KCKansas City Royals
2015 Record: 16-9
#49 Joe Blanton
Mar 31: Blanton accepted his assignment to Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports. Blanton came out of retirement to join the Royals' camp in February but was never considered a likely candidate to crack the big league roster by Opening Day. The 34-year-old didn't have a bad spring, posting a 2.79 ERA in 9.2 innings of work, but he'll likely stay with the Triple-A club unless the parent team's pitching staff gets hit with the injury bug.
