Roster Moves – Week 8 – May 22nd, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • 1B Matt Adams, Cardinals ($12 bid, add to reserves)
  • 3B Todd Frazier, Reds ($5 bid, add to reserves)

Cuts:

  • OF Nate Schierholtz
  • SP Wily Peralta (Minors)

Notes:

  • SP Tim Stauffer was placed back on the 15-Day DL on 5/18, retroactive to 5/15 with the same forearm strain that caused him to miss the first six weeks of the season.
  • Brewers SP Wily Peralta was a casualty of a RoadRunners roster crunch. While being ranked as the top Brewers’ prospect, he hasn’t been sharp thus far at Triple-A Nashville,  owning a 1-4 record, with 5.36 ERA, 1.40 WHIP with a 38:22 K:BB ratio in 42 innings.
  • Giants OF Nate Schierholtz has been passed on the depth chart by Gregor Blanco, and this was with Aubrey Huff out and Brandon Belt playing at 1B exclusively.
  • New acquisition Matt Adams will likely see plenty of time at 1B for the Cardinals, as Lance Berkman injured his knee (6-8 weeks minimum) and Allen Craig is also on the DL.  AaRr won the bidding for $12, while Get Off Kong! bid $5 and Misogynistic Padres bid $2.
  • New acquisition Todd Frazier will likely be receiving playing time due to Scott Rolen’s extended DL stint (some suggesting he’ll be out for the year).  Additionally, Juan Francisco was traded to Atlanta, and Juan Cairo, well, he’s 38-years old. Misogynistic Padres was the only other bid, at $2.
  • Former 2012 RoadRunner Cody Ransom (3B, Diamondbacks) was picked up for a $0 bid by Cover Zero.  Ransom was designated for assignment earlier in the day by Arizona, so, whoops.
  • Former 2012 RoadRunner Daniel Descalso (IF, Cardinals) was acquired by Shoeless Jews for a $0 bid. Shoeless Jews had no 2B on their roster, as Paul had (wisely) released Emmanuel Burriss in April, and alternate Eric Young, Jr had only appeared in 5 OF games to that point.
  • Former 2012 RoadRunner Jordan Pacheco (3B, Rockies) was listed as a contingency bid for Get Off Kong ($3, received Travis Ishikawa instead), and Misogynistic Padres ($0, received Adam Kennedy instead).

 

Roster Moves – Week 7 – May 15th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • IF Elian Herrera, Dodgers ($0 bid, add to actives at UT)
  • SP Christian Friedrich, Rockies ($5 bid, add to actives)
  • SP Archie Bradley, Diamondbacks prospect ($0 bid, reserve)

Cuts:

  • RP Bryan Shaw
  • UT Cody Ransom
  • 2B Daniel Descalso

Notes:

  • The RoadRunners came up short on bidding for new (temporary) San Diego closer Dale Thayer.  Bids: $15 (Misogynistic Padres), $6 (RoadRunners), $5 (Get Off Kong).
  • IF Elian Herrera was called up by the Dodgers to play 3B, and he can hit for average and has speed.  Last week’s pickup of Cody Ransom was a week late, as he put up an 0-fer the week, and Ryan Roberts is back in place again.  From RotoWorld: The 27-year-old Herrera was batting .358 with a .381 on-base percentage, nine stolen bases, and he stole at least 30 bases in each of the previous three seasons.
  • SP Friedrich re-joins the RoadRunners, this time in the major leagues. Filling in for injured Rockies starters, he now has 17 strikeouts through two outings. Sure, they’ve come against the Padres and Giants, but that’s still awfully impressive, and what was supposed to be a short stint in the majors now seems poised to turn into something more. He struck out 10 Giants and allowed 1 run in seven innings last night. Friedrich was the RoadRunners first selection in the 2010 Minor League draft (1st Round, 2nd drafted, 4th overall).
  • It was time to pull the trigger on picking up Diamondbacks pitching prospect Archie Bradley, who should be a great keeper.  The right-hander is currently 5-1 with a 2.14 ERA and 0.88 WHIP with 44 K’s in 40 innings (and only 14 hits!) at Single-A South Bend.
  • Padres SP Tim Stauffer was activated from the 15-Day DL yesterday in time for his start at Washington.  Stauffer was a bit rough, allowing 7 hits, 3 walks and 5 K’s in 5 innings. 4 runs were allowed (3 Earned). He also allowed a home run to Bryce Harper, the youngest person to hit a homer in the majors in 14 years. He’ll stay reserved for another week until he shakes out the rust.

Roster Moves – Week 4 – April 24th, 2012

FAAB Acquisition:

  • OF Tony Campana, Cubs ($5 bid, add to actives at UT)

Up:

  • RP Wilton Lopez

Down:

  • 2B Daniel Descalso (from UT)

Cut:

  • RP Jason Grilli

Notes:

  • With SP Chris Narveson going on the DL (and subsequently being out for the year with a torn labrum), Brewers called up SP Wily Peralta on Saturday, but sent him back down to Triple-A Nashville on Monday.  Peralta basically assisted in long relief while Kameron Loe was on the bereavement list.
  • There were no other bids on OF Tony Campana, who looks to get a large amount of playing time in CF after the Cubs traded Marlon Byrd to the Red Sox.  Campana already had 2 steals his first night.  I was pretty certain that I would be out-bid, but I’ll take an extra 20 steals any day.

Roster Moves – Week 2 – April 10th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • SP Jake Westbrook, Cardinals ($0 bid, add to actives)

Up:

  • C Devin Mesoraco
  • 2B Daniel Descalso (to UT)

Moves:

  • OF Juan Pierre (from UT)

Down:

  • OF Nate Schierholtz
  • C Jordan Pacheco
  • SP Tim Stauffer

Cut:

  • SP Chris Volstad

Notes:

  • SP Tim Stauffer was placed on the 15-Day Disabled List on Thursday, April 5th with a right   triceps injury.  This was announced after the Week 1 transaction deadline.
  • The Pi Train was the other bidder for Jake Westbrook ($4 bid), as he was 4th contingency for Anthony Bass, 3rd contingency for Lucas Harrell, 4th contingency for Kirk Nieuwenhuis,  3rd contingency for Justin Maxwell, all of which ended up being moot.
