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.

Say Goodbye To: Luis Durango

Padres OF Luis Durango was called up from AAA Portland when both OF Kyle Blanks and OF Scott Hairston went on the DL. A speed-merchant with a problem getting on base, Durango had 17 steals thus far in AAA – in 27 attempts. He was never activated for the Roadrunners, and was sent back down Tuesday, when Hairston was activated from the DL. Durango netted only 13 at-bats in his six days on the Padres roster.

Meet the New Guy: Luis Durango

The Padres called up Luis Durango from the minor leagues. He joins the team Tuesday for the start of a series against the Cardinals. The Padres are playing National League opponents this week and were short a position player. Durango is considered one of the fastest players in the Padres organization. He is batting .305 for the Beavers with 17 stolen bases, although he has been caught 10 times. With two outfielders on the DL (Kyle Blanks and Scott Hairston), Durango will provide depth and someone to pinch run. Consider him merely a deeper NL-only Rotisserie flier at this point. Durango’s big season at Paortland has not gone unnoticed. The 24-year old is hitting .305 with 17 stolen bases and adds a different dimension than the guy he’s replaced, Kyle Blanks, who is on the disabled list with a hamstring injury. Durango provides significant keeper value, but needs to produce to stay up once Blanks returns.
