  • SP Dillon Gee

Notes:

  • SP Wells had originally been drafted by The Pi Train for $4 in the 2011 WBRL auction, but was released on August 2nd.

Roster Moves – Week 11 – June 7, 2011

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • OF Charles Blackmon, Rockies ($0 bid), Add to actives at UT

Up:

  • 1B Anthony Rizzo (to CM)
  • SP Edinson Volquez

Move:

  • CM Chris Nelson (to 2B)
  • UT Jon Jay (to OF)

Down:

  • 2B Jeff Baker
  • OF Matt Holliday
  • SP Tim Stauffer

Cut:

  • 2B Jose Lopez

Notes:

  • It is widely speculated that the Padres will call up Rizzo on Wednesday to play 1B, as 1B Brad Hawpe has been starting in right field the past two days.  At Triple-A Tucson, Rizzo is batting .365, with 16 homers and 20 doubles.
  • Jose Lopez was released, as he’s still in MLB limbo – designated for assignment, but no takers, and no announcements since that move was made.
  • OF Matt Holliday was placed on the 15-Day DL with a quadriceps strain. He’s eligible to return June 16th.
  • 2B Jeff Baker still has another week until his return from his groin strain. He is expected to return June 14th.
  • SP Edinson Volquez is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Louisville this week.
  • New OF Charles Blackmon was called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs, where he was hitting .337 with 10 homers, 49 RBI and 12 steals thus far.  OF Dexter Fowler was placed on the DL, and Blackmon is exptected to play in right field, with Carlos Gonzalez moving to center, though he may split time with Ryan Spilborghs.
  • Goodfellas released former 2011 RoadRunner Jorge Cantu.
  • Get Off Kong! selected former 2011 RoadRunner Chris Capuano as a contingency bid, but won the bidding for Rockies arm Rex Brothers.
  • On the Atomic RoadRunners eight-man reserve roster, only two players are not on the disabled list: SP Tim Stauffer and Catching prospect Devin Mesoraco. In addition to Baker and Holliday, OF Nate McLouth, and all three Dodgers relievers (Kuo, Padilla, Jansen) are on the DL as well.

Roster Moves – Week 1 – March 31st, 2011

[Roster moves from Draft]

Up:

  • RP Bobby Parnell
  • 2B Jeff Baker (to UT)

Down:

  • SP: Edinson Volquez
  • 1B Anthony Rizzo (from UT)

Notes:

  • 1B Anthony Rizzo was sent to minor league camp last week, and will likely open the season at AA San Antonio. Update: He’s opening the season at AAA Tucson
  • SP Mat Latos was placed on the 15-Day DL due to shoulder issues – an inflamed bursa sac.  The move was retroactive to March 22nd, so he should be eligible to come off the DL on April 6th.
  • SP Edinson Volquez has been very wild in Spring Training, and we are hesitant to run him out to the mound on Opening Day – taking a wait-and-see approach.
  • 2B Jeff Baker was in the mix for the starting 2B job for the Cubs, but will likely split time with Darwin Barney and Blake DeWitt
  • 2B Jose Lopez is still in flux, as the Rockies manager Jim Tracy is giving utilityman Jonathan Herrera a long look at 2B.
