Gregor Blanco posts ominous video thanking San Francisco

Gregor Blanco, the San Francisco Giants backup outfielder with a penchant for making plays in big moments, posted a video to fans of the organization early Tuesday.

It could be signaling his departure from the team as pointed out by Twitter user, GiantsProspectTalk.

The Instagram video is complete with the sad song from Fast & Furious and features several screenshots of Blanco’s big moments with the Giants.

Blanco, who signed a two-year deal before the 2015 season, has been with the team for five years, collecting two World Series rings in the process.

Although his career numbers — hitting .257/.337/.358 since 2012 — won’t jump off the page for casual fans, Blanco’s impact for the orange and black was undeniable.

His most memorable moment, of course, was a diving catch in Triples Alley of AT&T Park to preserve Matt Cain’s perfect game in the 2012 season.

Blanco is a 32 year old free agent outfielder who should get another shot with another club if his Instagram post is indicative of his status with the Giants.Gregor BlancoSan Francisco Giants
