Roster Moves – July 8th

Up:

  • 3B Blake DeWitt (to Utility)
  • P Jason Bergmann

Move:

  • U Chase Headley (to OF)

Down:

  • OF Jody Gerut
  • P Charlie Morton

Notes:

  • No FAAB acquisitions for the Atomic Roadrunners this week, as domestic discussions regarding an upcoming trip to San Diego extended through the transaction deadline. Whoops. Just as well.
  • Cover Zero acquired former AaRr P Duaner Sanchez for $0 FAAB. In the process, he released former AaRr P Jon Lieber.
  • Stanimals acquired former AaRr 2B Aaron Miles for $0 FAAB.

Say Goodbye To: Aaron Miles

Aaron Miles was picked up on May 20th, and did not see action with the Atomic Roadrunners. He was acquired due to the lack of backups for the big three middle infielders (Jose Reyes, Brandon Phillips, and Ryan Theriot).

Miles was coming off a nice series against Tampa Bay, and he is batting .458 (22-for-48) in interleague play the last two seasons and .349 (61-for-175) for his career. Manager Tony La Russa continues to rotate Adam Kennedy, Brendan Ryan and Miles at second and hit them in the No. 2 hole in front of Albert Pujols. However, it hurts their Fantasy value since none of them have an everyday role. All three players are just NL-only Fantasy options. (CBS Sports)

Meet the New Guys: Bergmann, Reynolds, Miles

Jason Bergmann: Playing for the lowly Nationals has been rough on young Bergmann, who has at times pitched better than his record suggests. Bergmann went three straight starts from May 15 to May 26 without giving up a run, but has since let nine men score in his last two outings. He looked like a must-add in all Fantasy formats for a while, but has since come down to Earth. Continue to use Bergmann in NL-only formats and keep watch to see if he can bounce back. (CBS Sports)

Greg Reynolds: Reynolds, the second overall pick in the 2006 draft, had his sinker working, breaking four Brewer bats as he picked up his first win in six starts. He remains, however, only a stopgap option for the Rockies and should only be starting in NL-only Fantasy leagues. Reynolds next starts Friday at the Chicago White Sox. (CBS Sports)
