3/19 Andres Blanco update
Infielder Andres Blanco has been able to take some grounders when hit straight at him as he rehabs from a strained right knee. Blanco still wears a light brace when he works out. He’s been playing catch and on Friday, began hitting. He suffered the injury on March 6 when his shoe became locked in the dirt trying to make a play at second base.
