Roster Moves – Week 21 – August 24th, 2010

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • OF Cameron Maybin, Marlins ($1 bid), Reserve
  • UT Geoff Blum, Astros ($0 bis), Active at MI

Up:

  • RP Tyler Clippard
  • OF Lorenzo Cain

Down:

  • MI Brooks Conrad
  • SP Edinson Volquez
  • OF Roger Bernadina

Cut:

  • C Ronny Paulino
  • SS Cristian Guzman

Notes:

  • C Ronny Paulino was suspended for 50 games for testing positive for PEDs.  Since the Marlins only had 42 games left, he’s done for the season.  There have been 2 MLB PED suspensions this season, and the Roadrunners have had both (the other was Edinson Volquez).
  • The Roadrunners need one more steal to obtain 50 hitting points.  We’re stuck at 49.5 currently. However, the pitching has hemmorraged WHIP and ERA this week, dropping almost 5 points.  We went from 4th to 7th in WHIP and 3rd to 5th in ERA.
  • The Pi Train added former 2010 Roadrunner Nick Masset to his roster with a $0 bid. Masset has recovered nicely from his 5 earned runs given up on Opening Day. So have the Roadrunners, actually.
  • OF Cameron Maybin is expected to be the everyday CF for the Marlins starting today, as OF Cody Ross was claimed by (and traded to) the Giants. Maybin was originally purchased by Get Off Kong! for $11 in the 2010 WBRL auction, so his salary will be effective here.
  • The Maybin acquisition for $1 FAAB was the last dollar in our budget.  It’ll be $0 bids from here on out, folks!
  • This post was published from Hudsonville, Michigan, where AaRr staff arrived late last night.  FAAB bids were submitted from Springfield, Missouri early Monday morning.

Say Goodbye To: Burke Badenhop, Nick Masset

After getting a decent amount of work in the Marlins bullpen earlier in the season, Burke Badenhop only appeared in four games over the past two weeks. In those games, he was far less dominant than his earlier matchups, where he gave up only one run over 9-2/3 innings, with a save as well.

AaRr Stats – 2010 W ERA WHIP K S
Active Weeks 3-4 0 10.38 2.077 5 0

 

Reds reliever Nick Masset has been a disappointment thus far in 2010. Originally drafted by the Roadrunners in the 7th round of the 2010 minor league draft, Masset’s season got off to a rocky start, giving up 5 earned runs on opening day, including a grand slam to Yadier Molina. Masset has been shaky ever since, although he has secured the random vulture win.

AaRr Stats – 2010 W ERA WHIP K S
Active Weeks 0, 2 0 23.62 3.375 4 0
Reserve Weeks 1,3,4 3 6.10 1.936 18 0

  • On April 20th, Major League Baseball announced that Reds SP Edinson Volquez was suspended 50 games for testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug (PED).  Volquez’s suspension starts tomorrow (April 21) and will be served concurrently with his rehabilitation from Tommy John surgery while he’s on the 60-Day Disabled List.

    • 2008 – FAAB selection for $2 on June 24th, stayed on the roster one week, released July 1st.

Masset Gets 2 Wins in a Row – Recovering from Opening Day

Reds RP Nick Masset escaped from a bases-loaded, one-out situation in the bottom of the ninth inning on Monday against the Marlins. He wound up getting the win when the Reds scored in the 10th. Masset struck out Ronny Paulino. Cody Ross then worked the count full, so it was bases-loaded, 3-2 count, bottom of the ninth in a tie game. “That’s what you dream as a kid,” Masset said, “then you’re doing it. My job was to go out there and put up a zero. I definitely made it interesting.” Masset has picked up victories in each of his last two outings. He has worked his ERA down from 45.00 to 9.00 with four straight scoreless outings (four innings). He also has at least one strikeout in all five of his appearances. He is turning into a solid setup man for the Reds and worth using in Fantasy leagues that use true middle men. (CBS Sports)

Roster Moves – Week 2 – April 12th, 2010

Up:

  • RP LaTroy Hawkins
  • RP Nick Masset
  • RP Tyler Clippard
  • MI Cristian Guzman

Down:

  • RP Takashi Saito
  • RP Brian Bruney
  • RP Juan Gutierrez
  • MI Omar Infante

Notes:

  • Bid $0 FAAB on new starting C Chris Snyder for the Diamondbacks, but he was acquired by Stanimals for $3.

Masset Puts Grand Slam Behind Him

After allowing five runs in his one inning, including a Yadier Molina grand slam in the ninth inning, Reds reliever Nick Masset worked a perfect eighth inning that included an inning-ending strikeout of Albert Pujols on Wednesday. It lowered his ERA from 45.00 to 22.50. “I’m big on trying to get guys back in there after a rough outing as soon as possible so they can get it off of their mind,” manager Dusty Baker told MLB.com. “That grand slam was a wind-blown slam to me. It’s still a slam.” Masset does not see the opener as something to dwell on. “Personally, I was kind of run down,” Masset said. “I didn’t feel as locked in as I normally am. Coming back to the city and surroundings, you’re trying to get your feet underneath you. I felt my control was a little off and I got behind. Hitters were a little more comfortable in there. There was one hard-hit ball, and I went from one run to five runs just like that. It just made me realize there are certain things I need to focus a little more on and execute certain pitches at certain times.” In 2009 Masset led the Reds with a career-high 74 appearances and became the team’s eighth-inning man. He went 5-1 and posted a 2.37 ERA. That being said, his setup role on the Reds doesn’t make him someone to target. (CBS Sports)

Roster Moves – April 6th, 2010 – Week 1

Up:

  • SP Mat Latos
  • SP Ian Kennedy
  • SP Chris Volstad

Down:

  • RP Tyler Clippard
  • RP Nick Masset
  • RP LaTroy Hawkins

Notes:

  • I bid $0 on new Marlins SP Nate Robertson, was outbid by The Pi Train, who was awarded Robertson for $1.
  • The Pi Train was the only other team to submit FAAB bids, and received $4 OF Tyler Colvin and $2 SP Rodrigo Lopez.
  • Was originally going to send down Juan Gutierrez, but the Diamondbacks are playing the Padres and Pirates this week, while Nick Masset’s Reds play the Cardinals and Cubs this week.  Perhaps the 5 earned runs in 1 inning that Masset gave up Opening Day had something to do with it.

Masset Torched for 5 Earned in One Inning: ERA=45.000

Nick Masset gave up five runs in his inning of relief Monday against the Cardinals. Already a huge change from 2009, when Masset didn’t give up his fifth run until his 22nd appearance of the year and maintained a sub-2.00 ERA into July. The Reds need him to fill a setup role in front of Francisco Cordero, particularly since they’ve soured on Jared Burton. (Rotoworld)
