by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/31/15) Royals RHP Joe Blanton agreed to accept an assignment to Triple-A Omaha. Blanton signed a minor league contract with the team on February 13 and was invited to camp as a non-roster player. 

Blanton was 1-0 with a 2.79 ERA in three games this spring. 

Royals' Joe Blanton unsure if he'll opt out of deal

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/29/15) Royals pitcher Joe Blanton is unsure of whether he'll opt out of his minor-league deal with the team or not, the Kansas City Star reports.

"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 can opt out of his deal on April 1 or on May 15 if he's not on the major-league roster. He has allowed three earned runs in 9 2/3 innings this spring.

Royals looking at Joe Blanton as a reliever

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/26/15) The Royals will use Joe Blanton as a reliever, according to MLB.com.

Blanton has not pitched in the majors since 2013. While he started 20 games that season, the Royals view him strictly as a reliever. "The only way he is really going to help us is in the bullpen," manager Ned Yost said. "We're not going to stretch him out [to be a starter]."

Blanton posted a 6.04 ERA over 132 2/3 innings in 2013. He'll compete for a job in the Royals bullpen this spring.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/13/15) The Royals and pitcher Joe Blanton have agreed to a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. The team later confirmed.

Blanton last pitched in the majors in 2013 for the Angels, posting a 2-14 record with a 6.04 ERA with 108 strikeouts in 132 2/3 innings. In 2014, Blanton played with the Athletics Triple-A team the Sacramento River Cats, where he made two starts.

If he makes it to the majors, Blanton will make $1 million. It also has $3 million in incentives and Blanton can request his release if not on the major league roster on April 1 and May 15, according to Heyman.
