Nationals' Joe Blanton: Clean outing in Nats debut Friday

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(3/12/17) Blanton tossed a perfect inning and struck out one in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.

His Nats spring debut went as well as the team could have hoped. Blanton will fill a key role in a bullpen that doesn't yet have an official closer, but he's more likely to be a contributor in holds than saves this season.

(3/11/17) Blanton tossed a perfect inning and struck out one in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.

His Nats spring debut went as well as the team could have hoped. Blanton will fill a key role in the bullpen that doesn't yet have an official closer, but he's more likely to be a contributor in holds than saves this season.

Nationals' Joe Blanton: Logging first spring game Friday

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(3/10/17) Blanton will make his spring debut for the Nationals on Friday, according to manager Dusty Baker, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.

The right-hander, who's enjoyed a career revival as a reliever the last two seasons, was brought in to chew up important appearances in the late innings. He may be considered for save opportunities eventually, but the likelier scenario places him in a set-up role. Blanton remains a useful, cheap gamble for saves and a steady option for holds in leagues that count them.

Nationals' Joe Blanton: Logging first spring game Friday

(3/9/17) Blanton will make his spring debut for the Nationals on Friday, according to manager Dusty Baker, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.

The right-hander, who's enjoyed a career revival as a reliever the last two seasons, was brought in to chew up important appearances in the late innings. He may be considered for save opportunities eventually, but the likelier scenario places him as the eighth-inning setup man, with Shawn Kelley earning the first shot at saves. Blanton remains a useful, cheap gamble for saves and a steady option for holds in leagues that count them.

Nationals' Joe Blanton: Could see different roles

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(3/3/17) Blanton, who signed with the Nationals on Feb. 28, will hold a prominent spot in the bullpen, though general manager Mike Rizzo said his role could vary, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports. "He's been a quality setup man for the last couple years. He's pitched multiple innings. So he could fit as a long man, as a setup man," Rizzo said. "He's just a quality major league reliever that has flexibility."

Zuckerman added that the right-hander could step in to close if a change if needed because of injury or poor performance, though it appears Washington favors to have him as a setup man to start the year, while Shawn Kelley, Blake Treinen and Joe Nathan -- perhaps also Koda Glover -- compete for save chances. The 36-year-old has enjoyed a revival as a reliever in the last two seasons (combined 2.65 ERA, with 9.2 K/9 and 2.4 BB/9), and he even held left-handed bats to a .237 wOBA last year. That may prompt the Nats to have him face tough lefty mashers late in games, though they may also use him for save opportunities with similar circumstances. Blanton isn't a bad speculation in NL-only games and deep mixed setups that value relievers with K and ratio help, yet saves don't look like they'll reside in his immediate future.
