FANTASY BASEBALL NEWS: GIANTS TO SIGN KYLE BLANKS TO MINOR LEAGUE DEAL

The San Francisco Giants are putting the finishing touches on a minor league contract for free agent 1B/outfielder Kyle Blanks according to multiple sources and the official signing could be announced Tuesday morning.  The Giants were looking to add some power and versatility to their lineup for 2016 and Blanks fills both roles with his home run-leaning bat an ability to both play the outfield and first base. 

Analysis:  Not much to see here as Blanks has underachieved throughout his whole career.  There is no doubt the guy has some serious power but contact issues have always undermined him.  Could be mildly interesting if Blanks can carve out a starting spot but until then don't bother.
