Jul 8 - 1:14 AM

Gregor Blanco went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Marlins.

Blanco launched a solo dinger off of Marlins starter Jose Fernandez in the fifth inning. He's now working on a nine-game hitting streak. When the streak started, he was slashing .274/.345/.411. He's worked those numbers up to a far more robust line of .318/.384/.452. Blanco has never held a season-slugging mark higher than .374 in his career, so we're somewhat doubtful that this is more than a hot streak, but if he's floating on the wire in deeper leagues, there's no better time to take advantage of his bat, as this might be as good as it gets for the outfielder.
Jul 2 - 3:13 PM

Gregor Blanco went 3-for-4 with an RBI against the Marlins on Wednesday.

Blanco has 14 hits during an eight-game hitting streak, pushing his average all of the way up to .314. He's been a savior for the Giants with two starting outfielders on the DL and the third, Angel Pagan, limited of late.
Jul 1 - 10:11 PM

Gregor Blanco reached four times from the leadoff spot Tuesday, going 2-for-3 with two walks against the Padres.

Again one of the league's best part-timers, Blanco is hitting .283 with 16 walks in 127 at-bats. He'll continue to play quite a bit with Hunter Pence set to miss at least a couple of more weeks.
