The Outfield Fly Ruling

In a very brief pro debut with the Dominican Braves, Blanco slashed .307/.374/.330. He showed a good feel for the zone, walking more (10) than he struck out (7). He got started a little late – he’s already 20 and hasn’t played in the US yet – but the results so far indicate more good than bad, and there’s some positional versatility to his game as well. His size is also notable – at 5’10, 150 lbs, he’s one of the skinniest players in the minors. (- B. Blackwell, ’16-’17 offseason)
