Roster Moves – Week 1 – April 2nd, 2013

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • SP Kevin Slowey, Marlins ($0 bid, Add to Actives)

Down:

  • RP Wilton Lopez

Cut:

  • SS Rafael Furcal

Notes:

  • FAAB bidding was fairly intense, and two strong bids of the Roadrunners were superseded.
  • Newly-minted Brewer Kyle Lohse went to The Pi Train, with a $42 bid, while Roadrunners bid $30, Get Off Kong! bid $20, and Misogynistic Padres bid $11.
  • New (temporary) Cardinals closer Mitchell Boggs went for $30 to Goodfellas, with Roadrunners bidding $23, Get Off Kong! bidding $21, and Shoeless Jews bidding $13.
  • New RoadRunner SP Slowey won the #5 starter job with the Marlins, but will be starting Game Two of the season (Wednesday at Washington), as both Nathan Eovaldi and Henderson Alvarez are starting the season on the DL. The only other starters available are Wade LeBlanc and just-called-up phenom Jose Fernandez (#8 prospect overall), who has only pitched in A-Ball thus far. Yikes in Florida.

Roster Moves – Week 26 – September 20, 2011

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • 1B/OF Bryan LaHair, Cubs ($0 bid) – Add to actives at OF

Up:

  • RP Wilton Lopez

Down:

  • OF Matt Holliday

Cut:

  • SP Randy Wells

Notes:

  • Final full-week roster move of the season.
  • Only Get Off Kong! and Atomic Roadrunners made pickups this week.  GOK picked up former 2011 RoadRunner Kyle Lohse, who was also on Goodfellas from August 23 to September 13th.
  • OF Matt Holliday is “doubtful” for the rest of the season, due to inflammation of his right middle finger.  As of yesterday, he had yet to resume swinging a bat, even though the Cardinals are 2-1/2 games behind the Braves in the Wild Card race.

 

Roster Moves – Week 20 – August 9, 2011

Trade:

Acquired from Cover Zero:

  • OF Ryan Braun (2/$42), Brewers
  • RP Chad Qualls (2/$7), Padres

Traded to Cover Zero:

  • RP Joel Hanrahan (1/$5), Pirates
  • SP Shelby Miller (3/$8), Cardinals (minors)

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • RP David Hernandez, Diamondbacks ($2 bid), Add to actives
  • RP Wilton Lopez, Astros ($0 bid), Add to actives
  • RP Jose Veras, Pirates ($0 bid), Add to actives

Down:

  • SP Charlie Morton
  • SP Dillon Gee

Cut:

  • SP Kyle Lohse
  • UT Jeff Baker
  • OF Nate McLouth

Notes:

  • Trade: OF Braun was selected for $42 in the 2011 WBRL auction. RP Qualls was selected in the 2nd Round of the minor league draft, thus the $7 salary.  Both are protectable for 2012 and 2013.  Hanrahan is protectable for only 2012, but Miller is protectable as a minor-leaguer.  Miller was the first-overall minor league selection by Misogynistic Padres ($8 price), who released him April 19th.  The RoadRunners picked him up for $1 FAAB bid on June 14th.
  • Additional FAAB bids were placed on new Padres 1B/UT Jesus Guzman for $1, and for Braves OF Jose Constanza ($1).  They were acquired by Get Off Kong! (Guzman – $15), and by Cover Zero (Constanza – $94).
  • RP Hernandez had previously been acquired by Get Off Kong! on April 12th (released June 28th) and July 5th (released August 2nd).  His salary is $5 from that first pickup.
  • OF Chris Heisey was placed on the 15-Day DL on August 6th with an oblique injury.  He is expected to be out 3-4 weeks.

Roster Moves – Week 14 – June 28, 2011

Up:

  • OF Nate McLouth
  • OF Chris Heisey
  • CM Jeff Baker
  • SP Kyle Lohse

Down:

  • OF Jose Tabata
  • OF Charles Blackmon
  • CM Anthony Rizzo
  • SP Edinson Volquez
Notes:
  • Pirates OF Jose Tabata was placed on the 15-day DL on Friday 6/24 with a strained quad muscle.

