News: Blanks (Achilles) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Sunday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: Blanks has already missed more than 60 days with the Achilles tendinitis, so the transaction won't do much to change his predicament. He remains confined to a walking boot for at least the next week or two, after which he'll be able to begin taking part in more baseball-related activities.(RotoWire, )

News: Blanks has been diagnosed with left Achilles tendinitis, and there's no timetable for a return, CSN California's Joe Stiglich reports. Impact: At this point it's safe to part ways with Blanks in most formats, as there's a little more than a month left, and he won't be playing everyday even if he's able to return this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Blanks is experiencing a setback in his rehab, and is now having problems with both feet, CSN California's Joe Stiglich reports. Impact: Originally it was his calf that forced him to the 15-day DL, but the A's are now giving him an MRI on his feet to see what the new situation is. It's now looking like the soonest he could return to the A's would be sometime in September.(RotoWire, )
