat, which was rarely an asset even when he was younger. He owns a career .256/.310/.378 slash line in parts of 10 big-league seasons and was last seen at the major-league level hitting .192/.257/.292 in 144 plate appearances for the Phillies back in 2017. It would be a surprise to see the veteran win an Opening Day roster spot and an even bigger surprise to see him make a significant impact.

      Phillies' Andres Blanco: Playing time remains limited

      Andres Blanco hit a double in his only at-bat in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Rockies.Blanco has just 14 at-bats since the All-Star break and is unlikely to see an uptick in playing time unless injuries strike the Philadelphia Phillies in the infield. The veteran has hit just .168 with a .480 OPS in just 107 at-bats this season, so he's not making much of a case for himself.
