Gregor Blanco (hip) showed no signs of rust in his return to the Giants starting lineup on Friday, going 2-for-4 plus a walk in a victory over the Cardinals.

Gregor Blanco was a late scratch from Wednesday's lineup with a left hip strain.

Blanco was replaced in the lineup by Juan Perez. It's another blow to a team ravaged by injuries this year. The Giants should provide a clearer outlook on Blanco shortly.

Gregor Blanco went 2-for-3 with four runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Braves.

Blanco walked twice along with his two hits, scoring all four times he reached base on the evening. Blanco is getting more playing time in recent days with Angel Pagan ailing. The 31-year-old is hitting .295/.376/.420 overall.

Gregor Blanco went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Padres.

Blanco broke a scoreless tie in the third inning with a solo blast off of Ian Kennedy. Though he's hit only three home runs and knocked in 18 runs on the year, he owns a productive .304/.375/.435 batting line.

Gregor Blanco went 3-for-4 and scored a run as the Giants topped the Mets on Tuesday.

Blanco reached on an infield single and later scored on a ground out in the third inning for the Giants' first run. The outfielder is having a career year, batting .314/.378/.440 with two home runs and 17 RBI with 28 runs scored.
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.
