Royals manager Ned Yost said Thursday that the team is looking at Joe Blanton exclusively as a reliever this spring.
"The only way he is really going to help us is in the bullpen," Yost said. "We're not going to stretch him out [to be a starter]." It's possible Blanton could be looked at to fill a starting role at some point should injury strike, but for now he's battling for a long relief role. The veteran made just two appearances at Triple-A for the A's last season before shutting things down. Feb 26 - 7:23 PM
