Daily Rundown – Day 23 – April 23rd, 2013

 Note from OnRoto: 

At around 2:00 AM last night, we had a hardware error on the server which houses the messages and trades databases. We have recovered all the data, will be restoring the MESSAGE SYSTEM and the TRADE SYSTEM later this evening.

Thanks for your patience, and our apologies about the incovenience.

VERY IMPORTANT!! If you can see this note, then you were on the affected server. We have moved your league to a new server and had restored your data from a backup generated at 4:00 AM on 4/23. WE HAVE NOW RECOVERED ALL MOVES made after 4:00 AM yesterday, and WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF RESTORING THEM. If you did not make any moves today, them this will go quickly. If you have made changes, we’ll have to work with you on making sure we get all old and all new moves in properly. We’ll start on this shortly, and expect to have everyone restored later this evening. Thanks for your patience — we are working as quickly as we can on this.
The upshot?  Some of these statistics may be suspect, or may not include roster moves affecting lineups. We’ll see.

Notes:

  • Jim Henderson recorded his fifth save with a hitless ninth Tuesday against the Padres. It’s going to be interesting to see what the Brewers do here with John Axford turning in his sixth straight scoreless appearance tonight. Henderson has allowed just one run in 10 innings this season, so there’s no reason to make a change right now. Still, the Brewers may go back to Axford if he keeps it up for another week or two. (Rotoworld)
  • Rob Brantly went 3-for-5 with two doubles and four RBI in the Marlins’ win over the Twins on Tuesday. Brantly and Miguel Olivo have been sharing time at catcher for the Marlins this year, but Brantly made a strong case for more playing time on Tuesday. Brantly doubled twice off Twins starter Mike Pelfrey and now has six doubles on the season. The 23-year-old is the closest thing the Marlins have to a “catcher of the future” at this point. (Rotoworld)
  • Edward Mujica tallied his third save of the season Saturday in the Cardinals’ win over the Nationals. Mujica entered a 2-0 game with Bryce Harper standing on second base. He got Ian Desmond to pop out to shallow right field and Chad Tracy to fly out to deep right. “Chief” has taken over the Cardinals’ ninth-inning gig and is now building job security. He needs to be owned in all mixed fantasy leagues. (Rotoworld)
  • Mike Minor yielded three runs in six innings to pick up the win as the Braves topped the Rockies 4-3 in the first game of Tuesday’s doubleheader. Minor was both unlucky and lucky in the third. Dexter Fowler’s leadoff triple would have been a single in any park other than Coors with its huge gaps, and it was followed by a little tapper to second from Josh Rutledge that went for an RBI single. He caught a break right after that, though, as Carlos Gonzalez’s bid for a double down the right-field line landed just foul. The three runs Minor allowed today were his most since Aug. 31, a span of nine starts. He’s now 3-1 with a 1.80 ERA. (Rotoworld)
  • Michael Wacha continued his domination of Triple-A hitters Tuesday, going seven innings, striking out six, and giving up one run on three hits and two walks. Wacha now has a 1.96 ERA across 23 innings for Memphis. However, the Cardinals’ major-league staff is so deep that we’re unlikely to see him until September, barring injuries or a trade. (Rotowire)
  • Russell Martin extended his hit streak to eight games with an eighth-inning single off Cole Hamels during the Pirates’ 2-0 win over the Phillies on Tuesday. Of course, he was just 1-for-4 on the night and left five men on base, but that’s par for the course with Martin these days. While the streak has been nice and he’s got four multi-hit games in his last six, he still batting just .241 on the season. (Rotowire)
  • Giants outfielder Hunter Pence went 3 for 5 with a run scored Tuesday against Arizona. The outfielder doubled for the third time and is now hitting .277/.318/.458. Concerns about his power playing at home in San Francisco seem a bit overblown in the early going: He has three doubles and two home runs in 11 home games with a .500 slugging percentage. (CBS Sports)
  • Brewers starting pitcher Hiram Burgos will make his second career start Friday night at Los Angeles, MLB.com reports. Manager Ron Roenicke could have opted to skip Burgos’ turn in the rotation this time through with the Brewers having an off-day Thursday, but with Kyle Loshe being considered questionable to make his next start due to a pinkie injury, Roenicke decided to stick with the 25-year-old. Burgos (1-0) tossed five innings in his first career start against the Cubs last Saturday, allowing just one run on five hits. He also registered one strikeout, while becoming the first Brewers pitcher to win his major-league debut since Yovani Gallardo in 2007. (CBS Sports)
  • Braves third baseman Chris Johnson has earned the trust of his new coaching staff, as manager Fredi Gonzalez has hinted that Johnson could be an every-day player moving forward, even when the team gets healthy. A .397 batting average through his first 17 games certainly makes that decision easier. Johnson established himself as the type of hitter who can consistently sustain high batting averages on balls in play, but should we expect a regression soon? Johnson has flashed some decent power so far, with six extra-base hits in 63 at bats, but his real value is coming from that batting average, which is being propped up by a .460 BABIP. Even with a skill set that has produced an excellent .353 mark for his career, Johnson is a bit over his head right now. Johnson proved himself to be a decent Fantasy option a year ago, slugging 15 home runs and 76 RBI with a .281 batting average, so this is not to say he cannot be that again. Just expect the batting average-related boost in his production to come down soon. (CBS Sports)
    Kyuji Fujikawa (forearm) has yet to throw a bullpen session. Fujikawa was placed on the disabled list earlier this month with a sprained right forearm and is currently throwing on flat ground from a distance of 135 feet. It’s not clear when he’ll be ready for a minor league rehab assignment. Cubs manager Dale Sveum plans to play the matchups with save chances for now. (Rotoworld)

Roster Moves – Week 4 – April 23rd, 2013

FAAB Acquisition:

