Andres Blanco

Introducing the “Eric Bruntlett” for a championship team needing depth. Andres Blanco has played every position in his career, excluding pitcher and catcher. Similar to Peter Bourjos, Andres Blanco has a specific role on a contending team as their primary utility player off of the bench.

Pete MacKanin said Blanco is one of his favorite players because he does a little bit of everything. He is hitting .320 over his past seven games and .274 on the season in Philadelphia.

The Chicago Cubs would be a fit for Blanco, as they only have one pure infield depth player. A championship contender, the Cubs can rest their young stars heading into the playoffs and still have a productive bat and glove off the bench with Andres Blanco.
