Joe Blanton is unsure whether he'll use the opt-out clause in his minor league contract.
Blanton will not make the Royals' Opening Day roster, but they hope he'll report to Triple-A Omaha. The veteran right-hander can opt-out of this deal on April 1 or May 15 if he's not in the majors. "We’ll see when that comes," Blanton said. "I don’t know. I haven’t really thought about it yet, to be honest with you." Blanton holds a 2.79 ERA over 9 2/3 innings this spring. Mar 29 - 11:46 AM
