Gregor M. Blanco (born December 12, 1983 in Caracas, Venezuela) is a Venezuelan professional baseball player. A left-handed outfielder, he plays for the Kansas City Royals of Major League Baseball.

Blanco signed with the Atlanta Braves on July 4, 2000 as an undrafted free agent. He beat out Josh Anderson in Spring Training to become the Braves backup outfielder in 2008. He has begun to see regular playing time after Mark Kotsay injured his back on May 26.

Gregor Blanco is the center fielder and leadoff hitter for Tiburones de La Guaira in the Venezuelan Winter League, hitting .315 (178 AB) in the 2006-07 season, .345 (229 AB) in the 2007-08 season (finishing 2nd in the MVP Award) and .349 (172 AB) in the 2008-09 season. He was recently called up to the majors because of Jordan Schafer's struggles.
