Roster Moves – Week 19 – July 31st, 2012

(no actual roster moves)

Notes:

  • July 27th – SP Zack Greinke was traded from Milwaukee Brewers to the Los Angeles Angels for SS Jean Segura and two other minor leaguers
  • July 29th – 3B Chris Johnson was traded from the Houston Astros to the Arizona Diamondbacks for 3B Bobby Borchering and CM/OF Mark Krauss
  • July 30th – RP Brad Lincoln was traded from the Pittsburgh Pirates to the Toronto Blue Jays for OF Travis Snider
  • July 31st – OF Hunter Pence was traded from the Philadelphia Phillies to the San Francisco Giants for former 2012 RoadRunner OF Nate Schierholtz, C Tommy Joseph, and a minor leaguer.
  • With the spectacular flame-out of Francisco Cordero with the Astros, the RoadRunners attempted to re-acquire previously-released RP Wilton Lopez. He was successfully acquired by Shoeless Jews for a $17 bid, while Get Off Kong! had bid $3, and the RoadRunners had bid $2.

 

Roster Moves – Week 18 – July 24th, 2012

Up:

  • 3B Chris Johnson (to UT)

Move:

  • OF Scott Moore (from UT)

Down: 

  • OF Tony Campana

Notes:

  • The RoadRunners placed a bid on prospective new Astros closer Francisco Cordero for $2. X-Men won the bidding for $53, and Misogynistic Padres bid $27.

 

Roster Moves – Week 16 – July 17th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • 2B Logan Forsythe, Padres ($2 bid, Add to Actives at MI)
  • RP Luke Gregerson, Padres ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • 2B Kolten Wong, Cardinals ($1 bid, Reserve)

Up:

  • SP Ben Sheets

Move:

  • CM Todd Frazier (from UT)
  • UT Scott Moore (from MI)

Down: 

  • RP Brad Lincoln
  • RP John Axford
  • 3B Chris Johnson (from CM)

Cut:

  • RP Juan Carlos Oviedo
  • MI Elian Herrera
  • RP Jose Arredondo

Notes:

  • MI Elian Herrera was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on July 13th.
  • 2B Kolten Wong is a minor-league protectable prospect for the Cardinals. Today was the deadline for minor-league protections.
  • RP Juan Carlos Oviedo’s path back to the majors took a major detour, as he is now undergoing Tommy John surgery at Triple-A New Orleans since being activated from the Restricted List.
  • The only other minor league prospect added to WBRL rosters was D’Backs OF A.J. Pollock, added by X-Men for a $4 bid.

 

Roster Moves – Week 15 – July 12th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • MI Scott Moore, Astros ($2 bid, Add to Actives)
  • SP Ben Sheets, Braves ($1 bid, Reserve)
  • RP Juan Carlos Oviedo ($1 bid, Reserve)

Up:

  • C Devin Mesoraco

Down: 

  • MI Elian Herrera

Cut:

  • SP Dallas Keuchel
  • SP Christian Friedrich
  • C Steve Clevenger

Notes:

  • Keuchel had been optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on July 5th.
  • Juan Carlos Oviedo, due to sketchy documentation and subsequent government crackdown, is the former Leo Nunez, closer for the Marlins for several seasons.
  • Longer week due to the All-Star Game at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, MO – the NL won 8-0, and MVP was Giants OF Melky Cabrera

 

Roster Moves – Week 14 – July 3rd, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • C Steve Clevenger, Cubs ($1 bid, Add to Actives)

Up:

  • 3B Todd Frazier (to UT)

Down: 

  • OF Jose Tabata (from UT)
  • C Devin Mesoraco

Cut:

  • 1B Matt Adams

Notes:

  • Adams had been optioned to Triple-A Memphis on June 22nd, and Allen Craig has taken the majority of the at-bats at 1B now that he’s healthy, and CM Matt Carpenter stays up for the Cardinals as he can cover 3B as well.
  • It was announced shortly after the transaction deadline that OF Jose Tabata had been optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis. I guess the Pirates brass thought the same thing we did.
  • The RoadRunners were out-bid on new Padres 2B Alexi Amarista. We bid $4, and Goodfellas bid $5.  2B/OF Elian Herrera would have been released had that pickup been successful.
