Blanco going to make the team
The Rangers have found their utility infielder. Andres Blanco was acquired less than 48 hours ago from the Cubs and the Rangers have already figured out he is their best option for utility infielder.
He could even be the Rangers starting second baseman if Ian Kinsler is not ready for Opening Day. Blanco is starting at second base for the Rangers against the Rockies on Monday. Club officials have quickly fallen in love with Blanco’s superior defensive skills and that’s what they are looking for in a utility infielder.
