Roster Moves – Week 12 – June 14, 2011

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • C Ronny Paulino, Mets ($6 bid), add to actives
  • 1B Paul Goldschmidt, Diamondbacks ($3 bid), reserve
  • SP Shelby Miller, Cardinals ($1 bid), reserve

Up:

  • OF Matt Holliday
  • SP Tim Stauffer

Down:

  • SP Kyle Lohse
  • OF Jon Jay

Cut:

  • C Henry Blanco
  • RP Vicente Padilla
  • RP Hong-Chih Kuo

Notes:

  • It was announced that RP Vicente Padilla would require surgery on the bulging disc in his neck, the same injury that had him open the season on the DL. He’ll be out a while.
  • Padilla’s teammate on the Dodger’s DL, Hong-Chih Kuo, was released for the second time this season. Kuo had been protected from 2010, was released on May 24th when he went on the DL with an anxiety disorder, was picked up May 31st when his rehab starts went well, and has since hit a bit of a wall.  So, as I’m tired of chasing non-existent Dodgers saves, he and Padilla are gone, as (while all this was going on), Jonathan Broxton is rehabbing as well, and will likely beat him back to the active roster.  We still have Kenley Jansen, however.
  • C Ronny Paulino was released by Cover Zero last week.  (He had been FAAB’d for $0 bid by Cover Zero on May 17th). He then proceeded to go 4-for-4 with a homer and three RBI. This is Paulino’s fourth visit on the RoadRunners.  He was on the roster as a Pirate in 2006 and 2007, and also was on the 2010 Championship squad, before he was suspended for 50 games (PED use) with 42 games left to play.  He’s still no Buster Posey, but he’s seeing more action than Henry Blanco.
  • 1B Paul Goldschmidt leads the minor leagues in home runs at Double-A Mobile, and is rumored to be called up after the All-Star break. In 233 at-bats for the Bay Bears, he is batting .348, with 21 home runs, 59 RBI and 6 steals. Plus, he sports a 53/46 BB/SO ratio.  His OPS is 1.156 – that’s ridiculous.
  • SP Shelby Miller was the No. 1 overall WBRL minor league pick by Misogynistic Padres, but was released April 19th.  Thus his $8 salary. He was the 19th overall pick in 2009 out of a Texas high school, and he is (as per Keith Law) the best pitching prospect in the minors. He dominated Single-A, and was promoted two weeks ago to Double-A.  Probably won’t get called up in 2011.
  • Former 2011 RoadRunner Chris Capuano was grabbed for $12 FAAB by Get Off Kong! (and Chris Narveson was his second contingency bid at $2).
  • Speaking of Narveson, he was selected by Goodfellas for $1 FAAB (GOK!’s $2 would have gotten him), beating out Misogynistic Padres and their $0 bid.
  • Injury Update: 2B Jeff Baker was activated Monday from the 15-Day DL.  OF Matt Holliday will be activated Thursday 6/16 from the 15-Day DL.  OF Nate McLouth remains on the 15-Day DL, but will return in the next week.  RP Kenley Jansen is making rehab appearances, and is likely a week away from returning.

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 9 – May 24, 2011

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • SP Charlie Morton, Pirates ($6 bid) – add to actives
  • OF Jon Jay, Cardinals ($5 bid) – add to actives at UT
  • 1B/OF Brandon Allen, Diamondbacks ($0 bid) – reserve

Down:

  • OF Nate McLouth
  • SP Tim Stauffer

Cut:

  • RP Hong-Chih Kuo
  • SP Chris Capuano
  • RP Rafael Betancourt

Notes:

  • RP Vicente Padilla (active roster) was placed on the 15-Day DL on May 19th with a forearm strain, the same injury that had him on the DL to open the season.
  • SP Edinson Volquez (already reserved) was optioned to Triple-A Louisville following another implosion, and then comments that the Reds’ offense had let the team down.
  • OF Nate McLouth was placed on the 15-Day DL yesterday with a strained oblique. McLouth injured himself in his first at-bat on Sunday.
  • New SP Charlie Morton re-joins the RoadRunners. Morton was on the 2008 squad from June 17th to August 26th as a young fifth starter just called up from the Braves.  Morton’s 2008 AaRr player card can be found here.
  • 1B/OF Brandon Allen was the contingency bid for 1B Juan Miranda.  Miranda is now the de-facto starting first basemen for the Diamondbacks, as 1B Russell Branyan was designated for assignment last weekend.  Unfortunately, the RoadRunners released him on May 3rd, after an extended slump and only occasional at-bats.  Shoeless Jews bid $8 (we bid $6). Allen was original selected for $1 in the 2011 WBRL auction by Cover Zero (Steve Sharik), but was released April 26th, 2011. Allen is currently the starting 1B at Triple-A Reno for the Diamondbacks.
  • Other contingency bids:
    • For Charlie Morton – Mets SP Dillon Gee ($3), Pirates SP Jeff Karstens ($0).  X-Men FAAB’d Karstens for $2 FAAB
    • For Jon Jay – Braves CM/OF Eric Hinske ($0 bid), Giants OF Nat Schierholtz ($0 bid).  Shoeless Jews FAAB’d Schierholtz for $0.

 

Roster Moves – Week 6 – May 3, 2011

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • RP Fernando Salas, Cardinals ($5 bid), add to actives
  • UT Mike Fontenot, Giants ($0 bid), add to actives at CM

Up:

  • RP Rafael Betancourt

Down:

  • SP Ryan Dempster
  • SP Chris Capuano
  • CM Jose Lopez

Cut:

  • 1B Juan Miranda
  • SP Trey McNutt

Notes:

  • Fontenot was the contingent bid for Jason Bourgeois, who was claimed by Get Off Kong! for $5.  Fontenot should see time at SS and 3B, as Pablo Sandoval is out 4-6 weeks with a broken wrist.
  • This is Fontenot’s second stint with the RoadRunners.  Previously he was on the 2007 squad, acquired in trade with The Pi Train on July 3rd, along with 3B Chipper Jones and OF Corey Hart for SP Roy Oswalt, SP Derek Lowe, and OF Carlos Quentin. Fontenot was active at 2B for the remainder of the 2007 season.
  • RP Kenley Jansen was optioned to AAA Albuquerque on Sunday, May 1st. He has struck out 22 batters in 13 1/3 innings — good for a 14.9 K/9 mark — but he’s also walked eight and allowed 11 runs (9 of which were in two bad outings).

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 4 – April 19, 2011

Up:

  • SP Tim Stauffer
  • RP Rafael Betancourt

Down:

  • SP Esmil Rogers
  • SP Chris Capuano

Notes:

  • RP Hong-Chih Kuo was placed on the 15-Day DL on Saturday, April 16th, with a lower back strain.
  • Since Get Off Kong! and Stanimals had not submitted their league fee, GOK! FAAB bid of $6 for Kyle Lohse (release Adam Wainwright) was reversed.

Roster Moves – Week 2 – April 5, 2011

Up:

  • OF Chris Heisey
  • SP Edinson Volquez
  • SP Chris Capuano

Down:

  • OF Matt Holliday
  • RP Kenley Jansen
  • SP Mat Latos

Notes:

  • Holliday will miss at least this week following his emergency appendectomy Friday.  While not on the 15-Day DL, the latest report has him back Monday at the earliest.
  • Originally thought to be eligible to come back from the DL tomorrow, Latos won’t be returning until mid-April, as he’s building stamina in extended spring training.
  • No FAAB bids this week.  The new eight-man reserve roster makes shuttling in role players on the cheap difficult.  Chris Narveson would have been a candidate to be released, but he went and pitched six shutout innings yesterday.
