Blanco has now tripled three times this year in limited action, and he also added a walk to his impressive day at the plate. His playing time has eroded in the past couple of years and that's continued into 2016, as he had only started two games since the Giants' opening series against the Brewers. After his two-hit performance, he's now hitting .273/.304/.545 in 23 plate appearances.

He is under contract with the Giants for $3.9 million in 2016.
