Roster Moves – Week 16 – July 14, 2011

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • SS Zack Cozart, Reds ($8 bid, add to actives at UT)

Up:

  • RP Kenley Jansen

Down:

  • SP Charlie Morton

Cut:

  • OF Charles Blackmon

Notes:

  • Backup bid for Cozart was Padres 2B/3B prospect James Darnell.
  • Lost bid to FAAB Mets RP Bobby Parnell (originally a 2nd-round minor-league selection for the AaRr in 2011).  Bidding went: $20 (Get Off Kong!), $11 (Atomic Roadrunners), $5 (Goodfellas)
  • OF Charles Blackmon was placed on the 60-Day DL July 7th with a fractured foot bone.  He had surgery and is done for the year.
  • SP Edinson Volquez was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on July 7th.
  • This week’s roster moves were on Thursday 7/14 due to the All-Star Break (in Phoenix).

Roster Moves – Week 10 – May 31, 2011

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • C Henry Blanco, Diamondbacks ($1 bid) – add to actives
  • SP Dillon Gee, Mets ($6 bid) – add to actives
  • IF Chris Nelson, Rockies ($0 bid) – add to actives at CM
  • RP Hong-Chih Kuo, Dodgers ($2 bid) – reserve

Up:

  • SP Tim Stauffer

Down:

  • CM Jose Lopez
  • RP Vicente Padilla

Cut:

  • C Buster Posey
  • 1B/OF Brandon Allen
  • MI/3B Mike Fontenot
  • SP Chris Narveson

Notes:

  • What a week – possibly the worst ever in AaRr History
    • On Wednesday, May 25th, Marlins OF Scott Cousins collided with C Buster Posey in the 11th inning. Posey flipped with his spikes stuck in the ground, and suffered ankle ligament tears and a broken fibula. After successful surgery, it was announced that he would be out for the year. I was hoping Posey’s AaRr farewell would be another title parade, not a release in May due to injury.
    • The next day, Thursday, May 26th, the Giants also placed SS/3B Mike Fontenot on the 15-Day DL with a left groin strain.  Fontenot was injured in the same game as Posey was. Fontenot was cut due to the AaRr roster crunch.
    • Later that day, frustrated with their bench (and me frustrated with Jim Tracy”s managing style and roster construction), the Rockies designated 2B/3B Jose Lopez for assignment.  There’s now ten days to see if anyone wants him, or if he’ll accept an assignment to Triple-A (if that’s even an option).  The situation wasn’t resolved for our WBRL transaction deadline, so we’ll hang onto him to see what transpires this week.
    • Sunday, Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen was placed on the 15-Day DL with shoulder inflammation.
    • Monday, Cubs 2B Jeff Baker was placed on the 15-Day DL with a groin strain. I have to keep him active, as I have no other 2B available.
    • Keep in mind, both RP Vicente Padilla (forearm) and OF Nate McLouth (oblique) had been placed on the DL in week 8 (May 19th and 23rd, respectively).  Also, on May 23rd, SP Edinson Volquez was sent down to Triple-A.
  • So, the acquisitions:
    • C Henry Blanco was the best of a bad crop of replacement catchers. He’s a backup with pop.  Dodgers’ C Dioner Navarro was the contingency bid.
    • RP Hong-Chih Kuo re-joins the squad, though he’s still on the 15-Day DL for his anxiety disorder.  Reports have him throwing at 90% in rehab appearances.  Although I really should cut our losses with chasing the Dodger bullpen.  Five different pitchers earned their most-recent five saves. Contingency bids were Mets RP Bobby Parnell and Pirates RP Jose Veras.
    • IF Nelson has some pop and has some positional flexibility.  Maybe Jim Tracy will give him a shot at 2B, while EY Jr. is forcing Dexter Fowler to the pine.  I figured that Tracy would peg reserve Jonathan Herrera as the starter over Lopez after Spring Training.  Contingency bids were Padres 2B Logan Forsythe (in for injured Orlando Hudson). I declined to bid on Giants SS Brandon Crawford because he didn’t have 2B eligibility.
  • On top of all that, OnRoto had a hard drive crash (the “baseball3” server), so FAAB bids weren’t processed until 14 hours later than usual.  Roster moves for this period are being updated manually by the Commissioner – yours truly.

Roster Moves – Week 5 – April 26, 2011

FAAB Acquisition:

  • SP Kyle Lohse, Cardinals ($12 bid, activate)

Up:

  • SP Chris Capuano

Down:

  • RP Kenley Jansen
  • RP Rafael Betancourt

Cut:

  • RP Bobby Parnell

Notes:

  • Parnell was still on the 15-Day DL due to a blood clot in his middle finger.
  • Former RoadRunner Jorge Cantu was picked up by Goodfellas ($0 bid) and he released Marlins SP Chris Volstad.
  • RP Hong-Chih Kuo (back strain) is on-track to come off the DL late this week.

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.
