Player Notes
Joe Blanton will start against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Advice: Blanton was originally slated to move to the bullpen with Yordano Ventura coming off the disabled list, but the Royals will need another start from him because of Tuesday's doubleheader. Edinson Volquez will start Sunday.

Joe Blanton surrendered four runs on nine hits in five innings of work against the Twins on Saturday.

Advice: Three of those four runs scored in the first inning, when Blanton served up a two-run homer to Joe Mauer and an RBI out to Aaron Hicks. He settled down after the initial hiccup and finished with four strikeouts and no walks. Pitching between the bullpen and the rotation, Blanton is the owner of a 3.74 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and a 30/7 K/BB ratio over 33 2/3 innings. Up next on the schedule, a Thursday afternoon home date with the Rays.

Sat, Jul 4 Rotoworld
Joe Blanton had a short evening, going only 2 2/3 innings after giving up five runs in Monday's loss to the Astros.

Advice: Blanton had pitched well in his first two starts back in the rotation ahead of Monday's start, but the Astros had him figured out. They plated two runs in the second and three in the third on five hits and four walks. The right-hander struck out only two. Including his time in the bullpen, Blanton owns a 3.14 ERA with a 1.15 WHIP and a 26/7 K/BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings. He has a date at home against the Twins in his next start.
