Gregor Blanco LF/CF SF 18 Days

Blanco suffered a contusion on the inside of his knee Monday but the injury is not believed to be serious, broadcaster Andrew Baggarly reports.

Blanco suffered the contusion after getting hit by a pitch in Monday's Cactus League game against the Dodgers. He should be considered day-to-day moving forward, although there doesn't seem to be any fear that his viability will be affected in the long-term.

Blanco was removed from Monday's Cactus League game after getting hit by pitch in the knee, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The extent of the injury is unknown at the time, so it's possible Blanco left just for precautionary reasons. More news should be available after the completion of the game, but consider him day-to-day until there's a further update on his status.

Updating a previous report, Blanco will likely start the season playing left field instead of right, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The news doesn't change Blanco's fantasy value going forward, as he will still see the majority of playing time while Hunter Pence (forearm) is sidelined, with Juan Perez occasionally seeing starts against lefties.

With Hunter Pence (forearm) likely not being able to suit up for Opening Day, Blanco will be asked to fill the void in right field, CSN Bay Area reports.

With Pence being unable to start the season, Blanco is slated to see regular time in the outfield, making him an intriguing short-term option for those looking for speed. In a semi-regular role last season (444 plate appearances), Blanco contributed 51 runs, five homers, and 16 stolen bases while slashing .260/.333/.374.

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 went 3-for-5 Tuesday, collecting a double, a pair of runs, and an RBI in the win over the Rockies.

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.
