Roster Moves – 2010 End-of-Season

Following each WBRL season, all non-protectable players are released back into the player pool, and reserved players not eligible for protection in the minor leagues are promoted to the active roster:

Up:

  • SP Mat Latos
  • SP Wade LeBlanc
  • RP Aroldis Chapman
  • RP Kenley Jansen
  • 1B Adam LaRoche
  • OF Marlon Byrd
  • 3B Casey Blake

Released / WBRL contract expired:

  • 1B Albert Pujols
  • 3B Chase Headley
  • SP Josh Johnson
  • SP Clayton Kershaw
  • SP Johnny Cueto

Released / Signed After Protection Deadline:

  • C A.J. Ellis
  • 2B Jonathan Herrera
  • SS Angel Sanchez
  • OF Cameron Maybin

Released / Non-Protectable Due to AL-NL Trade:

  • SP Dan Hudson

Remaining in Minors:

  • OF Trayvon Robinson

Roster Moves – Week 24 – September 14th, 2010

FAAB Acquisition:

  • SS Angel Sanchez, Astros ($0 bid) – Active at MI

Up:

  • 3B Chase Headley
  • OF Drew Stubbs (to UT)
  • SP Edinson VolquezCMCM
  • SP Yovani Gallardo
  • SP Ian Kennedy

Move:

  • UT Albert Pujols (to CM)

Down:

  • CM Adam LaRoche
  • MI Brooks Conrad
  • RP Aroldis Chapman
  • RP Tyler Clippard
  • SP Josh Johnson

Cut:

  • MI Geoff Blum

Notes:

  • The Marlins have shut down SP Josh Johnson for the 2010 season. He has an inflamed shoulder and a pulled back muscle, and he missed a throwing session over the weekend.  Since Johnson’s WBRL contract expires after this season, I guess it’s goodbye.
  • Hitting roster moves for this week were made purely on a batting average and stolen base basis.  So LaRoche (who contributes only in HR and RBI and is slumping a bit) goes to the bench for the first time in 2010.  Similarly, slumping 3B Chase Headley gets activated over similarly-slumping Casey Blake, due to Blake’s lack of mobility.
  • The only other team to make FAAB pickups, second-place Get Off Kong!, picked up former 2010 Roadrunner Luis Durango of the Padres.
  • Contingent selections for Sanchez were Colorado’s Jonathan Herrera (previously on the 2010 Roadrunners), and Cubs’ MI Darwin Barney.

Roster Moves – Week 14 – July 6th, 2010

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • RP Joel Hanrahan, Pirates ($0 FAAB) – Add to Actives

Up:

  • 3B Chase Headley
  • RP Drew Storen
  • SP Randy Wells

Down:

  • 3B Casey Blake
  • RP Sam Demel
  • SP Chris Volstad
  • SP John Ely

Cut:

  • SS Danny Espinosa

Notes:

  • No other bidders on Hanrahan, who joins the Roadrunners for the first time in his career, though he was tracked from Los Angeles to Washington and now to Pittsburgh. He’s a hedge for saves, with the expectation that Pirates closer Octavio Dotel will be dealt in the coming weeks.
  • Update (7/7): The Marlins demoted Chris Volstad to AAA New Orleans after Tuesday night’s rough start.
  • All-Star Teams were announced this weekend, and the Roadrunners have six on the roster.
    • SP Josh Johnson
    • 2B Brandon Phillips
    • SS Troy Tulowitzki (injured, will not participate)
    • UT Omar Infante (really? This selection universally panned)
    • OF Marlon Byrd
    • OF Matt Holliday

Overnight Dispatches – June 11th, 2010

Josh Johnson fired eight shutout innings on Thursday as the Marlins topped the Phillies 2-0. Johnson improved to 7-3 on the year while out-dueling the best pitcher in the National League: Roy Halladay. He struck out five batters and allowed only one hit while keeping a talented Phillies lineup to three hits. Leo Nunez earned his 13th save of the season with a nearly spotless ninth inning. (Rotoworld)

Tyler Clippard struck out a pair of batters in a scoreless ninth inning to notch the first save of his career on Thursday. Matt Capps has been used heavily lately, so Clippard was given the opportunity to close it out on Thursday. It’s interesting to note that prized rookie Drew Storen did not get the ball in the ninth inning, but rather Clippard. (Rotowire)

Jose Tabata (hamstring) was back in the Pirates’ lineup Thursday. Tabata collected his first career RBI with an opposite field double against Livan Hernandez Thursday night. Tabata hustled on his double and ran hard down the first base line on an infield groundout. It looks like the Bucs dodged a bullet with Tabata, but the promising rookie has dealt with a history of hamstring injuries throughout his minor league career. The rookie was lifted from Wednesday’s game with a cramp, but clearly it was just a precautionary measure. Tabata hit .308/.373/.423 for Triple-A Indianapolis before getting promoted to the big leagues earlier this week and is expected to bring a spark to the Pirates’ starting lineup. (Rotowire)

Madison Bumgarner has been fined and suspended three games for his actions in a Triple-A game on Monday. Bumgarner melted down after a runner was called safe after a pickoff attempt at first base. With Todd Wellemeyer likely headed to the disabled list before his next start, this could make Bumgarner less likely to be called up to take his place. Still, his suspension, which will cost him a start in Triple-A, keeps him eligible to be join the Giants before Wellemeyer’s next scheduled start. (Rotoworld)

