Kyle is doing pretty well in AA right now, honestly, for me I wish the Padres would start falling back from the pack in the west. They just seem to hang around enough, to not move to a youth movement. What I see is that Cantu needs to be needed by another team as a bat 1b/3b off the bench, and Blanks would then take his place. As long as Cantu is on the roster (imo) Blanks wont be. Another possibility is if Ludwick was moved, but I dont think Blanks will even be asked to play LF until next spring, since hes just about a yr removed from TJ.
if him and Rizzo can produce at the major league level, the Padres could have a pretty solid core, with Decker soon to follow, Maybin, Blanks, Rizzo, and Headley.
