Roster Moves – Week 28 – October 2nd, 2012 – Final 3 Days!

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • C Hector Sanchez, Giants ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • CM Kevin Frandsen, Phillies ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • MI Pete Kozma, Cardinals ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • UT D.J. LeMahieu, Rockies ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • RP Jonny Venters, Braves ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • RP Josh Stinson, Brewers ($0 bid, Add to Actives)

Up:

  • SP Edinson Volquez
  • SP Jake Westbrook

Move: 

  • OF Donovan Solano (from MI)

Down: 

  • RP Jon Axford
  • SP Jhoulys Chacin
  • C Ryan Hanigan
  • CM Chris Johnson
  • MI Logan Forsythe

Cut:

  • OF Travis Snider
  • SS Troy Tulowitzki
  • OF Justin Maxwell
  • SP Wily Peralta
  • SP Zack Greinke
  • RP Luke Gregerson

Notes:

  • All of the pick-ups were made specifically with categories in mind. With only three full days remaining in the season, and the Atomic RoadRunners in first place over Misogynistic Padres by one point, we need all the assistance we can get.
  • Batting Average: Frandsen, LeMahieu, Kozma, and Sanchez are all hitting over .300. Hanigan, Johnson, Forsythe, Snider and Maxwell were dragging on the AVG.
  • ERA: Stinson and Venters were brought aboard to assist. Westbrook and Volquez have both pitched their last games in the regular season, as has Peralta and Greinke, so they can’t help. (Westbrook and Volquez can help by not pitching while on the active roster).
  • Tulowitzki isn’t coming back. He went on the DL back in May. Thanks a lot – you owe me $31.
  • Meanwhile, the Misogynistic Padres also made six pickups (we were the only two teams to make FAAB bids). His were for RBI, SB, AVG, and potentially Saves: OF Alex Presley, C Jason Castro, RP Santiago Casilla (former 2012 RoadRunner), RP Philippe Aumont, RP Jared Hughes, and RP Craig Stammen.

Roster Moves – Week 24 – September 4th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • RP Luke Gregerson, Padres ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • OF Chris Denorfia, Padres ($0 bid, Add to Actives)
  • C Kelly Shoppach, Mets ($0 bid, Add to Actives)

Up:

  • 2B Logan Forsythe (to UT)
  • RP Santiago Casilla
  • RP John Axford

Down: 

  • OF Jose Tabata
  • UT Jimmy Paredes
  • SP Jake Westbrook
  • SP Mark Rogers

Cut:

  • RP Kenley Jansen
  • OF Eric Young, Jr.
  • C Rob Brantly

Notes:

  • RP Kenley Jansen is out indefinitely with a heart-related condition (just like in 2011). He’s likely done for the season.
  • The Brewers announced that SP Mark Rogers is shut down for the year, following a career-high for innings pitched.

Roster Moves – Week 13 – June 26th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • SP Jake Westbrook, Cardinals ($2, add to actives)
  • SP Dallas Keuchel, Astros ($3, add to actives)

Up:

  • 3B Chris Johnson
  • SP Brad Lincoln

Down:

  • 3B Todd Frazier
  • SP Christian Friedrich
  • RP Jose Arredondo

Cut:

  • RP Josh Lindblom
  • RP Shawn Camp

Notes:

  • Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki underwent groin surgery on Wednesday, June 20th, and will be out up to 8 weeks (end of August). Tulo injured his groin during one of his final rehab appearances (hamstring) with Triple-A Colorado Springs.
  • Cardinals 1B Matt Adams was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Friday, June 22nd, where he will again play every day. Cardinals corner man Matt Carpenter returned from the DL, and with OF Jon Jay returning, 1B/2B/OF Allen Craig will likely take over primary 1B duties.
  • Cardinals SP Jake Westbrook rejoins the 2012 Roadrunners.  He was released on June 5th, and since has gone on a tear, so my mistake there. I bid $2 to get him back, and The Pi Train bid $1.
  • We were the only bidders on Houston SP Dallas Keuchel, who in two starts (14 innings) has a complete game, 1-0 with a 1.29 ERA and 1.07 WHIP. Not many strikeouts, but we can use all the help we can get, and he’s at the Padres for his next start.
  • We lost the bidding for Pirates SP Kevin Correia, who has done well lately. RoadRunners bid $1, but The Pi Train got him for a $1 bid (I’m in 3rd place, he’s in 7th.)

 

Roster Moves – Week 10 – June 5th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • RP Shawn Camp, Cubs ($2 bid, add to actives)
  • RP Brad Lincoln, Pirates ($1 bid, add to actives)
  • 2B/OF Alex Castellanos, Dodgers ($1, reserve)

Up:

  • 2B/3B Elian Herrera (to MI)
  • 3B Chris Johnson (to CM)
  • OF Tony Campana

Move:

  • SS Zack Cozart (from MI to SS)

Down:

  • 1B Matt Adams (from CM)
  • OF Jose Tabata
  • SS Troy Tulowitzki (15-Day DL)
  • SP Mike Minor

Cut:

  • SP Tim Stauffer
  • SP Jake Westbrook
  • SP Archie Bradley

Notes:

  • On May 31st, SS Troy Tulowitzki was placed on the 15-Day DL with a strained left groin.
  • SP Tim Stauffer has no timetable for his return from a sprained elbow injury, so I needed the roster space.
  • SP Jake Westbrook has lost his effectiveness, with an 8.55 ERA and 1.850 WHIP over the past three weeks.
  • 2B/OF Alex Castellanos was the fallback bid for Braves SS Andrelton Simmons.  I bid $6, and Get Off Kong! bid $7 (he had already released him). GOK had bid on Castellanos as 3rd contingency for $2.
  • A contingency bid for Shawn Camp was Pirates (and 2012 RoadRunner) Jason Grilli. Shoeless Jews got him for $1.

 

Roster Moves – Week 2 – April 10th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • SP Jake Westbrook, Cardinals ($0 bid, add to actives)

Up:

  • C Devin Mesoraco
  • 2B Daniel Descalso (to UT)

Moves:

  • OF Juan Pierre (from UT)

Down:

  • OF Nate Schierholtz
  • C Jordan Pacheco
  • SP Tim Stauffer

Cut:

  • SP Chris Volstad

Notes:

  • SP Tim Stauffer was placed on the 15-Day Disabled List on Thursday, April 5th with a right   triceps injury.  This was announced after the Week 1 transaction deadline.
  • The Pi Train was the other bidder for Jake Westbrook ($4 bid), as he was 4th contingency for Anthony Bass, 3rd contingency for Lucas Harrell, 4th contingency for Kirk Nieuwenhuis,  3rd contingency for Justin Maxwell, all of which ended up being moot.
