Though he was taken in part as a discount pick, Blanton is a quality athlete with the tools to stay at shortstop. The 6-foot-3, 175-pounder has good actions to go with solid range and arm strength at shortstop. Though there are some questions on his bat, he has led Richland in RBIs in each of his two seasons there. His plus speed is his biggest offensive weapon, and he also has some gap power.
