Roster Moves – Week 2 – April 9th, 2013

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • RP Jim Henderson, Brewers ($39 bid, Add to Actives)
  • OF Xavier Paul, Reds ($1 bid, Add to Actives)
  • 3B Eric Chavez, Diamondbacks ($0 bid, Add to Actives at CM)

Move:

  • 1B Chris Johnson (from CM)

Down:

  • 1B Freddie Freeman
  • RP Mark Melancon
  • OF Chris Denorfia

Cut:

  • 1B Casey Kotchman
  • 2B Logan Forsythe
  • RP Josh Collmenter

Notes:

  • 1B Freddie Freeman was placed on the 15-Day Disabled List with a strained right oblique. Atlanta’s Chris Johnson will slide over from 3B to 1B during Freeman’s absence.
  • 1B Casey Kotchman was placed on the 15-Day Disabled List with a torn left hamstring. It is expected that Kotchman will miss the rest of April.
  • The FAAB bidding for Henderson, who has replaced John Axford as Brewers closer for the time being: $39 – Atomic Roadrunners, $26 The Pi Train, $16 Get Off Kong!, $5 X-Men, $0 Misogynistic Padres
  • The Atomic RoadRunners had bid on Marlins 1B Greg Dobbs, who is replacing Kotchman in the lineup. The bidding: $5 (The Pi Train), $2 (Goodfellas), and  $1 (Atomic RoadRunners).  Chavez was our contingency pick, with Reid Brignac of the Rockies the backup there ($5 to Fear of a Black Ballclub).

Roster Moves – Week Zero – March 31st, 2013

Up:
  • RP Edward Mujica
  • RP Wilton Lopez
Down:
  • SP Ted Lilly
  • SP Michael Wacha
Notes:
  • This is a one-day “Week Zero”, consisting of Opening Day games of Monday, April 1st.  Week 1 starts Tuesday, April 2nd.
  • SS Rafael Furcal was placed on the 15-Day DL with an elbow strain on March 24th. He has already undergone Tommy John surgery, and will miss all of the 2014 season.
  • 2B Logan Forsythe was placed on the 15-Day DL with a recurrence of plantar fasciitis on March 26th. Expected to fill in at 3B for the also-injured Chase Headley, Forsythe will instead be in a walking boot for three weeks, and then will be expected to miss an additional three weeks during rehab.
  • SP Ted Lilly was placed on the 15-Day DL with a shoulder injury. Lilly underwent shoulder surgery in the offseason, and is a few weeks behind the seven other starters on the Dodgers. The hope is that either Chris Capuano or Aaron Harang might be traded in the interim, and this is assuming Chad Billingsley’s elbow stays attached.

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.

Notes:

  • SP Wily Peralta had been released by the RoadRunners on May 22nd.
  • Previously-injured (thoracic outlet syndrome) SP Chris Carpenter had been selected in the 2012 WBRL Auction by Cover Zero for $14. He was released on August 21st.

Down:

  • 2B Logan Forsythe (from UT)

Cut:

Notes:

  • SP Ben Sheets was placed on the 15-Day Disabled List with right shoulder inflammation
  • The big Dodgers-Red Sox trade happened this week, with 1B Adrian Gonzalez, injured OF Carl Crawford, and SP Josh Beckett joining the free-agent pool. The RoadRunners bid $0 for Gonzalez, but were surprisingly out-bid:
    • Adrian Gonzalez: $61 (Cover Zero), $37 (Get Off Kong!), 11 (Misogynistic Padres), $9 (Shoeless Jews), $0 (AaRr)
    • Josh Beckett: $39 (Cover Zero), $37 (Goodfellas), $12 (Get Off Kong!), $11 (Misogynistic Padres),  $10 (The Pi Train)
    • Carl Crawford: $19 (Get Off Kong!) and $11 (Misogynistic Padres) – even though he’s out for the year, and not protectable.

  • 2B Kolten Wong is a minor-league protectable prospect for the Cardinals. Today was the deadline for minor-league protections.

  • The only other minor league prospect added to WBRL rosters was D’Backs OF A.J. Pollock, added by X-Men for a $4 bid.
