Notes:

  • Adams had been optioned to Triple-A Memphis on June 22nd, and Allen Craig has taken the majority of the at-bats at 1B now that he’s healthy, and CM Matt Carpenter stays up for the Cardinals as he can cover 3B as well.
  • It was announced shortly after the transaction deadline that OF Jose Tabata had been optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis. I guess the Pirates brass thought the same thing we did.
  • The RoadRunners were out-bid on new Padres 2B Alexi Amarista. We bid $4, and Goodfellas bid $5.  2B/OF Elian Herrera would have been released had that pickup been successful.

  • 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.

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • SP Randy Wells, Cubs ($0 bid), add to actives
  • SP Wade Miley, Diamondbacks ($0 bid), add to actives

Up:

  • OF Drew Stubbs
  • RP Kenley Jansen

  • SP Dillon Gee

Notes:

  • SP Wells had originally been drafted by The Pi Train for $4 in the 2011 WBRL auction, but was released on August 2nd.
  • OF Jose Tabata left Monday’s game with a hand injury. Tests revealed a small fracture in his wrist, and he’ll be out for 10 days, and perhaps the remainder of the season.

Roster Moves – Week 11 – June 7, 2011

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • 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.
