Say Goodbye To: Hatteberg, Barton, Sanchez

Hatteberg is beginning to grow restless on the bench as Joey Votto gets the starts at first base. “It’s tough for me, very tough,” he said. “Not anywhere in my career have I been any good coming off the bench or being a pinch-hitter. I’ve avoided taking one of these jobs my entire career.” Joey Votto is hitting .318, while Hatteberg is 0-for-7 as a pinch-hitter. “I’m trying to get good at this role and I feel bad that I’m not doing it well,” Hatteberg said. First base is in good hands. Joey is going to be a big-time player.” Hatteberg is usually a solid contact hitter with everyday at-bats, but since that is no longer the case, he is nothing more than a NL-only Fantasy reserve.

Cardinals reserve outfielder Brian Barton hasn’t gotten a start since April 24. Barton is a decent reserve outfielder for the Cardinals and the deepest of NL-only leagues, but the fact he rarely gets a start is real discouraging. The Cardinals just have more powerful options ahead of him at the position right now. As a Rule-5 pick, though, Barton figures to at least stick around as a reserve for a full season. (CBS Sports)

The Pirates pulled to 4-3 in the eighth Tuesday when Duaner Sanchez walked in a run — his first in 6 2/3 innings this season. Sanchez has assumed the setup role from struggling Aaron Heilman and will be nothing more than a middle reliever for deeper NL-only formats that use true middle men. (CBS Sports)

Roster Moves – May 6th

FAAB Acquisition:

  • C Chris Coste, Phillies [$0 bid]

Up:

  • OF John Bowker
  • P Nelson Figueroa

Down:

  • OF Andruw Jones
  • P Duaner Sanchez

Cut:

  • Javier Valentin, C, Cincinnati

Notes:

  • Was outbid for re-signing Cubs P Jon Lieber. Cover Zero acquired him for $5 – I had bid $0. Lieber was added to the Cubs’ rotation, and promptly gave up 5 HR in his start. Probably for the best.
  • Former Roadrunner Zach Duke was acquired by Misogynistic Padres for $4 FAAB.

Meet the New Guy: Duaner Sanchez

Duaner Sanchez pitched a perfect eighth and Billy Wagner only allowed a walk in the ninth Wednesday. The Mets said they wanted to expand Sanchez’s role amid Aaron Heilman’s early season struggles, and apparently he is the new setup man. Sanchez and Heilman are solid middle relievers for leagues that use true middle men, while Wagner has not allowed a hit in eight innings this season. Wagner is not yet getting consistent save chances, but he is one closer you shouldn’t worry about in that regard.

Roster Moves – April 29th

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • RP, Duaner Sanchez, Mets [$0 bid, active]

Up:

  • Shane Victorino
  • Andruw Jones

Down:

Notes: I had also bid $0 on the Reds’ Jerry Hairston, Jr., and $0 on Cubs SS Ronny Cedeno.  I was outbid by Tom Ross of Get Off Kong! on both.  He won Hairston with a $4 bid, and Cedeno with a $13 bid.  Yikes.
