Roster Moves – Week 11 – June 7, 2011

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.