  • SP Hiram Burgos, Brewers ($6 bid, Add to Actives)

Up:

  • 1B Freddie Freeman
  • C Russell Martin
  • SP Kevin Slowey

Move:

  • CM Chris Johnson (from 1B)

Down:

  • SP Dan Haren
  • RP Brad Ziegler
  • C Michael McKenry
  • CM Justin Turner

Cut:

  • RP Wilton Lopez

Notes:

  • Braves 1B Freddie Freeman was activated from the 15-Day Disabled List in time for Tuesday’s doubleheader at Colorado. He would have played last night, but the game was snowed out.
  • Dodgers SP Ted Lilly is expected to be activated from the 15-Day DL (shoulder) ahead of Wendesday’s start at the Mets. Lilly has been out all season thus far as he recovers from offseason shoulder surgery. The former abundance of starting pitching the Dodgers had has dried up, as Zack Greinke will be out until late June with a broken collarbone (suffered in the Carlos Quentin brawl), Aaron Harang has been traded, Chris Capuano is on the DL with a strained calf (also suffered in the Greinke/Quentin fight), and yesterday it was announced that Chad Billingsley would undergo Tommy John surgery tomorrow. Yikes.
  • Bidding for Brewers SP Hiram Burgos was competitive: Atomic RoadRunners won him at $6, while The Pi Train bid $2 and Misogynistic Padres bid $0.

Notes:

  • Reds shortstop Zack Cozart was back in the lineup Monday against the Cubs after coming off the bench the day before. He went 0 for 4 with a walk in a 5-4 win. Cozart, who was hit on the fingers during a bunt attempt Saturday, is batting .213 with four homers and 10 RBI through 18 games. (CBS Sports)
  • Mike Minor‘s scheduled Monday start will be pushed back to Tuesday thanks to the postponement of Monday’s contest due to weather. Minor was set to go Monday night, but he will now start Game 1 of a doubleheader scheduled for Tuesday. Minor will go against the same starter he was scheduled to face Monday, Jeff Francis. (Rotowire)
  • Braves activated 1B Freddie Freeman from the 15-day disabled list. Freeman will bat cleanup in his return Tuesday afternoon against the Rockies. The 23-year-old hit .412 (7-for-17) with one homer, one double and seven RBI over his first five games this season prior to going on the disabled list with a strained oblique. He has the potential for a breakout season. He went 7-for-17 in five games earlier this season and will pick up the everyday first base duties moving forward, so don’t hesitate to get him back in your lineup right away. (Rotowire)
  • Russell Martin stayed hot Monday, going 2-for-3 with a homer against the Phillies. Martin has hit in seven straight after a 2-for-31 start, upping his average from .065 to .241. Don’t expect it to get a whole lot higher. (Rotoworld)
  • Edward Mujica pitched a perfect ninth for a save in a 3-2 game against the Nationals on Monday. Mujica had the easier assignment tonight after Trevor Rosenthal faced the top of the order in a scoreless eighth; Mujica got the six-through-eight hitters and retired them all for his second save. Until he starts giving up homers again, Mujica should be the guy for saves in St. Louis. (Rotoworld)
  • Dan Haren lost to the Cardinals after allowing three runs in five innings on Monday night. Haren has yet to deliver a quality start in four trips to the mound. At least in his first three starts, he had a 12/1 K/BB ratio. Tonight, he struck out three, walked three and hit a batter. A quick turnaround hardly appears likely. (Rotoworld)
  • Hiram Burgos will remain in the Brewers’ rotation for at least another start, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. The Brewers were debating whether to keep Burgos in the rotation or send him back to Triple-A, but the finger injury Kyle Lohse suffered Monday led to the decision to keep him around for at least one more outing. Due to off days, Burgos could still head back to Triple-A after his next start, but if he pitches well, and/or Lohse needs more time to recover than initially expected, he could stick around longer. Burgos will take on the Dodgers in Los Angeles in his next start Friday. (Rotowire)
  • Ryan Braun went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Monday’s 7-1 win over the Padres. The home run was Braun’s fourth in his past five games and he already has 19 RBI in 54 at-bats. Fantasy owners do not need to worry about the neck spasms that kept Braun out of three games towards the beginning of the season.
  • Pirates outfielder Travis Snider hasn’t received a lot of coverage thus far, but he’s off to a strong start. While some of Snider’s gaudy .326/.415/.478 line has been fueled by a .429 BABIP, he’s flashing some skills that he was known for as a prospect. Snider currently boasts the highest walk rate of his major-league career. He’s taking free passes 13.2 percent of the time this year. On top of that, he’s also managed to cut down on his strikeouts. Over his career, Snider has struck out in 26.5 percent of his plate appearances, but that’s down to 20.8 this year. Strikeout rate is one of the first stats to stabilize, so it could mean he’s finally figuring things out in the majors. His other numbers seem to indicate that he’s improved as well. Snider is making slightly more contact than he has in past seasons. Snider’s contact rate has steadily increased over his career, and now sits at 81.7 percent. It’s the first time in Snider’s major-league career that he’s made contact with over 80 percent of his swings. The biggest red flag so far seems to be Snider’s lack of home runs. Snider has hit seven doubles already, which is the reason for his solid .478 slugging percentage. Looking at his hit charts, Snider has come dangerously close to hitting two balls out of the park, so it seems like the power will come eventually. (CBS Sports)
  • Padres outfielder Chris Denorfia continues to thrive with regular playing time. Denorfia has started eight of the last 10 games for San Diego and is batting .339 (19 for 56) through 17 games this season. Denorfia enters play Tuesday vs. Milwaukee batting .320 (8 for 25) with one home run, two RBI and three doubles in his last six games. (CBS Sports)
