Roster Moves – Week 10 – June 5th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • RP Shawn Camp, Cubs ($2 bid, add to actives)
  • RP Brad Lincoln, Pirates ($1 bid, add to actives)
  • 2B/OF Alex Castellanos, Dodgers ($1, reserve)

Up:

  • 2B/3B Elian Herrera (to MI)
  • 3B Chris Johnson (to CM)
  • OF Tony Campana

Move:

  • SS Zack Cozart (from MI to SS)

Down:

  • 1B Matt Adams (from CM)
  • OF Jose Tabata
  • SS Troy Tulowitzki (15-Day DL)
  • SP Mike Minor

Cut:

  • SP Tim Stauffer
  • SP Jake Westbrook
  • SP Archie Bradley

Notes:

  • On May 31st, SS Troy Tulowitzki was placed on the 15-Day DL with a strained left groin.
  • SP Tim Stauffer has no timetable for his return from a sprained elbow injury, so I needed the roster space.
  • SP Jake Westbrook has lost his effectiveness, with an 8.55 ERA and 1.850 WHIP over the past three weeks.
  • 2B/OF Alex Castellanos was the fallback bid for Braves SS Andrelton Simmons.  I bid $6, and Get Off Kong! bid $7 (he had already released him). GOK had bid on Castellanos as 3rd contingency for $2.
  • A contingency bid for Shawn Camp was Pirates (and 2012 RoadRunner) Jason Grilli. Shoeless Jews got him for $1.

 

Roster Moves – Week 7 – May 15th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • IF Elian Herrera, Dodgers ($0 bid, add to actives at UT)
  • SP Christian Friedrich, Rockies ($5 bid, add to actives)
  • SP Archie Bradley, Diamondbacks prospect ($0 bid, reserve)

Cuts:

  • RP Bryan Shaw
  • UT Cody Ransom
  • 2B Daniel Descalso

Notes:

  • The RoadRunners came up short on bidding for new (temporary) San Diego closer Dale Thayer.  Bids: $15 (Misogynistic Padres), $6 (RoadRunners), $5 (Get Off Kong).
  • IF Elian Herrera was called up by the Dodgers to play 3B, and he can hit for average and has speed.  Last week’s pickup of Cody Ransom was a week late, as he put up an 0-fer the week, and Ryan Roberts is back in place again.  From RotoWorld: The 27-year-old Herrera was batting .358 with a .381 on-base percentage, nine stolen bases, and he stole at least 30 bases in each of the previous three seasons.
  • SP Friedrich re-joins the RoadRunners, this time in the major leagues. Filling in for injured Rockies starters, he now has 17 strikeouts through two outings. Sure, they’ve come against the Padres and Giants, but that’s still awfully impressive, and what was supposed to be a short stint in the majors now seems poised to turn into something more. He struck out 10 Giants and allowed 1 run in seven innings last night. Friedrich was the RoadRunners first selection in the 2010 Minor League draft (1st Round, 2nd drafted, 4th overall).
  • It was time to pull the trigger on picking up Diamondbacks pitching prospect Archie Bradley, who should be a great keeper.  The right-hander is currently 5-1 with a 2.14 ERA and 0.88 WHIP with 44 K’s in 40 innings (and only 14 hits!) at Single-A South Bend.
  • Padres SP Tim Stauffer was activated from the 15-Day DL yesterday in time for his start at Washington.  Stauffer was a bit rough, allowing 7 hits, 3 walks and 5 K’s in 5 innings. 4 runs were allowed (3 Earned). He also allowed a home run to Bryce Harper, the youngest person to hit a homer in the majors in 14 years. He’ll stay reserved for another week until he shakes out the rust.