Brandon Phillips went 4-for-5 with a two-run triple as part of an eighth-inning rally in the Reds’ 7-6 win over the Giants on Thursday. After Phillips’ triple tied the game at six, Joey Votto singled the second baseman in for the go-ahead run. Phillips had his big game while hitting leadoff for the first time since April 13, 2007 and just the 12th time in his career. He’s actually done quite well in those games, hitting .280 with three homers, seven RBI, nine runs scored and six walks. (Rotoworld)

Mat Latos allowed two runs and two hits over six innings Thursday as the Padres beat the Mets 4-2 in the first game of a doubleheader. He struck out eight in outdueling Johan Santana. Latos retired the final 13 batters he faced, but the Padres still chose to take him out after 99 pitches. Of course, that was an easier call with their bullpen. Luke Gregerson, Mike Adams and Heath Bell all pitched perfect innings after Latos left. He improved to 6-4 with the victory, bouncing back from a shaky outing against the Phillies in his last road start. Earlier this season, it looked like Latos would have to be streamed for his home starts, but he’s looking like a viable option even in shallow mixed leagues for most of his matchups thanks to a 64:20 K:BB ratio in 72.1 innings. (Rotoworld, Rotowire)

Johnson Pitches to Expectations with One Run, Ten K Outing

Josh Johnson bounced back from a couple of shaky outings, striking out 10 over six strong innings on Thursday. Johnson allowed just one run and five hits to earn the win. Johnson wasn’t his usual self in his first two starts, failing to post numbers anything close to a staff ace. Even though Johnson has struggled in two of three starts, he does have a healthy total of 20 strikeouts in 16 innings. Good times had by all this evening in the Marlins’ dugout. Johnson struck out 10 batters and allowed just one walk. Cameron Maybin hit his first dinger of the season. And Jorge Cantu collected his 15th RBI in 10 games. The Marlins are proving dangerous at 6-4 and Johnson showed tonight why many believe he can be one of the more dominant pitchers in the National League. Johnson fell one strikeout short of tying a career high. The only run Johnson allowed came in the third when Orlando Cabrera doubled home Chris Dickerson. This is the Johnson that Fantasy owners are used to seeing with an absolute dominant performance on Thursday. He matched his strikeout totals from his first two games in his start against the Reds. Johnson is a solid start for Fantasy Week 3 (April 19-25), as he takes on the Houston Astros on Wednesday. Johnson was 0-1 with a 8.31 ERA in one start against Houston last season. (Rotoworld, Rotowire, CBS Sports)

Johnson Again Shaky, But With 7 K’s in No-Decision

Josh Johnson allowed three runs on eight hits in five innings in a no-decision against the Mets Saturday. This was his second start to only last five innings, but at least he struck out seven batters in this one. Johnson has given up 13 hits and 7 earned runs over 10 innings in two starts. “It’s consistency. It’s there, and then it’s not,” Johnson explained. “It’s not what you want, but you’ve got to deal with it.” He got 60 of his 94 pitches over for strikes, but fantasy owners (and the Marlins owners) have probably been expecting more thus far. Johnson hasn’t looked like himself to start the season, posting a 6.30 ERA. But on the bright side, he has struck out 10 batters in 10 innings. Stick with him, he’s a high-end No. 2/low-end No. 1 Fantasy starter. His next start comes Thursday at home against Cincinnati. He’s 2-4 with a 5.33 ERA in his career against the Reds. (Rotowire, CBS Sports)

Johnson Touched Up by Mets – Four Runs in Five Innings

Josh Johnson allowed four runs over five innings Monday in a loss to the Mets. Johnson seemed behind this spring even before a bout with the flu cost him a start. He’s supposed to be fine physically, but it may take him another few weeks to get up to speed. Fantasy leaguers should keep using him and hope for the best in the meantime. Johnson was beat up by the Mets in his final spring start, so this wasn’t a complete shock. It is a questionable decision to allow the ace to pitch against the Mets, so close to his opening-day start. Johnson should prove much more effective in his second start against the Dodgers and be a solid option for all formats for Fantasy Week 2. (Rotoworld, CBS Sports)

Johnson Shaky, Gives Up 3 Solo Homers

Josh Johnson, who is getting over a case of the flu, gave up three runs in 4 2/3 innings Wednesday against the Mets. All of the runs came on solo homers. Johnson struck out five and walked none in the game. While he isn’t where he’d like to be headed into Opening Day, it’s highly unlikely that the Marlins will push back his season debut. (Rotoworld)

“All Systems Are Go” for Johnson

Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald writes that “all systems are go” for Josh Johnson (flu) and his scheduled Opening Day start. Johnson was forced to sit idly all weekend due to a bout with the flu and some questioned whether he would have enough time to get warmed up for the opener. He’s scheduled to throw a bullpen session Monday and may appear in a spring game on Wednesday. If both tasks are accomplished, it’s safe to guess that he will take the mound on April 5 against the Mets. Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez suggested Monday that Josh Johnson could miss his Opening Day start due to a bout with the flu. Johnson has been out since the middle of last week. “If it takes him three days [to get better] like it’s done everybody else, we may have to do something there [with the rotation to start the season],” Gonzalez said Monday. Ricky Nolasco would probably be asked to fill in. (Rotoworld)
