Profile: Coming off a solid 2015 campaign, it appeared Blanco had maybe come into his own. He hit well enough to be 18 percent better than league-average in terms of wRC+ and posted a league-average WAR for a second consecutive season. It was down from the two seasons before that, but partly because he didn't play as much. By Off, Blanco had the best season of his career. But it all fell apart in 2016. He regressed mightily. Among players with 250 plate appearances, Blanco was among the worst 10 percent of players in all of baseball. His BABIP took a dive while his ground ball rate actually increased from his 2015 numbers, further complicating his struggles. Where he saw a difference was the amount of balls hit hit hard. His Hard% rate fell by almost 3.5 percent. While that didn't go to his Soft%, it did go to his Med%. His defense also dipped, as he played most of his time in right field and had -7 DRS in just 230 defensive innings. He might be able to regain his 2012 through '15 form, but he's 33 years old and would have to be used in the right situation for that to happen. (Dustin Nosler)

The Quick Opinion: For the previous four seasons, Blanco had been more than a quality fourth outfielder. He was basically a league-average hitter and player before seeing his production in all phases of the game drop significantly. He hit fewer balls hard than in year's past, which helped to bring his BABIP down enough to stifle his offensive production.
