Description: The A's have acquired OF/1B Kyle Blanks from the Padres. SOURCE: Dennis Lin, San Diego Union Tribune
Insight: Blanks joins a crowded outfield that already includes Craig Gentry, Coco Crisp, Yoenis Cespedes and Josh Reddick. First base won't be an option for him either with Brandon Moss getting most of the starts there. Blanks has only logged ten at bats at the major league level this season.
 
9/3/2013 2:08:00 PM
Description: Padres outfielder/first baseman Kyle Blanks is hitless in 11 at-bats against Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner.
Insight: Blanks began the year as a reserve but developed into an everyday player because of injuries to Carlos Quentin and Yonder Alonso. However, Tuesday is not the day to start him.

Description: Padres outfielder/first baseman Kyle Blanks has been placed on the disabled list because of Achilles tendinitis.
Insight: Blanks began the year as a reserve but developed into an everyday player because of injuries to Carlos Quentin and Yonder Alonso. Now he's dealing with an injury of his own. He's been in a slump, hitting just .105 in his last six games.
 
Hot6/16/2013 9:39:00 AM
Description: Kyle Blanks is hitting .327 with four homers, 10 RBI and a 1.022 OPS for the Padres in June.
Insight: He hit his seventh homer of the season Saturday against the Diamondbacks. The slugger should have a starting job at least until Yonder Alonso returns from a fractured hand in a few weeks. The 26-year-old Blanks has hit 24 home runs with a .969 OPS in 397 at-bats at the Triple-A level and 27 in 556 at the major league level, but 2013 will be the first season in the majors in which he has had more than 200 at-bats.

Description: Padres outfielder Kyle Blanks suffered a cut above his left eye Sunday against San Francisco. SOURCE: Corey Brock, MLB.com
Insight: He needed four stitches to close the gash. Blanks has been starting in left while Carlos Quentin serves his eight-game suspension for fighting Dodgers starter Zack Greinke. Blanks (.250, 1 HR, 3 RBI) won't have any fantasy relevance when Quentin returns.

Description: Kyle Blanks made his first appearance of spring training to, going 0-1 as a pinch hitter.
Insight: He is expected to start the season on the DL following Tommy John surgery. He isn't worth a mixed league roster spot.

Description: 1B/OF Kyle Blanks has reported to Padres camp in better shape and is focused on his rehab. SOURCE: San Diego Union-Tribune
Insight: Because of his elbow reconstruction, Blanks will not be ready for Opening Day. If you have a league with a deep bench, draft him late and stash him in the hopes that he can put up 15-20 HR's.

Description: Kyle Blanks will miss the rest of the season, as he will require Tommy John surgery. SOURCE: FOLLOW THE PADRES ON TWITTER

Insight: It is good news that he does not need surgery, but when he returns he may not be very effective. He will be out until August at the earliest, so it is best to cut ties with him.
