|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(6/29/15) Royals pitcher Joe Blanton failed to get out of the third inning during Monday's start against the Indians, which the Royals lost 6-1.
Blanton surrendered five runs on five hits over 2 2/3 innings of work. He also struck out two and walked four during the outing. He gave up a solo home run to Jose Altuve in the third inning.
It was his first loss of the season. Monday's loss broke his two-game winning streak. Prior to Monday's outing, Blanton had given up a total of two runs over his last two starts.
Royals P Joe Blanton could start Tuesday in Houston

|(6/24/15) Royals right-hander Joe Blanton may make one more start before moving back to the bullpen. Manager Ned Yost has yet to commit to his rotation plans for next week's series in Houston, but those plans may be contingent on the health of fellow righties Yordano Ventura and Jason Vargas.
As of now, it appears Blanton will start the series-opener on Tuesday if neither Ventura nor Vargas are ready, according to the Kansas City Star. Both are said to be close to returning, but Blanton has pitched well enough to warrant another start, which would allow more time for the others to prolong their respective recoveries.

|(6/23/15) Royals pitcher Joe Blanton was solid throughout Monday's start to help lead the Royals to a 4-1 win over the Mariners.
"Anytime you can go six innings and not pitch out of the stretch," manager Ned Yost said, per The News Tribune, "odds are you had a pretty good game."
Blanton allowed one run on two hits over six innings of work to earn his second victory of the season. Blanton also struck out seven and did not walk a batter during the outing. His biggest mistake was giving up a solo home run to Robinson Cano in the first inning.
Monday was Blanton's second start this season. He has given up a total of two runs over his last 11 innings of work. His next expected start is scheduled for Tuesday at Houston.
