Roster Moves – Week 6 – May 8th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • OF Oscar Taveras, Cardinals ($0 bid, Prospect, Minors)
  • 3B Cody Ransom, Diamondbacks ($0 bid, Add to Actives at UT)

Move:

  • OF Tony Campana (from UT)

Down:

  • OF J.D. Martinez

Cut:

  • RP Fernando Salas
  • OF Domonic Brown (Minors)

Notes:

  • Bidding was heated on new Cubs closer Rafael Dolis. The Atomic RoadRunners bid $11, but X-Men won the bidding at $26. Other bids were $17 (Shoeless Jews) and $10 (Misogynistic Padres). Dolis will split time with James Russell (no bids) as Carlos Marmol has repeatedly imploded.
  • No other bids were placed on Taveras or Ransom.
  • Astros OF J.D. Martinez has been in a slump, batting .175 over the past 3 weeks, with only 2 extra-base hits (both doubles). He was batting .056 the past 7 games, with 1 hit in 18 AB.
  • Diamondbacks Cody Ransom has been playing a lot at 3B in place of ice-cold Ryan Roberts.  It won’t last for the 38-year old journeyman, but he’s currently hitting .351 with 4 HR in 37 AB this season, which could be useful.
  • RP Fernando Salas was released due to poor performance. Benched on the RoadRunners after Week 2, Salas keeps getting lit up, with a 6.35 ERA and 2.029 WHIP, and his numbers are trending the wrong way.  21-14-7 day progression for ERA: 7.04 – 8.44 – 10.80.  Same for WHIP: 2.087 – 2.250 – 2.700.  Stats while active for AaRr: 3.2 IP, 6 K’s, 4.91 ERA, 1.91 WHIP. Looks like we got out before too much damage had occurred.
  • Phillies “prospect” OF Domonic Brown was released as well. The Phillies basically ruined him. The brought in 3 free-agent OF’s to compete for the LF job (Scott Podsednik, Juan Pierre, and Laynce Nix), plus incumbent John Mayberry, Jr.  Meanwhile, the future of the elderly franchise gets sent to AAA for the third season, where he’s (probably) dejected and is currently batting .247 in 93 ABs with 0 HR, 3 SB, 9 Runs and 13 RBI, with an OPS of .645.  If anyone needs a change of scenery, Brown is it.
  • Meanwhile new OF prospect, St. Louis Cardinal Oscar Taveras, is raking, and is primed to contribute in 2013.  Currently assigned to Double-A Springfield, Taveras is hitting .325 in 114 ABs, with 8 HR, 27 RBI, 16 Runs and 2 SB – with an OPS of 1.032.

  • Astros OF Hunter Pence was traded to the Phillies July 29th for 1B Jonathan Singleton, SP Jarred Cosart and two additional players to be named later.
  • Diamondbacks 1B Brandon Allen was traded to the A’s July 31st with RP Jordan Noberto for RP Brad Ziegler. Allen was immediately assigned to Triple-A Sacramento.
  • Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt was called up from Double-A Mobile to replace Brandon Allen on the roster.
  • Atomic RoadRunners placed an unsuccessful bid on new Pirates 1B Derrek Lee (traded from Orioles at the deadline).
