Gregor Blanco LF/CF SF 12 Days

Blanco agreed to a two-year, $7.5 million contract with the Giants on Sunday, avoiding arbitration, the San Francisico Chronicle reports.

Blanco's final two years of arbitration are now taken care of with his new contract. The 31-year-old outfielder will earn $3.6 million in 2015 and $3.9 million in 2016, according the report. Blanco put up another consistent season in 2014, batting .260/.333/.374 with five home runs and 38 RBI. He drew a good amount of walks (41) again last season, and limited his strikeouts to just 77 over 393 at-bats. He also displayed his abilities on the base paths, nabbing double-digit bases for the fourth time in the last five seasons. There's no reason to suggest his numbers won't be similar in 2015, assuming he receives similar playing time.

Blanco continues to rake as of late, putting together a modest seven-game hitting streak in which he is batting .360 (9-for-25) with two homers, eight RBI, and a stolen base over that span. He isn't a long-term option, but he is seeing everyday at-bats and should be owned while hot.

Blanco has been swinging a hot bat over the past week, hitting .294 (5-for-17) with a three homers, seven RBI, and a stolen base in his last five starts.

Blanco was 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run in San Francisco's win over Colorado on Thursday afternoon.

He has just three dingers on the season, but two of those have come over the last four days. He's providing a little spark right now so the Giants will try to keep finding ways to get him into the lineup, but if he cools off, he'll likely return to his role as a fourth outfielder.

Blanco went 2-for-5 with a double, a pair of runs scored, and his second home run of the season against the Nationals on Sunday.

Blanco was filling in for the banged up Angel Pagan (hamstring). While this was an encouraging effort from Blanco, he will return to his role on the bench when Pagan returns to the field Monday.

Blanco went 1-for-4 with a run and a stolen base in Monday's win over the Mets.

Blanco has been seeing regular playing time while Angel Pagan (back) and Brandon Belt (concussion) have been sidelined. However, Belt has already returned to the field and Pagan is expected back in the next couple of days, so Blanco's run of regular playing time is likely coming to an end. His value was limited even as an everyday player, so he will become fantasy irrelevant in most leagues when he returns to being a fourth outfielder.
