Royals Trade Gregor Blanco To The Nationals

The Kansas City Royals announced today they have traded outfielder Gregor Blanco to the Washington Nationals for everyone’s favorite, the player to be named later.


Blanco, 27, was playing with Omaha in a limited role this year after having come over from the Braves last season in the trade that also brought reliever Tim Collins to the Royals. Blanco had been batting .196/.384/.286 for the Stormchasers.


In 49 games last season with Kansas City, Blanco hit .274/.348/.369 with 1 home run and 11 RBI while playing mostly center field.
