Roadrunners’ All-Time Roster Work Completed

It took about a week, but I was finally able to update the AaRr All-Time Roster spreadsheet to include the pitchers (the hitters had been completed several months ago).  The lists themselves will be added to the archive section during the offseason, but here are some interesting tidbits:

Most Seasons in a RoadRunners uniform:

7 seasons:

  • Danny Graves, Reds closer (1999-2005)
  • Robb Nen, closer for Marlins and Giants (1994-2001, except for 1998)

6 seasons:

  • Rondell White, Expos OF (1992-1997)
  • Reggie Sanders, Reds OF (1992-1997)
  • Geoff Jenkins, Brewers OF (1999-2001, 2004-2006)

5+ seasons:

  • Prince Fielder, 1B Brewers, who will likely make it 6 seasons if he is protected for 2010. (2005-present)

5 seasons:

  • Ken Caminiti, 3B (1992-1994 Astros) and (1996-1997 Padres)
  • Khalil Greene, SS Padres (2002-2006)
  • Damian Miller, C (1999, 2001, 2002 Diamondbacks, 2003 Cubs, and 2005 Brewers)
  • Raul Mondesi, OF (1994-1997 Dodgers, 2003 Diamondbacks)
  • Salomon Torres, P (1992-1994 starter for Giants) and (2002 and 2004, reliever for Pirates)

4+ Seasons:

  • Chris Iannetta, C Rockies, who will likely make it 5 seasons if he is protected for 2010. (2006-present)

Also note that there is something about the Joneses sticking around for four seasons:

  • Andruw Jones, OF (2002-2004 Braves, 2008 Dodgers)
  • Bobby J. Jones, P (1992, 1999 Mets, 2001, 2002 Padres)
  • Chipper Jones, 3B (2006-2009, Braves)
  • Todd Jones, RP (1993-1995 Astros, 2004 Reds)

Jones Still Hobbled By Injured Big Toe

Sitting out Monday’s game against the Giants, Chipper Jones is still bothered by a sprained big toe. This despite a clutch pinch-hit single on Sunday against the Blue Jays. “It’s just not ready yet,” Jones said. “I can’t go out there and play defense and run the bases.” Manager Bobby Cox said he doesn’t believe the toe will require a DL stint, but with Yunel Escobar also hurting due to a strained right hip flexor, the Braves’ infield is a bit short-handed right now. Watch his status carefully this week. (Rotworld)

Jones Singles, nets RBI and Run in Pinch-Hitting Appearance

Chipper Jones returned to action as a pinch-hitter on Sunday after being out of the lineup since Friday due to a sprained toe. Jones singled in his lone at-bat, driving in a run and later scoring a run. He should be fine to leave active for this week’s games. (Rotoworld)

Jones: Pinch Hitting, Still Won’t Start with Injury

Chipper Jones is out of the lineup again Saturday due to a foot injury. Chipper actually sprained one of his toes while heading to first base Thursday night. He’s available to pinch hit and should return to the starting lineup on Sunday to help the Braves wrap up a series with the Blue Jays. (Rotoworld)

Jones Day-to-Day with Injured Foot – Out until Monday

Chipper Jones injured his right foot in the sixth inning Thursday. Jones is being called “day-to-day” and it sounds like he won’t be available this weekend. “I just ran down there like normal, and I guess just short-stepped the bag and just caught it perfect, and it snapped,” he said. “It’s almost like you come down wrong on your ankle, and you hear that pop, and you know that you’re going to have a blown-up ankle for a week.” (Rotoworld)

Jones Gets Two Hits and a Steal in Return

Chipper Jones was 2-for-4 with a stolen base in his return to the lineup on Tuesday. He sat out Monday’s game with discomfort in his right elbow. Jones missed just one game and he should be able to play every day now that he is back. (Rotoworld, Rotowire)

Jones May Require Cortisone Shot for Bum Elbow

Chipper Jones may require a cortisone shot in his elbow, which could result in him missing up to three games. “Hopefully [Tuesday] it’ll be better and I’ll be able to get extension to make a throw,” said Jones, who couldn’t straighten his arm on Monday. “If it’s the same [on Tuesday], I might get a shot. But I want that to be a last resort.” The Braves are 1-5 this season when he’s not in the lineup. (Rotoworld)

Jones to Sit After Hyper-extending Elbow

Chipper Jones is expected to miss Monday’s game against the Phillies after suffering a hyperextended elbow on Sunday. Chipper should be all set when the Braves begin a three-game set with the Mets on Monday, but he was in a bit of pain Sunday evening. “That area is pretty jacked up right now,” he said. “But I don’t see it being more than a day. If I can throw, I’ll play. If I can’t, then I won’t. … That area is pretty jacked up right now. But I don’t see it being more than a day,” Jones told the team’s official web site. Jones went 0-for-3 before being replaced by Martin Prado. He had in 29 straight game against the Phillies. Jones hyperextended his elbow on a swing Sunday and left Atlanta’s 4-2 victory at Philadelphia in the seventh inning. Martin Prado started in his place. The All-Star third baseman said Monday that the hyperextension, combined with tendinitis he’s been dealing with most of the season, prevents him from being able to throw across the diamond. Jones, the NL batting champion last year with a .364 average, told the Braves he would be available to pinch hit against the Mets. He took some light swings during batting practice and will be re-evaluated Tuesday. Jones hyperetxended his elbow twice on Sunday, and these minor injuries have really been piling up for the aging 3B over the last couple of years. He’s available to pinch-hit, so he’s likely only going to be out a day or two. (Rotoworld, Rotowire, CBS Sports)

Jones Gets a Day of Rest

Chipper Jones is out of Atlanta’s lineup for Thursday’s game against Florida. Jones is being given the day to rest by Braves manager Bobby Cox because it’s a day game after a night game. Jones isn’t missing any additional action because of the bone bruise in his left thumb, but it is affecting his swing from the left side. Jones has just five hits in his last 24 at-bats. Jones was given the day off Thursday afternoon in Florida. Because he has a good eye, he’s getting on base with walks and sometimes with singles, but he still doesn’t have enough grip strength to hit for extra bases. He’s not yet 100 percent and Fantasy owners in daily lineup leagues can think about reserving him until he is back to full strength. When healthy, the veteran slugger remains an elite option at his position. (Rotoworld, CBS Sports)
