Blanco (ankle) left Sunday's season finale with a sprained ankle after colliding with outfielder Angel Pagan, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Blanco suffered the injury when Pagan cut Blanco's legs out from under him while attempting to make a sliding catch. X-rays on Blanco's ankle came back negative, and he will undergo an MRI on Tuesday. With the Giants' season over, Blanco will have the offseason to get the ankle healthy, and should have no reason to miss time at the start of 2014.
