  • Royals' Dairon Blanco: Adds steal Monday

    Blanco went 1-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Yankees. Blanco got the start in left field but moved over to right when Hunter Renfroe left the game with a broken toe. With Renfroe likely for the injured list, Blanco could get first dibs on a starting role moving forward, though it's also possible the Royals call up Drew Waters from Triple-A Omaha since there is a chance for steady playing time. Blanco has done well in limited action this season with a .259/.323/.362 slash line and 14 steals over 66 plate appearances as a fourth outfielder. However, he's gone just 3-for-17 over his last 11 contests and would likely struggle to hit consistently in an everyday role.

  • Royals' Dairon Blanco: Collects 13th steal

    Blanco stole a base and scored one run in Saturday's 8-4 win over the Mariners. Blanco got his first game action since June 2 and did what he does best: make an impact with speed. The steal was his second in his last three games, but he's not seeing much playing time even with the Royals getting anemic batting lines from their regular outfielders. For the season, Blanco has 13 thefts to go with one home run, four RBI, 17 runs scored and a .255/.323/.364 slash line over 63 plate appearances.

  • Royals' Dairon Blanco: Picks up steal in loss

    Blanco went 0-for-2 with a walk, a stolen base and one run scored in Saturday's 7-3 loss to the Padres. Blanco briefly looked to be claiming a larger role in mid-May, but he's since returned to his usual status as a fourth outfielder. His steal Saturday was his first since May 13, giving him 12 thefts on the year. He's added a decent .255/.323/.364 slash line with one home run, four RBI, 15 runs scored and three doubles over 63 plate appearances. Blanco's last two starts have come against right-handed pitchers, but it's seemed like more of a way to give Kyle Isbel regular rest than a sign of Blanco earning a larger role.

  • Royals' Dairon Blanco: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Blanco is absent from the lineup for Wednesday's game in Seattle. Blanco went through a stretch with four starts in five games, reaching base seven times while hitting one home run and stealing three bases. However, he's now been out of the lineup for two straight contests. The outfielder certainly has the ability to help fantasy managers with his speed if he gets regular reps, so his playing time is worth tracking.

  • Royals' Dairon Blanco: Records 11th steal

    Blanco went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in Monday's 6-2 loss to the Mariners. Blanco was 1-for-2 on stolen base attempts in the game. The outfielder began the year in a bench role, but he's hit his way into starting four of the last five games with time at all three outfield positions. He's gone 7-for-17 (.412) since May 6. Blanco doesn't have much of a track record in a starting role, but he's slashed .293/.356/.439 with a home run, two RBI, 14 runs scored and 11 steals through 45 plate appearances this season as a speed-and-defense option. Blanco's increased playing time has primarily come at the expense of MJ Melendez and Kyle Isbel.

  • Royals' Dairon Blanco: Swipes two bags in loss

    Blanco secured two stolen bases in Sunday's 3-2 extra-inning loss to the Rangers. Blanco entered the game in the bottom of the eighth inning as a pinch runner for Vinnie Pasquantino, stealing both second and third base. The outfielder is now up to eight stolen bases this season, and he's gotten three total swipes over the last three games. On the flip side, Blanco draws only an occasional spot in the starting lineup, limiting his upside as a stolen-base option for fantasy managers.

  • Royals' Dairon Blanco: Notches fifth steal

    Blanco stole a base as a pinch runner in Tuesday's 4-3 extra-inning win over the Astros. Blanco is tied for third in the American League with five steals despite logging just three plate appearances over eight games. He's also scored four runs. The 30-year-old is on the Royals' roster for speed and defense as a late-game replacement, but it's fair to assume he's not first in line to take a starting role if one of the team's other outfielders gets injured.

  • Royals' Dairon Blanco: Makes roster as extra outfielder

    Manager Matt Quatraro informed Blanco that he'll be on the Royals' Opening Day roster, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports Saturday. Blanco is likely to fill a bench role as a speed-and-defense option off the bench. The Royals are expected to begin the year with MJ Melendez, Kyle Isbel and Hunter Renfroe as the starting outfield from left to right. Blanco stole 24 bases in 2023 despite logging just 138 plate appearances, so he could have some appeal in AL-only fantasy formats.

  • Royals' Dairon Blanco: Back in action

    Blanco (calf) is starting in center field in Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Giants. Blanco returned to Cactus League play Sunday after suffering a mild calf strain last week, and he'll look to keep his hot streak alive against San Francisco. Blanco has registered six hits in 16 at-bats this spring while driving in one run and scoring three times, and the 30-year-old remains in the race for a bench spot on Kansas City's Opening Day roster.

