Say Goodbye To: Jody Gerut

Brewers OF Jody Gerut is currently in his third season with the Atomic Roadrunners. Basically the fifth outfielder for the Brewers, Gerut saw added playing time with the earlier ineffectiveness of RF Corey Hart, followed by injuries to both CF Carlos Gomez and the elderly CF Jim Edmonds. With both on the DL, Gerut had to leave the team to be with is wife during the birth of their child. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, it’s just poor timing on the part of Mrs. Gerut, as Jody was primed to play every day for up to two weeks. Gerut is batting .197 on the season with two homers and eight RBI over 71 at-bats. He entered Sunday’s game just 3 for 19 (.158) over his last five games. His Fantasy value is low in even NL-only leagues.

Meet the New Guy: Jody Gerut

Jody Gerut was originally selected by Stanimals in the 10th round of the 2010 minor league draft, but was subsequently released on April 13th. Gerut has received attention of late due to the banged-up status of Brewers OF’s Carlos Gomez (now on the 15-Day DL) and Jim Edmonds, especially after powering a game-winning grand slam in a six-RBI effort Saturday night. Gerut re-joins the squad that picked him up as a 2008 FAAB, protected him for 2009, and then released him following his trade from San Diego to Milwaukee, where he was allowed to rot on the bench.

Roster Moves – Week 6 – May 11th, 2010

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • OF Jody Gerut, Brewers ($0 bid) – Add to Actives

Up:

  • RP Juan Gutierrez

Down:

  • RP LaTroy Hawkins
  • OF Matt Diaz

Cut:

  • RP Takashi Saito

Notes:

  • Jody Gerut re-joins the Roadrunners for 2010.  Gerut had been on the 2008 squad (and was a great pickup) and the 2009 squad (protected from 2009), but was released following his trade to Milwaukee in May of 2009.
  • Gerut was originally drafted in the 2010 minor league draft by Stanimals, as a 10th-round minor league selection, and was subsequently released on April 13th, 2010.
  • First choice FAAB OF Cole Gillespie of the Diamondbacks was selected with a $0 FAAB bid by Goodfellas, who won the tie-break due to standings. Gerut was the contingency.
  • On Sunday morning (5/9/2010) RP LaTroy Hawkins was placed on the 15-Day DL with shoulder weakness.
  • Originally, MI Cristian Guzman was going to be activated at OF for Matt Diaz, as he has 18 games at SS, 9 games at 2B, and 3 games at OF – just meeting the 10% positional eligibility rule.  However, late last night the Brewers placed OF Carlos Gomez on the 15-day DL with a rotator cuff strain, so Gerut should see some at-bats.

Gerut Traded to Brewers for Tony Gwynn, Jr.

Brewers acquired outfielder Jody Gerut from the Padres for outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr. Gerut is coming off a breakthrough season in which he batted .296 with 14 home runs and 43 RBI. This year he regressed to .221 with four home runs and 21 RBI. Gerut will be a fourth outfielder with the Brewers, devoid of any fantasy value outside of deep NL-only leagues. (Rotoworld)

Gerut Homers Again in Limited Duty

Padres OF Jody Gerut went 2-for-5 with a solo homer, his fourth of the year, in Sunday’s loss to the Astros. Gerut has been awful since mid-April, and his average has dropped about 100 points to .228 over that time span. Continue to worry about him in only deeper NL-only leagues. (CBS Sports)

Gerut Extends Slump

CF Jody Gerut was a late replacement for Chase Headley (sore left shoulder) and drove in the Padres’ first run with a sacrifice fly. But he finished 0-for-3 to extend his slump to 2-for-21 and 5-for-39. Gerut is a streaky outfielder best left for deeper NL-only leagues at this point. Watch him for a hot stretch, though. (CBS Sports)

Roster Moves – May 5th – Week 5

FAAB Acquisition:

  • RP Clay Condrey, Phillies ($0 bid, Add to Actives)

Up:

  • SP Shairon Martis
  • SP Chad Gaudin
  • CM Emilio Bonifacio
  • OF Austin Kearns (to DH)

Move:

  • 1B Conor Jackson (to OF)
  • CM Casey Kotchman (to 1B)

Down:

  • RP John Grabow
  • RP Kyle McClellan
  • RP Juan Gutierrez
  • 3B Brian Barden
  • OF Jody Gerut

Cut:

  • OF Jose Tabata (Minors)

Notes:

  • Tabata will miss the next six weeks with a hamstring strain, and he was only hitting .250 at AA Altoona, so at this point he’s not a strong protection for 2010.
