News: Blanks (calf) said Wednesday that he's "doing better, a lot better," Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: The training staff cleared Blanks to resume running on the calf last Friday, and manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday that the 27-year-old is at least a week away from beginning a rehab assignment. Blanks will likely need to get through a handful or more of minor league games before the A's feel comfortable activating him, so a return in mid-August seems like a best-case scenario.(RotoWire, )
