  • MI Elian Herrera
  • RP Jose Arredondo

Notes:

  • MI Elian Herrera was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on July 13th.
  • 2B Kolten Wong is a minor-league protectable prospect for the Cardinals. Today was the deadline for minor-league protections.
  • RP Juan Carlos Oviedo’s path back to the majors took a major detour, as he is now undergoing Tommy John surgery at Triple-A New Orleans since being activated from the Restricted List.
  • The only other minor league prospect added to WBRL rosters was D’Backs OF A.J. Pollock, added by X-Men for a $4 bid.

 

Roster Moves – Week 13 – June 26th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • SP Jake Westbrook, Cardinals ($2, add to actives)
  • SP Dallas Keuchel, Astros ($3, add to actives)

Up:

  • 3B Chris Johnson
  • SP Brad Lincoln

Down:

  • 3B Todd Frazier
  • SP Christian Friedrich
  • RP Jose Arredondo

Cut:

  • RP Josh Lindblom
  • RP Shawn Camp

Notes:

  • Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki underwent groin surgery on Wednesday, June 20th, and will be out up to 8 weeks (end of August). Tulo injured his groin during one of his final rehab appearances (hamstring) with Triple-A Colorado Springs.
  • Cardinals 1B Matt Adams was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Friday, June 22nd, where he will again play every day. Cardinals corner man Matt Carpenter returned from the DL, and with OF Jon Jay returning, 1B/2B/OF Allen Craig will likely take over primary 1B duties.
  • Cardinals SP Jake Westbrook rejoins the 2012 Roadrunners.  He was released on June 5th, and since has gone on a tear, so my mistake there. I bid $2 to get him back, and The Pi Train bid $1.
  • We were the only bidders on Houston SP Dallas Keuchel, who in two starts (14 innings) has a complete game, 1-0 with a 1.29 ERA and 1.07 WHIP. Not many strikeouts, but we can use all the help we can get, and he’s at the Padres for his next start.
  • We lost the bidding for Pirates SP Kevin Correia, who has done well lately. RoadRunners bid $1, but The Pi Train got him for a $1 bid (I’m in 3rd place, he’s in 7th.)

 

Roster Moves – Week 12 – June 19th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • RP Jose Arredondo, Reds ($1, Add to Actives)
  • RP Josh Lindblom, Dodgers ($1, Add to Actives)

Up:

  • MI Elian Herrera
  • OF Jose Tabata (to UT)

Move:

  • SS Zack Cozart (from MI)
  • CM Todd Frazier (from UT)

Down:

  • SS Troy Tulowitzki
  • 3B Chris Johnson (from CM)
  • RP Shawn Camp

Cut:

  • RP Wilton Lopez
  • C Welington Castillo

Notes:

  • Cubs C Welington Castillo was activated from the 15-Day DL (knee) on Thursday, June 14th, and was optioned to Triple-A Iowa four days later (June 18th) with the activation of starting C Geovany Soto. Castillo still retains rookie eligibility.
  • Braves RP Kris Medlen was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday, June 15th, but in a surprise move, Jair Jurrjens (picked up by Misogynistic Padres for $0) was named the interim starter for the Braves, while Medlen will stay in middle-relief.
  • Astros RP Wilton Lopez was placed on the 15-Day DL with a strained elbow on June 15th.
  • Former 2012 RoadRunner Cody Ransom was picked up by his 3rd WBRL team of the season, with Shoeless Jews snagging the now Brewer for a $1 bid. He was released May 29th by Cover Zero.

 

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)

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.

Up:

  • 1B Matt Adams (to CM)
