He actually only has 2 HRs. He does have 7 doubles though. Supposedly he looked a solid defender in rookie ball, but I have yet to read any scouting reports regarding his defense this year. Blanke is a bit older than his competition in Kanny, but he indeed a legitimate prospect. If he keeps hitting he should be in W-S soon.
