Roster Moves – 2010 End-of-Season

Following each WBRL season, all non-protectable players are released back into the player pool, and reserved players not eligible for protection in the minor leagues are promoted to the active roster:

Up:

  • SP Mat Latos
  • SP Wade LeBlanc
  • RP Aroldis Chapman
  • RP Kenley Jansen
  • 1B Adam LaRoche
  • OF Marlon Byrd
  • 3B Casey Blake

Released / WBRL contract expired:

  • 1B Albert Pujols
  • 3B Chase Headley
  • SP Josh Johnson
  • SP Clayton Kershaw
  • SP Johnny Cueto

Released / Signed After Protection Deadline:

  • C A.J. Ellis
  • 2B Jonathan Herrera
  • SS Angel Sanchez
  • OF Cameron Maybin

Released / Non-Protectable Due to AL-NL Trade:

  • SP Dan Hudson

Remaining in Minors:

  • OF Trayvon Robinson

Final Roster Moves – Week 26 – September 28th, 2010

Up:

  • MI Angel Sanchez
  • OF Lorenzo Cain (to UT)
  • SP Randy Wells
  • RP Tyler Clippard

Down:

  • MI Jonathan Herrera
  • OF Marlon Byrd
  • SP Johnny Cueto
  • RP Kenley Jansen

Notes:

  • Cueto is pretty much gassed for the year, having matched Latos in giving up 8 ER in 1-1/3 IP last week.  Meanwhile, Wells has rebounded and is pitching solidly again.
  • Byrd may not play again this season.  He has a swollen eye after a foul-tip hit him in the face – he’s been inactive since Friday. Cain has been hot of late, so we’ll try to hold off the masses in the .AVG category.

Roster Moves – Week 25 – September 21st, 2010

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • C A.J. Ellis, Dodgers ($0 bid), Add to actives
  • 2B Jonathan Herrera, Rockies ($0 bid), Add to actives at MI

Up:

  • RP Kenley Jansen

Down:

  • MI Angel Sanchez
  • SP Mat Latos

Cut:

  • MI Brooks Conrad
  • C Geovany Soto

Notes:

  • Herrera re-joins the RoadRunners this season.  He was previously FAAB’d for $6 in Week 12 (June 22nd) as backup for Troy Tulowitzki, who went on the DL with the broken wrist.  He was then released in Week 17 (July 27th).
  • Latos was sent down for the rest of the season. He is completely gassed, and he gave up 8 earned in 1-1/3 innings this week.  That’s bad news for the Padres’ playoff hopes.
  • Geovany Soto is out for the remainder of the season.  Soto underwent shoulder surgery on Sunday, and with a three-month recovery time, should be ready for the start of Spring Training.
  • No other FAAB bids were recorded this week.
  • Former two-time 2010 AaRr outfielder Matt Diaz endeared himself to the Philadelphia fans by tripping and aiding in the capture of  a fan that ran onto the field in the bottom of the 7th inning last night.

Meet the New Guy: Angel Sanchez

Sanchez, who came over to the Astros from Boston in exchange for C Kevin Cash on July 1st, has actually done a decent job of replacing Tommy Manzella (who was out with injury), hitting for a decent average, at least. Manzella was batting just .212 with 16 RBI and a home run through 59 games before fracturing his left index finger in late June. Sanchez, meanwhile, is hitting .279 with 15 RBI in 32 games since being acquired. As with fantasy, teams must ride the hot hand.(Rotoworld)

Roster Moves – Week 24 – September 14th, 2010

FAAB Acquisition:

  • SS Angel Sanchez, Astros ($0 bid) – Active at MI

Up:

  • 3B Chase Headley
  • OF Drew Stubbs (to UT)
  • SP Edinson VolquezCMCM
  • SP Yovani Gallardo
  • SP Ian Kennedy

Move:

  • UT Albert Pujols (to CM)

Down:

  • CM Adam LaRoche
  • MI Brooks Conrad
  • RP Aroldis Chapman
  • RP Tyler Clippard
  • SP Josh Johnson

Cut:

  • MI Geoff Blum

Notes:

  • The Marlins have shut down SP Josh Johnson for the 2010 season. He has an inflamed shoulder and a pulled back muscle, and he missed a throwing session over the weekend.  Since Johnson’s WBRL contract expires after this season, I guess it’s goodbye.
  • Hitting roster moves for this week were made purely on a batting average and stolen base basis.  So LaRoche (who contributes only in HR and RBI and is slumping a bit) goes to the bench for the first time in 2010.  Similarly, slumping 3B Chase Headley gets activated over similarly-slumping Casey Blake, due to Blake’s lack of mobility.
  • The only other team to make FAAB pickups, second-place Get Off Kong!, picked up former 2010 Roadrunner Luis Durango of the Padres.
  • Contingent selections for Sanchez were Colorado’s Jonathan Herrera (previously on the 2010 Roadrunners), and Cubs’ MI Darwin Barney.
