KCKansas City Royals
2015 Record: 44-32
#49 Joe Blanton
Jun 29: Blanton fell to 2-1 after allowing five runs on five hits and four walks over just 2.2 innings Monday against Kansas City. Blanton's control abandoned him, as he threw just four more strikes (39) than balls (35). Blanton had been stellar in a pair of starts but is also still stretching out his arm to accommodate the starting role, and it's unclear if he still has the stuff to regularly retire MLB hitters. Blanton had a 6.04 ERA in 132.2 innings in his last MLB stint in 2013, so he'll have to prove his first two starts weren't the flukes.
