Infielder Blanco outrighted off Phillies' 40-man roster

The Phillies announced over the weekend that they've outrighted infielder Andres Blanco off their 40-man roster.

The 30-year-old switch-hitter posted a .277 average while slamming a home run and driving in three runs in 25 games at the big league level this season.

In the minors, Blanco sported a .241/.314/.285 slash line in 45 contests with the Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs.  He missed time in 2014 with an oblique issue.

Prior to this year, the Venezuela native had last appeared in the Major Leagues with Texas in 2011.  Blanco also has big league time with Kansas City and the Cubs.

Blanco was originally signed by the Phils as a minor league free agent prior to the 2012 season.

Harry Kalas Phorever...

Legendary broadcaster Harry Kalas passed away today. Harry collapsed while preparing to call today's game against the Washington Nationals. So many phans will feel as though we've lost a member of our own families. I feel as though I've lost a part of myself, but Harry enhanced my love of the great sport we call baseball and I will always carry that love, and Harry, in my heart. I've stated on this page before that I consider Harry more of a Phillie than anyone who wears the uniform as an active member of the roster. Harry Kalas was a Phillie. Moreso, Harry Kalas was the Phillies. Please share your thoughts and memories of Harry in the comments section, or send them to PhoulBallz (at) verizon (dot) net.
