Roster Moves – Week 3 – April 17th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • RP Santiago Casilla, Giants ($23 bid, add to actives)
  • RP Bryan Shaw, Diamondbacks ($6 bid, add to actives)
  • RP Jason Grilli, Pirates ($5 bid, add to actives)


  • OF Nate Schierholtz


  • OF Jose Tabata
  • RP Fernando Salas
  • RP Wilton Lopez


  • C/CM Jordan Pacheco
  • RP Eric O’Flaherty
  • OF Chris Denorfia


  • Rockies’ Jordan Pacheco was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs to allow the promotion of 5th starter Drew Pomeranz. Fellow utilityman Chris Nelson pretty much won the 3B job over the first two weeks.
  • Giants’ Santiago Casilla is the presumptive favorite to gain saves in place of closer Brian Wilson, who is getting a second opinion on his elbow by Dr. James Andrews tomorrow, and will likely have Tommy John surgery.  Other candidates are Sergio Romo (protected by Stanimals), lefty Jeremy Affeldt, and Javier Lopez (both still available).  Bidding was tight: $23 (AaRr), $22 (Shoeless Jews), $17 (X-Men), and $13 (Get Off Kong). Casilla has only had 3 appearances, and he has a 0.00 ERA, a 1.12 WHIP, and 2 K’s in 2.2 innings.
  • The Diamondbacks’ Bryan Shaw has gotten two saves on days that closer J.J. Putz hasn’t been available, one on a day that presumptive closer-in-waiting David Hernandez was available.  Bidding: $6 (AaRr), $4 (Shoeless Jews), and $3 (X-Men). Shaw has a 0.00 ERA and 0.50 WHIP in 6 one-inning appearances, with 2 saves and 8 K’s.
  • Pirates’ RP Jason Grilli was anointed set-up guy to closer Joel Hanrahan last week, and he’s done quite well thus far, with a 1.80 ERA and 0.60 WHIP in five appearances.  I was the only bidder for Grilli.
  • In the FAAB run, Get Off Kong, Shoeless Jews, and X-Men were shut out of acquisitions.  Only the Atomic RoadRunners and Stanimals made successful bids. Stan got Pirates backup catcher Mike McKenry in place of 4th string Jake Fox, a move long overdue.
  • Fernando Salas was sent down due to his rough numbers thus far.  The set-up guy for closer Jason Motte, Salas has had some rough outings thus far, with a 4.91 ERA and 1.91 WHIP, with 7 hits and 6 K’s in 6 appearances (3.2 innings).


Roster Moves – Week 1 – April 4th, 2012


  • OF Juan Pierre (to UT)
  • RP Eric O’Flaherty


  • OF Domonic Brown (from UT)
  • SP Wily Peralta


  • The Phillies optioned OF Domonic Brown to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on March 23rd.
  • The Brewers optioned SP Wily Peralta to Triple-A Nashville on March 18th.
  • Tonight is Opening Night, with the World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals visiting the newly-renamed and -branded Miami Marlins in the gaudy new Marlins Stadium. A handful of games are scheduled for Thursday and Friday, and then everyone plays starting Saturday, April 7th.
