Roster Moves – Week 24 – September 6, 2011

FAAB Acquisitions:

Up:

  • OF Drew Stubbs
  • RP Kenley Jansen

Down:

  • OF Jose Tabata

  • 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.
  • Reds C Devin Mesoraco and Padres 1B Anthony Rizzo were called up as September rosters expand.

Roster Moves – Week 23 – August 30, 2011

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • 3B Kevin Kouzmanoff, Rockies ($2 bid), add to reserves

Up:

  • SP Dillon Gee

Cut:

  • RP Jose Veras

Roster Moves – Week 20 – August 9, 2011

Trade:

Acquired from Cover Zero:

  • OF Ryan Braun (2/$42), Brewers
  • RP Chad Qualls (2/$7), Padres

Traded to Cover Zero:

  • RP Joel Hanrahan (1/$5), Pirates
  • SP Shelby Miller (3/$8), Cardinals (minors)

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • RP David Hernandez, Diamondbacks ($2 bid), Add to actives
  • RP Wilton Lopez, Astros ($0 bid), Add to actives
  • RP Jose Veras, Pirates ($0 bid), Add to actives

Down:

  • SP Charlie Morton
  • SP Dillon Gee

Cut:

  • SP Kyle Lohse
  • UT Jeff Baker
  • OF Nate McLouth

Notes:

  • Trade: OF Braun was selected for $42 in the 2011 WBRL auction. RP Qualls was selected in the 2nd Round of the minor league draft, thus the $7 salary.  Both are protectable for 2012 and 2013.  Hanrahan is protectable for only 2012, but Miller is protectable as a minor-leaguer.  Miller was the first-overall minor league selection by Misogynistic Padres ($8 price), who released him April 19th.  The RoadRunners picked him up for $1 FAAB bid on June 14th.
  • Additional FAAB bids were placed on new Padres 1B/UT Jesus Guzman for $1, and for Braves OF Jose Constanza ($1).  They were acquired by Get Off Kong! (Guzman – $15), and by Cover Zero (Constanza – $94).
  • RP Hernandez had previously been acquired by Get Off Kong! on April 12th (released June 28th) and July 5th (released August 2nd).  His salary is $5 from that first pickup.
  • OF Chris Heisey was placed on the 15-Day DL on August 6th with an oblique injury.  He is expected to be out 3-4 weeks.

Roster Moves – Week 10 – May 31, 2011

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • C Henry Blanco, Diamondbacks ($1 bid) – add to actives
  • SP Dillon Gee, Mets ($6 bid) – add to actives
  • IF Chris Nelson, Rockies ($0 bid) – add to actives at CM
  • RP Hong-Chih Kuo, Dodgers ($2 bid) – reserve

Up:

  • SP Tim Stauffer

Down:

  • CM Jose Lopez
  • RP Vicente Padilla

Cut:

  • C Buster Posey
  • 1B/OF Brandon Allen
  • MI/3B Mike Fontenot
  • SP Chris Narveson

Notes:

  • What a week – possibly the worst ever in AaRr History
    • On Wednesday, May 25th, Marlins OF Scott Cousins collided with C Buster Posey in the 11th inning. Posey flipped with his spikes stuck in the ground, and suffered ankle ligament tears and a broken fibula. After successful surgery, it was announced that he would be out for the year. I was hoping Posey’s AaRr farewell would be another title parade, not a release in May due to injury.
    • The next day, Thursday, May 26th, the Giants also placed SS/3B Mike Fontenot on the 15-Day DL with a left groin strain.  Fontenot was injured in the same game as Posey was. Fontenot was cut due to the AaRr roster crunch.
    • Later that day, frustrated with their bench (and me frustrated with Jim Tracy”s managing style and roster construction), the Rockies designated 2B/3B Jose Lopez for assignment.  There’s now ten days to see if anyone wants him, or if he’ll accept an assignment to Triple-A (if that’s even an option).  The situation wasn’t resolved for our WBRL transaction deadline, so we’ll hang onto him to see what transpires this week.
    • Sunday, Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen was placed on the 15-Day DL with shoulder inflammation.
    • Monday, Cubs 2B Jeff Baker was placed on the 15-Day DL with a groin strain. I have to keep him active, as I have no other 2B available.
    • Keep in mind, both RP Vicente Padilla (forearm) and OF Nate McLouth (oblique) had been placed on the DL in week 8 (May 19th and 23rd, respectively).  Also, on May 23rd, SP Edinson Volquez was sent down to Triple-A.
  • So, the acquisitions:
    • C Henry Blanco was the best of a bad crop of replacement catchers. He’s a backup with pop.  Dodgers’ C Dioner Navarro was the contingency bid.
    • RP Hong-Chih Kuo re-joins the squad, though he’s still on the 15-Day DL for his anxiety disorder.  Reports have him throwing at 90% in rehab appearances.  Although I really should cut our losses with chasing the Dodger bullpen.  Five different pitchers earned their most-recent five saves. Contingency bids were Mets RP Bobby Parnell and Pirates RP Jose Veras.
    • IF Nelson has some pop and has some positional flexibility.  Maybe Jim Tracy will give him a shot at 2B, while EY Jr. is forcing Dexter Fowler to the pine.  I figured that Tracy would peg reserve Jonathan Herrera as the starter over Lopez after Spring Training.  Contingency bids were Padres 2B Logan Forsythe (in for injured Orlando Hudson). I declined to bid on Giants SS Brandon Crawford because he didn’t have 2B eligibility.
  • On top of all that, OnRoto had a hard drive crash (the “baseball3” server), so FAAB bids weren’t processed until 14 hours later than usual.  Roster moves for this period are being updated manually by the Commissioner – yours truly.
