  • Zavada’s middle name is “Pflibson”

Roster Moves – June 2nd – Week 9

  • San Diego RP Edward Mujica was a backup pickup if Fox wasn’t acquired.  He was picked up by Get Off Kong!
  • Conor Jackson may not return this season, due to his contraction of Valley Fever.  He’s currently on the 15-Day DL, and based on his $16 price tag and .190 batting average, he probably isn’t a candidate to be protected.

McClellan Secures a Hold – Wowza

Kyle McClellan (2-1) allowed a hit and a walk in 1 1/3 innings Wednesday and Ryan Franklin worked a perfect ninth for his eighth save in eight chances, part of a parade of five relievers who limited Pittsburgh to two hits McClellan is a solid middle reliever for all leagues that use true middle men. He is a candidate for relief victories and holds and while post a solid ERA and WHIP. (CBS Sports)

Roster Moves – May 5th – Week 5

FAAB Acquisition:

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

Up:

  • SP Shairon Martis

  • CM Casey Kotchman (to 1B)

  • RP John Grabow

  • 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.

McClellan’s “Relief Start” Rained Out

Kyle McClellan’s “relief start” against the Nats on Sunday was rained out. He was only slated to start in place of Kyle Lohse due to the weather anyhow. He’ll resume his usual bullpen duties. McClellan was to be making his first major league start. He has yet to pitch more than three innings in 78 relief appearances over the last two seasons. (Rotowire)

McClellan Follows the Trickle-In Effect of Inherited Runners

Cardinals reliever Kyle McClellan allowed a hit and two walks in an inning of work Monday against Atlanta, but did not allow a run. He earned his third hold of the season. McClellan is working set up along with Jason Motte and Dennys Reyes behind closer Ryan Franklin. The Cardinals figure to have the lead more often than not this summer and McClellan is quickly becoming a good middle relief option in leagues that reward their use. (CBS Sports)

McClellan Moves Up in Cardinals Pecking Order, Gets Win

Kyle McClellan earned the win over the Cubs Friday with a scoreless eighth inning. McClellan looks like the top set-up man for Ryan Franklin right now, but he’s already appeared in eight of 17 games this season. He was overworked early last year, and it showed down the stretch, but if you want to ride him now while he’s still fresh, go ahead. He already has one win, one save, and two holds this year and he has a 1.80 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, and 10:2 K:BB ratio. (Rotowire)

McClellan Contributes Two Scoreless Innings

Kyle McClellan worked two of the four scoreless innings, and Dennys Reyes, Jason Motte and Ryan Franklin did the rest, as Motte gained his first major league victory and Ryan Franklin his third save of the season Tuesday. The Cardinals are 9-5 now, with the starters 8-1 and the bullpen 1-4. Motte, McClellan and Reyes are viable middle relievers for the leagues that use true middle men right now. Motte could still develop back into a saves option, but he will need a good amount of time proving himself in the setup role now first. (CBS Sports)

McClellan Low on Saves Totem Pole – Pitches in 4th Inning

Kyle McClellan was brought into Tuesday’s game in the fourth inning after Chris Carpenter had to leave with an injury. This is a pretty clear indication that last Friday’s save was just happenstance; McClellan is well down on the list of potential closers in the Cardinals’ bullpen. (Rotowire)
