The Brewers have agreed to a minors deal with infielder Andres Blanco, according to a club announcement. He’ll head to Triple-A to take the team’s open third base job there.
Blanco, who’ll soon turn 34, had been cut loose by the Giants at the tail end of Spring Training. He was limited during camp by injury and never got much of a shot at a fairly crowded utility infield competition in San Francisco.
Between 2014 and 2016, Blanco provided the Phillies with a surprising .274/.337/.457 cumulative batting line. But he ran into a wall in 2017, ending the year with an ugly .192/.257/.292 output in his 144 trips to the plate.
Hmm, interesting. Not sure what the appeal is from the crew, they have more than enough major league options. I guess they are a bit light at 3B in the minors, I love Erceg’s potential.
It says they have an open spot at third base in AAA…
Brewers have tons of intl money too. Feel like this is a stopgap and emergency in case Shaw dies or something.
Yes!!! The perfect bench player for us in 2011 . Good luck in AAA
Two of four ignorant comments. Way to represent Brewers fans!