  • Royals' Dairon Blanco: Has edge for fourth outfield spot

    Blanco is viewed as the favorite to be the Royals' fourth outfielder, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports. The 30-year-old Blanco offers reliable defense and speed off the bench, making him better suited to be an extra outfielder. With a utility man (Garrett Hampson) and designated hitter (Nelson Velazquez) with outfield experience, the Royals may opt to have Drew Waters develop more at Triple-A Omaha, while Blanco can be a late-game replacement. Blanco hit .258 with a .776 OPS and 24 stolen bases in just 138 plate appearances last season in a similar role.

  • Royals' Dairon Blanco: Socks home run, steals two in win

    Blanco went 3-for-3 with a home run, one RBI, two runs scored and two steals in Sunday's 5-2 victory over the Yankees. Blanco contributed across the board in his return to the starting lineup after coming off the bench in the two games prior. Sunday's game marked his sixth multi-steal effort of the campaign and he concluded the season with 24 stolen bases in 68 games. In that span, the rookie outfielder slashed .258/.324/.452 with three home runs, 19 runs and 18 RBI in a part-time role.

  • Royals' Dairon Blanco: Runs wild Friday

    Blanco went 1-for-3 with three RBI and three stolen bases in Friday's 7-5 win over the Phillies. Blanco lined a go-ahead two-run single in the sixth inning and plated another run in the eighth. He's up to 12 steals this season, four of which have come over his last four games. The outfielder is slashing .246/.297/.420 with 11 RBI, 10 runs scored, six doubles and three triples through 75 plate appearances. Drew Waters (undisclosed) was scratched from Friday's game, and Blanco would seem most likely to benefit if his fellow outfielder misses more time.

  • Royals' Dairon Blanco: Adds another steal

    Blanco went 0-for-2 with a stolen base and a run scored in Tuesday's 7-6 extra-inning win over the Mets. Blanco is just 2-for-11 over his last seven games, but he's picked up two steals in that span and now has nine thefts this year. The outfielder still doesn't have an everyday path to playing time, as the Royals' outfield went mainly untouched during their sell-off at the trade deadline. Blanco has a .231/.286/.415 slash line with seven RBI, eight runs scored, six doubles and three triples through 70 plate appearances over 30 games.

  • Royals' Dairon Blanco: Logs eighth steal

    Blanco went 0-for-3 with a stolen base in Monday's 5-3 win over the Guardians. Blanco was plunked and stole second in the ninth inning. Aside from a four-hit effort July 18 versus the Tigers, the outfielder has been nothing special with the bat. He's managed eight stolen bases on 11 attempts through 64 plate appearances, but he's slashing a paltry .220/.281/.407 with three triples, five doubles, no home runs, six RBI and seven runs scored.

  • Royals' Dairon Blanco: Homer shy of cycle

    Blanco went 4-for-4 with two doubles, one triple, three RBI, three runs scored and one steal in Tuesday's 11-10 win over the Tigers. Blanco was all over the basepaths Tuesday, knocking three extra-base hits while reaching safely on an RBI bunt single in the fourth and stealing third base in the eighth. Tuesday's outing snapped Blanco out of a slump, as he entered the game 2-for-18 (.111) since June 24. The outburst also set single-game career highs in RBI and runs scored. Blanco is now slashing .250/.304/.462 with seven stolen bases through 22 games this season.

  • Royals' Dairon Blanco: Limited to reserve role

    Blanco is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Twins. With four stolen bases in five attempts in just 43 plate appearances with Kansas City since being called up from Triple-A Omaha on June 12, Blanco is making an impact with his wheels, but he's not getting enough consistent playing time to warrant much attention outside of AL-only leagues. He'll be on the bench for the sixth time in seven games Monday.

  • Royals' Dairon Blanco: Swipes two bags in win

    Blanco went 0-for-3 with a run and two stolen bases in Saturday's 6-4 victory against the Dodgers. Blanco failed to record a walk or hit in the contest, but he still left his mark on the game with his speed. The outfielder reached base on a seventh-inning Dodgers error, and he came around to score after swiping both second and third base. Blanco is batting just .179 (7-for-39) on the season, but he's notched four steals in five attempts over 16 games.

  • Royals' Dairon Blanco: Heads to bench

    Blanco will sit Saturday against the Angels. Blanco was called up Monday and started four straight games, going 4-for-14 with a pair of walks. He's gone 0-for-1 on the basepaths, a disappointment after he swiped 47 bags in 49 games for Triple-A Omaha. Samad Taylor will get the start in left field Saturday.

  • Royals' Dairon Blanco: Steals base as pinch runner

    Blanco recorded his first major-league stolen base in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Twins. Blanco ran for Salvador Perez in the ninth inning and stole second base with two outs. In his five games at the major-league level, Blanco has made only two starts while Michael Taylor and Kyle Isbel are on the COVID-19 injured list. As such, Blanco's playing time is likely to be limited even while the Royals' outfield is a bit shorthanded -- he'll likely be limited to a bench role as he was Saturday.