Roster Moves – Week 12 – June 14, 2011

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • C Ronny Paulino, Mets ($6 bid), add to actives
  • 1B Paul Goldschmidt, Diamondbacks ($3 bid), reserve
  • SP Shelby Miller, Cardinals ($1 bid), reserve

Up:

  • OF Matt Holliday
  • SP Tim Stauffer

Down:

  • SP Kyle Lohse
  • OF Jon Jay

Cut:

  • C Henry Blanco
  • RP Vicente Padilla
  • RP Hong-Chih Kuo

Notes:

  • It was announced that RP Vicente Padilla would require surgery on the bulging disc in his neck, the same injury that had him open the season on the DL. He’ll be out a while.
  • Padilla’s teammate on the Dodger’s DL, Hong-Chih Kuo, was released for the second time this season. Kuo had been protected from 2010, was released on May 24th when he went on the DL with an anxiety disorder, was picked up May 31st when his rehab starts went well, and has since hit a bit of a wall.  So, as I’m tired of chasing non-existent Dodgers saves, he and Padilla are gone, as (while all this was going on), Jonathan Broxton is rehabbing as well, and will likely beat him back to the active roster.  We still have Kenley Jansen, however.
  • C Ronny Paulino was released by Cover Zero last week.  (He had been FAAB’d for $0 bid by Cover Zero on May 17th). He then proceeded to go 4-for-4 with a homer and three RBI. This is Paulino’s fourth visit on the RoadRunners.  He was on the roster as a Pirate in 2006 and 2007, and also was on the 2010 Championship squad, before he was suspended for 50 games (PED use) with 42 games left to play.  He’s still no Buster Posey, but he’s seeing more action than Henry Blanco.
  • 1B Paul Goldschmidt leads the minor leagues in home runs at Double-A Mobile, and is rumored to be called up after the All-Star break. In 233 at-bats for the Bay Bears, he is batting .348, with 21 home runs, 59 RBI and 6 steals. Plus, he sports a 53/46 BB/SO ratio.  His OPS is 1.156 – that’s ridiculous.
  • SP Shelby Miller was the No. 1 overall WBRL minor league pick by Misogynistic Padres, but was released April 19th.  Thus his $8 salary. He was the 19th overall pick in 2009 out of a Texas high school, and he is (as per Keith Law) the best pitching prospect in the minors. He dominated Single-A, and was promoted two weeks ago to Double-A.  Probably won’t get called up in 2011.
  • Former 2011 RoadRunner Chris Capuano was grabbed for $12 FAAB by Get Off Kong! (and Chris Narveson was his second contingency bid at $2).
  • Speaking of Narveson, he was selected by Goodfellas for $1 FAAB (GOK!’s $2 would have gotten him), beating out Misogynistic Padres and their $0 bid.
  • Injury Update: 2B Jeff Baker was activated Monday from the 15-Day DL.  OF Matt Holliday will be activated Thursday 6/16 from the 15-Day DL.  OF Nate McLouth remains on the 15-Day DL, but will return in the next week.  RP Kenley Jansen is making rehab appearances, and is likely a week away from returning.

Roster Moves – Week 5 – April 26, 2011

FAAB Acquisition:

  • SP Kyle Lohse, Cardinals ($12 bid, activate)

Up:

  • SP Chris Capuano

Down:

  • RP Kenley Jansen
  • RP Rafael Betancourt

Cut:

  • RP Bobby Parnell

Notes:

  • Parnell was still on the 15-Day DL due to a blood clot in his middle finger.
  • Former RoadRunner Jorge Cantu was picked up by Goodfellas ($0 bid) and he released Marlins SP Chris Volstad.
  • RP Hong-Chih Kuo (back strain) is on-track to come off the DL late this week.
