Nationals' Joe Blanton: Continues to struggle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blanton has a 7.11 ERA and 1.61 WHIP with 29 strikeouts over 31.2 innings this season.

Blanton has little fantasy value at this point with the Nationals shoring up the back end of their bullpen at the trade deadline. The 36-year-old has been slightly better since coming off the DL in June with a 5.59 ERA and 1.40 WHIP across 19.1 innings, but isn't worth consideration in most formats.

Nationals' Joe Blanton: Season struggles continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blanton has a 7.36 ERA and 1.64 WHIP with 17 strikeouts across 22 innings this season.

The 36-year-old has been marginally better since coming off the disabled list June 11 (4.66 ERA and 1.24 WHIP over 9.2 innings) to help lower his ERA from 9.49 when he was first injured. Blanton has already given up eight home runs this season, but could still see higher-leverage situations if he can continue to improve, given the disastrous state of the Nationals' bullpen.

Nationals' Joe Blanton: Activated from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blanton (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Sunday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

Blanton landed on the disabled list May 17 due to right shoulder inflammation but was able to recently navigate through his rehab assignment without any setbacks. He'll rejoin the Nationals' bullpen where he previously held an unsightly 9.49 ERA over his first 12.1 innings of relief this season.

Nationals' Joe Blanton: Roughly one week from return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blanton (shoulder) will need to pitch in back-to-back games prior to returning to full action, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.

Manager Dusty Baker commented that Blanton felt good Thursday evening in the first game of his rehab assignment, and he looked good as well. The veteran fanned two batters in a perfect inning of work for Double-A Harrisburg. If all goes as planned, it seems like Blanton could be back with the Nationals in about a week, although things should solidify as he makes more rehab appearances.

Nationals' Joe Blanton: Gearing up for rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blanton (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Double-A Harrisburg on Thursday, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.

While the length of his rehab assignment hasn't been specified yet, it appears Blanton is on the cusp of a return to the big-league bullpen. The 36-year-old struggled to a 9.49 ERA across 12.1 innings before landing on the DL, but the hope is that a healthy Blanton will be able to regain his form that saw him post sub-3.00 ERAs each of the previous two seasons. A more concrete timetable for his return should become available as he works through his rehab assignment.
