For Blanco it’s a ‘White Shark’ Players Weekend D-backs outfielder paying tribute to his Winter League team

When it came time for Gregor Blanco to pick a nickname, he drew a little inspiration from his time playing winter ball in Venezuela — as well as from former teammate Pablo Sandoval.

Blanco will sport the name “White Shark” on the back of his No. 5 jersey during Players Weekend from Friday-Sunday, when players will wear special jerseys with nicknames on the back.
