Roster Moves – Week 20 – August 17th, 2010

Trade:

  • Atomic Roadrunners receives:
    • 1B Albert Pujols, Cardinals (active at UT)
    • C Geovani Soto, Cubs (active at C)
    • SP Yovani Gallardo, Brewers (active)
    • SP Daniel Hudson, Diamondbacks (active)
  • The Pi Train receives:
    • RP Drew Storen, Nationals
    • SP Madison Bumgarner, Giants
    • 1B Brandon Belt, Giants (minors)

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • 2B Brooks Conrad, Braves ($2 bid), Add to actives

Up:

  • RP Hong-Chih Kuo

Down:

  • C Ronny Paulino
  • OF Lorenzo Cain
  • SP Randy Wells

Cut:

  • 2B Luis Castillo
  • OF Matt Diaz

Notes:

  • Cubs C Geovany Soto is currently on the 15-Day disabled list (retroactive to August 7th) with an injured throwing shoulder.  There are chances that he will not return this season, but the latest news is that he’s scheduled to take batting practice later today, and may return on Sunday, August 22nd.
  • The Pi Train had coveted Storen all summer, and Bumgarner only has one season remaining on his contract.
  • Goodfellas picked up former Roadrunner Danny Espinosa of the Nationals.  There’s a chance he might get a September audition, but he can no longer be protected in the minor leagues (this season).
  • Of the new acquisitions, only Gallardo is protectable (2/$27). Both Soto ($10) and Pujols ($37) have expiring contracts, and Hudson was traded in-season from the White Sox (AL) in the Edwin Jackson deal.
  • In a stunning move, Pirate Smokers made transactions today.  Having only previously made a move on April 27th (Jason Heyward up, Carlos Beltran down), Mark made two pickups (Octavio Dotel and Sergio Casilla), activated Beltran finally (he came off the DL in July) and finally sent down Brandon Webb (60-Day DL, likely to miss all of 2010).
