Blanco has never hit much in the major leagues outside of a hot 2015 where he did a lot of damage off the bench as a pinch hitter and third baseman. That year he hit .292/.360/.502 with 7 home runs. Interestingly, third base has been Blanco's worst position defensively.
However, after a couple of down years, Blanco hit .271/.362/.435 at AAA for the Brewers in 2018. Steamer projects Blanco for a .232/.298/.355 batting line. With his league average defense at second and third base, as well as the ability to cameo at third base, first base, and the outfield corners, he provides useful depth. If he catches fire, the Braves could enjoy one last hurrah from Blanco.
