Roster Moves – Week 14 – July 3rd, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • C Steve Clevenger, Cubs ($1 bid, Add to Actives)

Up:

  • 3B Todd Frazier (to UT)

Down: 

  • OF Jose Tabata (from UT)
  • C Devin Mesoraco

Cut:

  • 1B Matt Adams

Notes:

  • Adams had been optioned to Triple-A Memphis on June 22nd, and Allen Craig has taken the majority of the at-bats at 1B now that he’s healthy, and CM Matt Carpenter stays up for the Cardinals as he can cover 3B as well.
  • It was announced shortly after the transaction deadline that OF Jose Tabata had been optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis. I guess the Pirates brass thought the same thing we did.
  • The RoadRunners were out-bid on new Padres 2B Alexi Amarista. We bid $4, and Goodfellas bid $5.  2B/OF Elian Herrera would have been released had that pickup been successful.

 

Roster Moves – Week 13 – June 26th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • SP Jake Westbrook, Cardinals ($2, add to actives)
  • SP Dallas Keuchel, Astros ($3, add to actives)

Up:

  • 3B Chris Johnson
  • SP Brad Lincoln

Down:

  • 3B Todd Frazier
  • SP Christian Friedrich
  • RP Jose Arredondo

Cut:

  • RP Josh Lindblom
  • RP Shawn Camp

Notes:

  • Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki underwent groin surgery on Wednesday, June 20th, and will be out up to 8 weeks (end of August). Tulo injured his groin during one of his final rehab appearances (hamstring) with Triple-A Colorado Springs.
  • Cardinals 1B Matt Adams was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Friday, June 22nd, where he will again play every day. Cardinals corner man Matt Carpenter returned from the DL, and with OF Jon Jay returning, 1B/2B/OF Allen Craig will likely take over primary 1B duties.
  • Cardinals SP Jake Westbrook rejoins the 2012 Roadrunners.  He was released on June 5th, and since has gone on a tear, so my mistake there. I bid $2 to get him back, and The Pi Train bid $1.
  • We were the only bidders on Houston SP Dallas Keuchel, who in two starts (14 innings) has a complete game, 1-0 with a 1.29 ERA and 1.07 WHIP. Not many strikeouts, but we can use all the help we can get, and he’s at the Padres for his next start.
  • We lost the bidding for Pirates SP Kevin Correia, who has done well lately. RoadRunners bid $1, but The Pi Train got him for a $1 bid (I’m in 3rd place, he’s in 7th.)

 

Roster Moves – Week 10 – June 5th, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • RP Shawn Camp, Cubs ($2 bid, add to actives)
  • RP Brad Lincoln, Pirates ($1 bid, add to actives)
  • 2B/OF Alex Castellanos, Dodgers ($1, reserve)

Up:

  • 2B/3B Elian Herrera (to MI)
  • 3B Chris Johnson (to CM)
  • OF Tony Campana

Move:

  • SS Zack Cozart (from MI to SS)

Down:

  • 1B Matt Adams (from CM)
  • OF Jose Tabata
  • SS Troy Tulowitzki (15-Day DL)
  • SP Mike Minor

Cut:

  • SP Tim Stauffer
  • SP Jake Westbrook
  • SP Archie Bradley

Notes:

  • On May 31st, SS Troy Tulowitzki was placed on the 15-Day DL with a strained left groin.
  • SP Tim Stauffer has no timetable for his return from a sprained elbow injury, so I needed the roster space.
  • SP Jake Westbrook has lost his effectiveness, with an 8.55 ERA and 1.850 WHIP over the past three weeks.
  • 2B/OF Alex Castellanos was the fallback bid for Braves SS Andrelton Simmons.  I bid $6, and Get Off Kong! bid $7 (he had already released him). GOK had bid on Castellanos as 3rd contingency for $2.
  • A contingency bid for Shawn Camp was Pirates (and 2012 RoadRunner) Jason Grilli. Shoeless Jews got him for $1.

 

Roster Moves – Week 9 – May 29th, 2012

Up:

  • 1B Matt Adams (to CM)
  • 3B Todd Frazier (to UT)
  • OF J.D. Martinez

Down:

  • 3B Chris Johnson (from CM)
  • 2B Elian Herrera (from UT)
  • OF Tony Campana

Notes:

  • Last Tuesday, May 22nd, Cubs C Welington Castillo was placed on the 15-Day DL with a sprained right knee.

 

 

Roster Moves – Week 8 – May 22nd, 2012

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • 1B Matt Adams, Cardinals ($12 bid, add to reserves)
  • 3B Todd Frazier, Reds ($5 bid, add to reserves)

Cuts:

  • OF Nate Schierholtz
  • SP Wily Peralta (Minors)

Notes:

  • SP Tim Stauffer was placed back on the 15-Day DL on 5/18, retroactive to 5/15 with the same forearm strain that caused him to miss the first six weeks of the season.
  • Brewers SP Wily Peralta was a casualty of a RoadRunners roster crunch. While being ranked as the top Brewers’ prospect, he hasn’t been sharp thus far at Triple-A Nashville,  owning a 1-4 record, with 5.36 ERA, 1.40 WHIP with a 38:22 K:BB ratio in 42 innings.
  • Giants OF Nate Schierholtz has been passed on the depth chart by Gregor Blanco, and this was with Aubrey Huff out and Brandon Belt playing at 1B exclusively.
  • New acquisition Matt Adams will likely see plenty of time at 1B for the Cardinals, as Lance Berkman injured his knee (6-8 weeks minimum) and Allen Craig is also on the DL.  AaRr won the bidding for $12, while Get Off Kong! bid $5 and Misogynistic Padres bid $2.
  • New acquisition Todd Frazier will likely be receiving playing time due to Scott Rolen’s extended DL stint (some suggesting he’ll be out for the year).  Additionally, Juan Francisco was traded to Atlanta, and Juan Cairo, well, he’s 38-years old. Misogynistic Padres was the only other bid, at $2.
  • Former 2012 RoadRunner Cody Ransom (3B, Diamondbacks) was picked up for a $0 bid by Cover Zero.  Ransom was designated for assignment earlier in the day by Arizona, so, whoops.
  • Former 2012 RoadRunner Daniel Descalso (IF, Cardinals) was acquired by Shoeless Jews for a $0 bid. Shoeless Jews had no 2B on their roster, as Paul had (wisely) released Emmanuel Burriss in April, and alternate Eric Young, Jr had only appeared in 5 OF games to that point.
  • Former 2012 RoadRunner Jordan Pacheco (3B, Rockies) was listed as a contingency bid for Get Off Kong ($3, received Travis Ishikawa instead), and Misogynistic Padres ($0, received Adam Kennedy instead).
