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.

Blanco stayed red-hot Friday, going 1-for-2 with a home run, three RBI, and a stolen base in the 13-2 win over Milwaukee.
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.
Gregor Blanco LF/CF SF 24 Days
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.

Gregor Blanco went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Thursday's loss to the Cardinals.
The Giants surely wish Blanco would have had a game like this when he was still hitting leadoff, but they'll take it from the No. 8 spot. The nice day elevates the outfielder's batting line this season to a still-horrid .236/.311/.303.

Gregor Blanco will be the Giants' starting left fielder for their playoff opener against the Reds on Saturday.
This news isn't terribly surprising as Blanco has gotten the call against most right-handed hurlers while Xavier Nady generally takes on southpaws. He hit just .244/.333/.344 with five homers and 34 RBI during the regular season.
Gregor Blanco LF/CF SF Sep 20 '12
Gregor Blanco (shoulder) finished 3-for-4 with two RBI in his return to the Giants' lineup Wednesday.
Blanco also stole a base, his 23rd in 26 tries this season. The fleet-footed outfielder had been out of the Giants' starting lineup for only a handful of days with a sore shoulder and should be fine going forward.
